I had a table at the spring craft show at the farmers market in Vinton Va this past Saturday. Here are some pics. Keep in mind that I’m still perfecting my displays and table setup. 🙂
This was the handmade half of the table. The keychain spinner rack is just off to the left…somehow I missed getting it into the pic!
A closeup on some of the handmade items. The blankets and dishcloths were made by my mother. I had a clearance basket filled with items that I’ve discontinued or have changed the design of. Ignore the tape gun; it wasn’t there after setup!
My barrette and hair clip display. It was breezy that day, so some of them were twisting side to side on the ribbons! :O
This is the vintage half of the table. I love finding old needlepoint and cross stitch pictures at estate and yard sales, then cleaning them up and framing them nicely. The bigger ones were on top of the table, while the smaller ones were displayed on a metal rack in front of the table.
I had my Square reader ready to go! 🙂
Now here’s the plot twist…after all that work, I did terribly. I sold literally nothing. NOTHING! My mother made $3 on some dish cloths, but I made $0. *sad trombone noise* It wasn’t just me, though…traffic was super slow, and some of the crafters packed up and left way early.
Oh well. This was a tiny show at a small farmers market so I’m trying not to get discouraged. I’ll keep an eye out for bigger, better shows were I might have more success!
