It came and went in the blink of an eye.

The first ever – Vienna Grade School Craft Fair was this past Saturday.  I wasn’t as prepared as I wanted to be.  I think it was a little too much procrastination!  But, thanks tot he help of a great friend, I was able to have some stuff on the tables ready to sell…


This was the booth set-up.  Seems a little sparse… but I am still adding items for display and for sale.

Here are some up close pictures of the displays…

Was it a success?  I think it was.  Sure, I only sold 7 cards… but I got my name out to people.  I had a great time getting to know some of the other vendors – making connections and picking up tips…

Traffic was a little slow.  I’m not sure if they have any idea of how many people came through…  a few hundred I think…  most of the passer-bys stopped in and looked around.  I learned a few things that I need to do for next time… And, yes there will be a next time!

Speaking of next time…  It is coming sooner than I thought.  I will be signing up for a booth at the Vienna Junque Jamboree on April 15th.  Then, I am already signed up for the Annual Duck Race on May 7th.

There is so much to learn about doing craft fairs… I can’t wait to become an expert!  It’s going to take a lot of time and patience and connections!

And, there was a little discussion about an Etsy store… so many that is something that will come in the future.  Honestly, I am more interested about teaching others how to create their own cards than selling those that I make.  But, I alsolike to do that.  So, I guess I am a little up in the air about what to focus on.

What do you think I should do?

Until next time… keep it simple, Stampers!

🙂  Joanne
