Talking Craft Show Verdict

And the verdict is...

OMG I'm exhausted! Sunday, Monday, AND Tuesday, I didn't get to bed before midnight, (closer to one a.m.) and had to be up only a few hours later. I was stopped last night because the poly ran out. I had at least six or seven signs that were supposed to go, but had to be left behind. I also had many that were still drying this morning, and I had to put the bows/final touches on them at the fair.

So here are a few pictures of the original layout of my "booth." there's a couple missing, but they weren't done yet. I had to put their bows on yet. A local radio station here in Michigan (WCSX) does a "City of the Week" and this week is Rochester, which is where I work/had the craft fair. Imagine my surprise when the hosts of the program want to take their picture at my booth, holding my signs/product! (The girl that runs the fair and one of the members of the group held a frog, and the woman held up my sign that had a deer on it. You talk about STOKED! So, I was told to watch their site, because my booth may make it to their website. How KOOL is that???

Looks Nice Barb. Maybe the publicity will get you some custom order jobs.

Not bad; we always wish we could "sell out" but I won't complain. Learned the app that comes with the square, and I was extremely happy at the capabilities of it. I thought it was just for charge purchases, but on one order, I noticed the "cash" section, and tried it. I hadn't done much yet, so I was able to put in all my cash sales, and thus helping me keep track of stock, as well.

Nice items and display. Tell me, why did Polly run out? Was she getting tired and needed a nap?
