My First Craft Show

Overall, I would consider it a success. I made some sales,  got some lovely feedback, and learned a lot!  And it was fun... a lot of work, but fun.


This is my table, which I was pretty pleased with for my first try. I would say that almost all of the things I used for display, were things I borrowed from my craft room.  


Here is my necklace display, along with with my subway art monogram.  Dolly loaned out her mirror for the day, thanks Dolly! 


I dressed up the Christmas tree with decorative tags that held earrings and washer wreaths.  It was a big draw--people really loved the way it looked.  I put chocolates, business cards, and little muslin flower clips in some candy dishes I had in my stash. 


This is the inside page of my guest book. It was simple to make, I just jazzed up a plain composition notebook with scrapbook paper.  The wonderful stamp is from The Graphics Fairy. 
It went perfectly with the paper I used, which had vintage looking postcards all over it.


I will share more soon.  I am currently looking for my next show, but I will be taking a breather for a couple of weeks.  Thanks again for all of your wonderful wishes and support, they meant the world to me!

  9. Christine, congratulations! I'm so glad your first craft show was a success (although I'm not a bit surprised). Your booth looked fantastic -- of course, I'm partial to that subway art monogram with all the Pokemon and Star Wars on it. Love the way you set up your guest book too!
