Hey there.. Here is my show all set up for yesterday..I was so worried that I wouldn't have enough stuff and was cramming like crazy..and I am so glad that I didn't make any dolls cause none of them would have sold...Last night in my opinion was a HUGE disappointment to say the least...especially when I have had no life for the past 2 months working non-stop to get stuff made for this show to hardly sell anything..there were alot of people that came to this event only wanting the "FREE" stuff..it was a waste of time, money and effort and I will not be doing this one again...The little Ziggy halloween Dolly above sold right off the bat..and I was hoping for the rest of the show to be a hit..
I did want you all to see my displays and all that I had made for this show..only a few fabric pumpkins sold no luminarie, the big felted pumpkin on the bottom with the witch sold and one on the next shelf up did too..
I had a fellow blogger come and see me and she snatched up my little black pumpkin doll hanging above my witch doll..Thanks again Shirley..she spied it on a few posts back..needless to say she got a few extra surprises to go with it...
here all all my candle mats and pillow tucks and purses and would you believe NOT ONE SOLD...they all loved them of course but only wanted to know how I dyed my mats..I only sold one pair of my earrings..
I sold a couple of my room/linen sprays and gave away a couple of them to my good customers..Now I have to cart this stuff all back upstairs and wait till the next show..won't have to do as much for my next show..cause of all that is left over..will make a few christmas dolls and some christmas pillow tucks..might make some jackets as some seen my jacket that I had last night and loved them..so will see..it was so flipping hot in this building last night..so didn't wear it..I am exhausted and don't want to look at another craft for a couple of days..I am going to have a giveaway cause I got a lot..just need to go through it all and decide what I want to give away..but it will be good..will do it hopefully tomorrow as I will be going through it tonight when hubby gets home and we can put it all away....folks were not thinking about the upcoming holidays and shopping for gifts or decorating...If I sound disappointed I am!! I make great quality items in my opinion and thought my prices were TOTALLY reasonable and they were only after the free stuff and the giveaways...well at least I know now to not do these kind of shows as it is only going to be looky loos after the free stuff..now I need to find another show to do between my christmas show to try to unload it all..I am off to eat my breakfast and catch up on all my T.V. shows that I have DVR'D...have a great weekend all..:)
IF ANYONE IS UP TO DOING A SWAP LET ME KNOW..:)
