Western Montgomery Career and Technology Center Craft Fair.
On each of the side folds I attached 4 clear acetate boxes with self adhesive Velcro squares, so they can be removed and the board folded flat. I displayed other boxed collections, step cards, pop up cards, shaped cards and easel cards to offer a variety.
On the higher level I displayed the little birds houses, a lantern and other 3D paper projects. I had a clip board for guests to write down their email addresses if interested in joining my blog, or taking classes. For that they received a free paper rose.
17 ladies signed up, a few requested a make and take card for the Red Hats February luncheon meeting, while others wanted classes on different techniques, and to learn how to make a paper rose. Pretty good. I entered all the emails now I hope they will confirm the subscriptions.
I priced all the sealed cards with colored dots, then displayed the price of each color. $2.00-$4.00-$5.00 cheaper then Hallmark yet handmade. My intention was to get rid of them... but people weren't buying. I did make some petty cash and covered the cost of the table.
The best part is my friend Anne was there to support me. She made her famous Russian snow ball almond cookies. 2 little snowballs in a clear bag tied up with a pretty polka dot ribbon, beautifully displayed in a hat box with a little mouse mascot offering them for free. Now how great is that?
I did meet and socialize with some amazing people, talented and generous with helpful suggestions and advise. I do consider the fair to be a successful event. Will I do it again? Oh yea I'll try it again you just never know, it could be way better. Next time maybe I'll use pretty table clothes instead of a sheet, and create a sign for the front with fabric. Do you have any ideas to share? I'd love to hear about them.
A single conversation with a wise man is better than ten years of study.
Be well my friend and thanks for stopping by. I value your feedback.
