Default My show today...and tomorrow :(

So I'm disappointed. I paid the most I ever have for a booth ($259) for a two day show. It was today from 3-7, and so far I've only sold $247. Which pretty much sucks for me. I hope tomorrow is better. It's 9-4 tomorrow. Also, there are like at least 4 other booths that sell bows and other hair accessories. Last year when I scoped this show out there was nothing of the sort. We'll see how tomorrow goes. I'll post pics tomorrow too. This makes me more glad I'm going to pretty much stop with the shows.

At least you are almost even so far so you won't lose money, but I know the object is to make some. It's a lot of work to make everything, set up, tear down, ect. You want it to be worth your time. Hopefully you will do better tomorrow!

I'm sorry you had a not so good day! Tomorrow will probably be better!

I don't know what area you're from, but a lot of people here were either watching football or shopping the big chain stores today, so I'm SURE you'll have more sales tomorrow!!!

Having at least 4 other booths selling the same thing doesn't do too much to help sales I hope you're at least far enough away from each other.

Sending good wishes today is BETTER for you!

You have to also remember that yesterday was black Friday and most people were at the malls and big department stores. We used to do a 2 day show just like that and Friday it was a waste of time even being there, but Saturday was busy! If the show was promoted well then I bet today will be much better for you. It does suck having that many other bow booths but here it is like that at almost every show. Good luck! I can't wait to see pics!

look on the bright side...you almost made your booth fee back! so anything you make from this point forward is a bonus! I had a horrible show a week before we opened the store, it was 100 plus out (over the 4th) it was a week long, I paid 250.00 for the spot, the first 3 days I spent about 200 bucks on food, and what not, by the third day i was so hot and irritable i had just about enough, but voewed to stick it out, that was until i had a tray (150) dogtags go missing! I packed up and hauled it out of there, that was my WORST show ever we lost so much there grrrr!!
Good thing is now you know NOT to do that one next time!! Best of luck the rest of the day today and tomorrow!!
