Craft Sale!

So my mother and I set up our little table at the craft fair this past weekend.  And we didn't do terribly!  I sold $125 worth of needlecrafts, and Mom got about $89 from her little plant starts.

The center of our space.  I sold the mermaid box, the little "Cozy" plaque (next to the red box), and all the tooth fairy pillows.

This seemed to be the prime selling spot - the large box, the little jade plant, and 2 of the jars (the butterfly and the one with the blue flowers) all sold.

Mom's plants (we ended up with another table here, making the plant space wider).

Here, the long box with the Ink Circles vine sold (it is actually the same box as the mermaid one, but it was priced $5 less - I based most of my prices on size, but the mermaid was more because as my artist friend said, "don't forget to charge a little for emotional investment - get more for the ones you really love").  And it is hard to see, but there is a little chipboard box up next to my sign in the back - that sold, too.

There were 17 vendors there, and it was in the middle of a field at a rural nature center, so it wasn't incredibly busy.  There was a live band for a few hours, and a couple food trucks for snacks.  I spent a little money myself - because who doesn't need some homemade goat's milk body lotion with the name "Monkey Farts"? - and we had a good time.  Many thanks to my dad for helping us set up our tables and awning, so we weren't baking in the sun!

Now I can't stop making little boxes, in hopes of trying this again...
