Christmas Craft Show

Christmas Craft show At Grandview High School was a success despite the blundering weather outside ... aka SNOW. It certainly exceeded my expectations of when I awoke to the snow that was falling from the sky.  People still came out to shop!  It was wonderful! Here's a few shots of my booth! Talking with everyone face to face was such a joy!  I really love the interaction with customers as being an online seller, you just don't have many opportunities to do that.  Talking to people and listening to their thoughts and ideas was so refreshing!  It makes what I do all that much more rewarding.  Seeing their excitement when they find that PERFECT item for someone or for themselves is … [Read more...]

Tutorial Tuesday ~ Make an EASY and CUTE Paper Plate Sign

A Cheap and EASY Craft Show Sign So, with pretty much anything in my life, I did my craft show booth on a budget.  This great opportunity just kind of presented itself suddenly and I needed a way to make it work without spending a lot of money.  I knew how I wanted it to look ...

Craft Show at the Jazz Fest on 2nd Ave

...was a SUCCESS!!! What a turn out! WHOA! Okay, so I have to admit I had never heard of the town of Niwot, CO and had to Google Earth it to locate before accepting the invitation to attend.  I am so glad I went!  This place was PACKED!  The promoters of this Jazz Fest certainly knew what they were doing!  There were well over 2,000 people there, I'm sure!  We had a great time and met lots of locals!

Getting Ready for a Craft Show – with the help of Craigslist

Anything can be possible when you're resourceful and check with Craigslist.  Perhaps we are just lucky here in the Denver metro area with our Craigslist activity as I find so much for free or for next to very little cost like this $25 dining room hutch. I was asked to attend the Jazz on 2nd Festival in Niwot to sell my wares.  Not planning on selling at any shows during the summer, I wasn't, let's say, prepared.

I've been trying to think of how I'm going to set up my booth so it's not just a lonely looking table.  I want it to be interesting and inviting and colorful.  However, I … [Read more...]
