Weekend Craft Sale...

Back in June or July I signed up for a local craft sale. This was my first large show. I had done one in a very small town for a few hours but didn't have any stock hardly at all and no one showed up lol

It was a lot of work to prepare, choosing the images, editing them and then printing. Choosing beautiful frames, and washing them and doing them up. And then pricing too.

It ran Friday 1-10pm, and Saturday 10-4pm. It was in our large building that houses a concert hall, art gallery & museum. It had a lot of tables in the main lobby way, a lot in the room behind it, then a lot upstairs and in another room upstairs. Not sure how many artists... but I'd say about 80-150 maybe. And it was really busy with people looking around.

This is what my booth looked like, as I sold items I kept moving it around!

These are the items I sold... I sold more than I thought I would, this being my first big sale. So I was very happy. And I met some really nice people, heard some really interesting stories and got to visit with my friend who helped me out.

The items I didn't sell, I will sell the smaller items that can be shipped in my Etsy shop and the framed prints locally.
