My Very First Craftshow

First of all I want to say Thank you Angie!

Angie and I had a craftshow yesterday, and I have to say it was a wonderful day. I was up earrrly yesterday morning. Earlier than I wanted to be 4:30 am. I guess I was just excited. We had a chilly start, but around lunch time it started to warm up quite a bit. Other than fighting the wind and kids we had a really great day.

Here is Josh my son, Kailey Angie's daughter and the little girl is Angie's niece. Josh was having a plate of ribbon chips with ranch dressing. Josh and Kailey stayed for a little while and I think for the most part they had a good time. Lots of old cars to see and things to do. Oh, and there were lots of things Josh wanted to buy too. Money, money. But they had fun.

The show we did was the 17th annual Street Festival in Reidsville North Carolina and the people really came out for the festival. I dont know how many vendors they had this year, but you could find just about anything you wanted. The day was filled with music and smells of popcorn and food cookin all around. We were just down from a guy that cooked chicken all day. And boy did it smeeelllll goooood. It was a wonderful Fall day.

Here is a picture of our booth. I couldn't get the pictures right for the sun, but I think we had a great lookin booth. Everyone that came by talked about how heavenly it smelled. About how they could smell the cinnamon. We had alot of folks come through the booth, but not many were buying. But that's ok, we had a wonderful day of meetin new people and chatting with folks.

I think our little booth was just sooo cozy. We worked hard for this show and I think we did really good. I saw alot of old friends from high school, teachers and new friends. My friend Angie from the CYO forum came up from Gibsonville to see us and we just had a great time. It's funny when you meet people in forums and online then you meet them in person and they just how you thought they would be. Angie is great and she is a great crafter as well. I so enjoyed meeting and talkin with her.

I think next year Angie and myself may upgrade to a larger booth. We still had somethings in the boxes because we were limited on space. I know Angie will post this as well. I hope she got better pics than I did. So be sure to check out Angie at the Sugarplum Patch blog

So that was my day. It was wonderful and I had soooo much fun. Thank you again Angie.

Have a great day!

I'm really glad to hear your first craft show went so well. Hopefully on the next one, people will be more inclined to shop. Blame it on the economy. Your booth looked very cozy by the way. Prim Blessings,

I dont know if you have seen this or not, but there is gonna be a conference in Burnsville, NC myself and a few other girls are getting the funds together now. I will get the link added to my blog soon. Might be something you both would like to do.
