Craft Show/Fundraiser on April 14th, 2012

I had a great time at the craft show/fundraiser at Studio Twenty today in the Fonthill plaza.

I was really looking forward to having another show under my belt, knowing how to set up, and to see what other vendors are doing. I made a couple of sales which is great, and I got many ideas to improve my business and show display.

Ideas:
-better table set up, more 3 dimensional, different height displays and more inventory
-set up a display board to show before/during/after making pieces so customers can really see what’s involved in making hand crafted jewellery -Thanks Carol Berkhout-Bosse, it was great to meet you today 🙂
-make sure my table cloth isn’t wrinkly, lol

Thank you so much to my friends who came to visit to support me. You have no idea how nice it was to see a familiar face, I was very nervous as this was my second show, having my friends pop in made me less nervous and feel more confident. I really appreciate it. For my friends that couldn’t make it out, you were there in spirit for sure 🙂

Thanks to Krysta for organizing, thanks to Kalie from Bella Vita spa.

Oh and, we had our picture taken and should be in the Welland Tribune this Friday, woo-hoo 🙂

I am now focusing on prepping for my next show on June 3rd, in Harold Black Park (Haist St.). I want to have a lot of inventory (unique one of kind pieces).

I will be looking for new ideas to be inspired by, most likely out in nature on walks with Spring blooms and active wildlife.

Visit often to see new pieces and to get show updates 🙂
