Hello Readers. Did everyone have a good weekend? I did a craft fair this weekend- by myself! The first time in about 5 or 6 years. I met a gal who owned a little gift/craft shop when I approached her one day to see if she wanted to carry any of my crafts in her shop. She agreed enthusiastically and had me bring stuff in right away! That was the beginning of a beautiful friendship, lol. Eventually, I ended up working in her shop, and we started doing the fairs together during the holiday seasons. This has been going on for a long time now. Well, she and her husband recently closed the gift shop and sold their home in town and moved out to their cabin about an hour from town. She is really a little too busy right now to handle a full fair schedule, so we only booked a couple shows together this year and I am left on my own to do any of the others that I want to do. I have to admit that it felt pretty strange to go and set up my display-just my stuff. I was actually worried that I would have a bare or boring looking table! NOT! lol I had plenty of product and ended up with a very attractive display (sorry Joni, of course I forgot my camera! ). I am going to try real hard to remember it this next weekend. Sales were pretty good, especially since it turned out to be a sale where the church ladies also had a bake sale and white elephant sale going at the same time, which we all know is not condusive to good craft selling. I have a sale this next weekend at one of the local schools...and those are usually really good ones! Yeah! I have pictured here one of my newest bagkeepers...this one with a darling little Sunbonnet Sue taking her little kitty for a stroll. I did it up in red, white, and blue--so fresh and pretty! I just went to list it in my Etsy shop, but the site is acting up a bit tonight so I will give it a shot in the morning. Pop on in tomorrow and have a look around...there are some new items that I've listed...some new ornaments and stuff. Bye!
