i haven’t posted in awhile (not that i’m much of a regular around here), because i have been working feverishly to get ready for my first craft show at a local church.
i spent the first two weeks preparing samples, narrowing down my product list, taking photos, developing pricing, and ordering fabric & supplies. then i spent three weeks stocking my booth with my creations. and then came the real fun: setting up the booth!!! mom & dad came to town for moral support (and to babysit), and mom helped tag all 150 items. the day before the show, lorien came over and we did a “dress rehearsal” of the booth (and as usual, she’s the photographer):
i wanted to go all out & do some gorgeous displays… i’m so proud of the way it turned out.
thank you, lorien, for supplying most of the furniture & display pieces. all of The Denny Family stuff is packed up while our house is on the market.
the morning of the bazaar, bff4eva lorien, super-supportive hubby brian, and i arrived at the church at around 6am (dark:30), and got to work recreating the booth. it was damp and cold, but by 10am we were getting kinda toasty in the south carolina autumn sunshine.
i had pretty good sales, met some new people, took custom orders, and really enjoyed the day.
the hip kids tees were a huge hit, but there are plenty of good leftovers on my brand new etsy site. i sold a few of these pretty ladies:
all-in-all, it was a tremendous amount of work, a huge sacrifice made by my family, and i would do it all over again in a heartbeat. thank you to all of you who came out in support, and the family & friends who worked behind the scenes (renee & lorien, you rock!)… i couldn’t have done it without you!!!
until next time…
