Jen and I decided a few months ago that we would try setting up a booth at a local craft fair, The Gill Arts and Crafts Festival. Progress was a bit slow in the beginning, but over the last few weeks we have been in overdrive getting ready for our big debut weekend. I can't believe it's already here! I'm excited and nervous. I know that we have created some beautiful items, but will people buy them? Will our personal tastes translate to what potential buyers like? We have both been working like crazy to take care of all of the details of getting our tent (thanks Matt and Melanie for the loaner), putting together a display, and having enough inventory to not look bare, but not too much out at once so that it looks messy. We're very hopeful that the people in charge assign us a spot directly next to Stacy and her Quinn Bags booth.
Our focus was originally on baby items, but as so many projects do, we've morphed into a few other areas as well. We will definitely have baby quilts, bibs and changing pads, but we've also added wooden signs, magnets, cards and vinyl crafts. My pictures aren't great, but here's a few of our favorite items that will be for sale.
If you're local, we'd love to see you there! It is supposed to be a beautiful weekend and the Festival features lots of great local artisans plus great food. It's a win no matter how you look at it.
