Craft Fair Season 2012: Show 1 (Nov 10)

Well the first Craft Fair of the season has come and gone, and let me just say, after paying for the table, everything I sold and everything I bought, I made a profit of $5 lol  It's not my fault!  I'm a SUCKER for sweets and handmade goodness!  But lesson learned:  I will NOT buy anything at the next one.  Don't laugh!

Moving on...

Here's a shot of our display:

My partner in crime!  My sister Leigh-Anne & I, shenanigans ensued as always lol:


And as luck would have it, sitting next to me was THIS sexy bitch!   You might recognize her as Brigitte from Bricolage de Brigitte.

I bought this card from her, I fell in love with it!!  I'm going to frame it though, I'm not giving it away to someone lol  But seriously, go check out her blog, she's pretty amazing!

Here are some shots of the items I was selling.  I have to apologize for the lack of staging for these pics.  I shot them last minute as I was packing up to leave, so they were just kind of thrown on my desk and snapped... very unprofessional, I know lol

First up:  These are card & coaster sets I made at Carousel Rubber Stamps.  I haven't done anything with them yet, but I love them all.  I made the decision that I would try to sell them at the craft fairs and if they didn't sell then they are destined to have a spot in my house lol

Floral Sets
House Mouse Christmas Sets

Christmas Flower Sets

Next up are my tag sets.  I LOVE these!  They were fiddly to make, but I LOVE the end result!

Snowman Soup! 

Wishlist Kits!

Pencil & Candy Sets!

Charms!  I made some of these last year, and on a whim I decided to try to sell them, and they sold FAST.  I decided to make some more this year :)

I also had out some leftover tags from last year, and I had 2 boxes of my 'old stock' cards that I'd like to sell off so I can start fresh in the New Year. 

All in all I had a FANTASTIC time!  There was a pancake breakfast, lots of great things for sale and, of course, amazing conversation!  I'm keeping my fingers crossed that we'll all be sitting next to each other again next year.  Next sale is this coming Saturday, so I'll try to remember to take pictures there too.  Have a great week, peeps!!
