As any or you know who have looked at my postings for the past month or so I attended my first craft show last Saturday. This was a local event at a mission location of my Church. Seemed to be a safe place to start and it helped a cause the I well support.
Overall I think I did fairly well. On of the first rules of craft shows is to recover the amount of your booth space. I did that in the first hour. Secondly is to sell some product and I well did that. Thirdly is to gauge the quality of your product against what customers are looking for. Mostly visitors told be that like the things I had displayed and thought is was really nice looking. Forth, is to gauge the price of your items. Are they to high or to low and I think I hit both of those marks. A hard on to judge in scrollsaw work. Number five is the selection of product that you may have brought. Yes, next year I will have the selection different. More of this and less of that. And lastly, number six, would I do it over again. In a heart beat. Watching people really treasure what you have made was the real fun of it all.
One last thing, a special helper showed up to spend some time in my booth. My granddaughter came (with mom and dad of course) and I had a name badge ready for her. So she was my helper for about an hour and that was a real special treat. She likeed it so well that she had to bring her name badge to Church on Sunday, fixed onto the strap of her purse. That was special.
