November 2014 Craft Show

The first craft show that I took part in for this holiday season was a few weeks ago and what a nice location it was at! Some of the other vendors we met were so incredibly nice and such talented crafters!!


Not sure how I would have gotten along though without my fun-loving, charming husband!  He really should be in sales, he is a good salesman, a natural at heart!  Plus he allowed me to dress him up in a silly Christmas tie AND a headband with bouncing around snowmen!


Here's my booth with my primitive creations displayed that were up for sale.  Unfortunately "Prim" is not big here in Idaho....most people are like 'huh?'.  I actually have a sign up describing what "Primitive" means. A lot of the comments were, "how creative", "What unique creations".....I think a 'nice' way of saying 'something'.....lol!
 




So I only made a few sales, but that is ok.  We met  a lot  of nice people and of course I did some shopping myself!  Here are some of my new creations that were up for sale. (wow.....I JUST realized I spelled the word "Believe" WRONG on my elf hat! LOL! no wonder no one bought it!  I'll be changing that tonight! LOL...what a moron I am!)






So my 2nd craft show for the season is tomorrow.  Tonight is set-up.....I think I'll only get about an hours worth done tonight because this location is further from our home.  Hopefully tomorrow's sales will be better considering Christmas is only 12 days away!

I'm so Square............

So I recently purchased a Square Reader from Staples.  Certainly a 'yay' for me as they were having some kind of deal and I paid $7 and some change for it.....and when you register it, Square puts $10 into your account.



So I'm going to use it a my first 'official' public craft show.....I've participated in my past job's on site holiday craft show and one a few years ago for products my hubby was selling at a sub-division craft show....but that's it.

Hubby and I set up tonight at the location for the craft show which takes place tomorrow.  I'm super excited and so lucky and blessed my hubby is helping me!  He built me this awesome wooden stand with chicken wire so I can hang some of my product from it.  I will take pictures tomorrow when we are there.



So hope the Square helps with the processing of sales.  I'm sure a lot of people bring cash and their checkbooks, but I know I'm always relieved when I'm at a craft show to find out a vendor I want to purchase from takes credit cards.  It's so much easier all around I think.

So have you used the Square?  What do you think of it?

Another Craft Show for me!

I have signed on to do another craft show!  I'm very excited to finally be branching out into this arena! This one I feel very blessed to contribute my time to as it is not only a "Holiday Bazaar" where you can get great Christmas gifts, but it is a fundraiser also.

If you are in the Boise area, please attend on Saturday, December 13th.....thanks!

Today is Halloween.......

Once again I was late putting out decorations......I got the outside of the house decorated with Halloween/Autumn items 2 weekends ago.  I love decorating the inside too, but was lazy about it.....I think I was the same way last year! grrrrr........I am disappointed in myself because I just LOVE my primitive, grubby, tattered-looking Halloween decorations!  Oh well, gives me something to look forward to for next year I guess.....They will be almost like 'new' items!  Ya know when you don't see them for a couple of years and open the storage boxes and say 'oh wow!  I forgot about this!' or 'I love this, how cool!'.........always exciting!  :)

Everyone have a wonderful Halloween!!

Have you un-boxed any old Halloween decos that you were excited at 'discovering' once more?

How about any new purchases?
