Here is a list of things I did not like about the show.
We had to buy a carpet because it was “mandatory” (why you ask? I have absolutely no idea. The floor was concrete) and then come to find out that maybe 40 percent of the vendors did not have said carpets…
We registered for a booth closer to the front but apparently they didn’t get our registration… So when we didn’t get our vendor package we called and asked about it they told us they didn’t get the registration but the got the money and they never cared to see where that mysterious money came from. So we got the second to last booth to the end because ours had been reserved later.
They had these hideous red and white curtains for the back drop. Sooo sick.
It smelled like horse crap until the guy selling roasted nuts started mixing up a batch.
They played the same song like 50 times and each time the CD skipped at the exact same part. You would think they would learn. Actually… you would think they’d be past CDs…
We were under the impression that this was a craft fair. But it wasn’t. It was a commercial made product fair with some crafts… A lot of the other handmade vendors were pretty upset about this. One lady was particularly mad to the point that she did crazy things and yelled while customers walked by. She was insane…
We were also under the impression that tons of people were coming. Not that many people came.
It was cold in there.
90% of the stage performers were bad.
We didn’t do that bad. We got back what we paid for the booth and then some.
We met some really nice craft vendors. Who said that this was a crappy show and that they normally are not that slow.
We had fun decorating and manning our booth.
A bunch of our friends came by and saw us! Thanks everyone!
We got to try some incredible dip. I went back to this guy maybe 10 times.
We gave out a ton of business cards.
People were in love with our stuff.
The guys in the booth next to us were so weird… but incredibly funny.
This little 5 year old boy did a performance. He played the drums and sang at the same time. 5 YEARS OLD! He was so precious. He had the sweetest little voice.
We will never do that craft show again… but we are looking forward to doing another one in the not very near future. Right now we are going to focus on our Etsy shop.
Bellow are some photos from our booth!
We love our business cards.
Thanks to Jana (book wreaths) and Melinda (Ornaments & Knitted Bows) for letting us sell some of your lovely handmade things things!
