Craft Show: The Good, The Bad & The Ugly

...the craft show is done. Here are pictures. The first one is of my mom's table and the second one is of my table.

Alright so the break down (just a warning that I might be a little Debbie Downer and whining a bit in this post-sorry!)...overall, we sold $94 so that covered the cost of the both and the lunch we bought there so that's the good. The bad for me is I only made $2 (sold two little things of gift tags). The ugly, I waited until I got home but I got very upset...it was very, very ugly! I'm like trying to find my niche...something I like to do and something I'm good at and I apparently can't find anything so I got upset when I got home.
Anyways, so that's the recap of the craft show, the good, the bad and the very ugly. I was just about to blog and make brownies when I saw the neighbors yelling at Emma so I had to jump up and sure enough, Matt left the back gate open and Shadow was down the street. Thank goodness for good neighbors!!!

:o( I'm so sorry. Don't be hard on yourself. We went to a craft show this weekend, and no one was buying anything. I think people are still struggling with money? Don't give up if it is really something you want to do. I know that's easier said than done.

Sorry about the bad luck at the craft show. :( It's always disappointing when you set out to do something and it doesn't work out the way you hoped. Been there, done that a million times!

And maybe, in a few weeks, when the Christmas season really gets into full swing, you'll see more. It might have to do with the economy and people are just not in the "spirit" yet? I don't know but don't give up and keep crafting! :)

Yes I agreee with everyone, don't give up on crafting just because of our lousy fair. It might have just been an off day. I wonder how hard it is to get set up on Etsy? I bet you could make lots of money over there?

It was great to see you yesterday! Don't give up, though! Your things were soooo cute so don't let your first craft fair get you down!

Angie's idea about Etsy might be worth thinking about too...you could reach out to an even larger audience.

Have a great rest of the weekend!
