Final Craft Fair

Today is the final craft fair for the season for me. It’s been a great 2016 craft fair season. Now to sell the goodies I have left over to replenish stock for next year. 

I do have plenty of the custom signs available to sell if interested. Great, easy personalized gifts that I even ship. Signs cost $35, plus shopping if applicable. They are sized at 11″ x 14″ Email me for more details or to place an order! 

Day 1 of December

So I survived my first craft fair this weekend. It was quite the experience let me tell you. I met quite a few great people, some amazing entrepreneurs & many interesting folks who were shopping. My next fair is next week and I’m pretty excited to see what it holds out for me. And if nothing else, it was new experience I’ve always wanted to try. And I did it! And survived. Next event though more bottled water. I spoke so much I had a dry mouth when I woke up the next day!
