Done and Done!

Well here I sit on Sunday night exhausted, happy, and just a bit proud of myself.  The craft fair was Saturday and with my fantastic husband's help we did alright.  The dream of selling out did not become reality but wow what a great experience.  I chatted with women who stopped by the table and fingered the items and told me how they/ their mom/ their grandma/ their aunt... crochet too.  What yarns they like and what they make.  And just as I was about to get disappointed (inside) they would tell me how much they liked my work, how even my stitches were and what a great variety of work I did.  No, really, they did.  :)  So even though I didn't come home rich with cash, I came home much richer in spirit.

"Would I do it again?", you ask.  Hmmm.  I'll wait to answer that when my feet stop throbbing.   :)  We would have to make a lot of changes.  Our booth set up wasn't the most pretty and my banner wasn't the right size and I think instead of making things that other people told me sold at craft fairs (hats & wristlets - of which I only sold 1 hat) I would make lots of teddy bears, curly scarfs in lot of shades, and large afghans. And that would mean I have to start now for next year. ha ha

Have you sold at craft fairs?  What did you like best?  What would you do differently?  Did you leave rich in cash or spirit?
