It’s that time of year….for local handmade shows! I always love setting up at Lucky Day Emporium! ..and the holiday shows are the best!
Here’s my setup from The Fancy Flea at the beginning of November. I had a 10×10 space to work with. But I knew at Lucky Day I would only have about a 6 foot length to use. Matt (my talented carpenter of a hubby) had to sort out how to convert this 10×10 wooden structure into something that would look lovely, display all of my handmade goods, and still fit the brand and style…with a 6 foot limitation.
He managed to turn this:
It’s fantastic. Boy do I love him.
Things started out a bit on the slow side for me. But by the time late afternoon came, I guess “my crowd” rolled out of bed, took a break from scouring the local thrift stores, and headed over for some handmade loveliness and vintage goodies! I sold quite a few crochet headbands, crochet cowls, and tons of cup sleeves! People walked away with gifts that were perfectly perfect for the ones they love, and maybe even a couple goodies for themselves
P.S. I also got a few custom orders right there at the show! That was a new experience for me. Sure I have gotten custom requests through etsy or from friends on Facebook…..but it was fun wheelin’, dealin’ , and talking designs/colors with my customers right there in front of me! What fun!
