As you may recall I had a show last weekend. Was it a roaring, sell out, crowded booth success? No. Did I make new friends, contacts, meet loads of people, get a few custom orders and sell some items. YES! I went into the show not really knowing what to expect. It is only my second show, and my first multi-day outdoor, non-church, show. Does that matter? I would like to say yes. For starters, doing a show that is multi-day is an undertaking. Having no idea going into it how sales will be I had to prepare for business, and pray for it as well. I didn't go overboard, although I did stay up later than I should have ahem, more than one night that week. I was confident in the variety I was bringing from fabrics to item offerings and price ranges available.
I did sell a number of items, a lot, no. A large handful, yes. (I am not sure that I should mention that my two biggest sales were to people I know!) I also hand out innumerable business cards, and talked to almost as many people about custom orders from bags, to pillowcases and key fobs. I received a lot of good feed back from those who bought, and those who did not. Overall, I am happy with how it all went. I could spend forever criticizing myself for things, but instead I will accept what it was, and move forward.
With regards to those that stopped by to see me...THANK YOU! I really need to express a special thanks to a few particular faces.
I don't have my next show scheduled, but I am working on it. I have a few good leads on shows that I gained from those I worked with and met last week, and am looking forward to pursuing those.
Thank you again for all of your support and I look forward to seeing you soon!
