After 3 furious weeks getting ready to sell my wares, it’s all over.
I’m thankful for the opportunity to practice packing, set-up, etc. and did manage to sell a few pieces. Mama-san even got to purchase her three favorite (and my most-expensive!) pieces.
Here is how my display ended up:
I ended up spray-painting the remnants of a leaning-desk and raised up the two smaller ones in the back. I covered cardboard with grey fleece and used straight-pins to display my extra-long necklaces. Earrings were hung from handmade holders made from ‘clay’ and wire; I say “clay” because it was actually this awful foamy substance that was almost too light to hold up anything and didn’t dry stiff, allowing the wires to shift and things to look wonky. Oh well, lesson learned!
I’d love to work another one after the New Year, now that I’ve got everything ready. Here’s to hoping I’ll find a mellow craft fair after the holiday madness!
