First Craft Fair=HUGE success!!

As of today I have officially completed my first craft fair experience!!

{Sigh of relief} :)

 After many long hours spent cutting out felt, hot gluing, and watching Netflix, I was pleasantly surprised when I sold out of a few different things early on. This truly was a learning experience and looking back, I would have made more owls and earrings!

Throughout the day we were able to handout about 100 of our business cards as well as gain interest from several local boutiques. Never in a million year did I think our items would be such a hit! In fact, if you had asked me my goals before the day started I would have told you, "I just want to sell at least 5 items". Little did I know...

Today made me realize I really need an Etsy shop. I can't tell you how many times I was asked today if I had one...who knew so many people outside of the crafting world even knew what Etsy was!??! I hope to have my Etsy shop up and running with several items by the end of the week.

 I just wanted to say one final THANK YOU to all of you who came out and supported us at Earth Day! You truly are amazing! And for those of you who couldn't make it out, but were there in spirit I thank you for all your kind words of encouragement!

Now here is a little glimpse of my day...

Setting up...

I captured us making a few sales when it wasn't too crazy...

A the end of the day we were tired but trying to have a little fun...

Checking out the streets around us...

Time to get some rest. Signing off until Wednesday! Hope you had a FABULOUS Weekend!


  1. Congrats! It looks like so much fun and makes me really wish I was doing fun stuff like this (or lived in a real city and could)! Yay for a great experience!

  2. You need an Etsy shop JUST so I can get my hands on one of those owls! Not because anyone in my life is of the stuffed animal possessing age, but because, I, in my adulthood, NEED one!

  3. I agree with Jessie. I NEED one of those owls! You have so many very, very cute things. I think your Etsy shop will do very well. I am so glad that the fair went well for you. I can't wait to buy something from your shop! :D

  4. That's so awesome! Congrats on the success! I wish we had a craft fair around here! And I definitely agree with Kara and Jessie... you need an ETSY shop!
