My first arts & craft fair yesterday was unfortunately interrupted by the weather, intense gusts of wind that threatened to topple over my entire display. Also, it was unseasonably cold for Albuquerque in May.
However, I did it! I learned so much about how to prepare and what to expect. I made a few sales, too. I met other vendors and make some good connections. I need to practice setting up the table and display – I didn’t anticipate the amount of time it would take.
I’ve had fun gathering my display items together – I found a few pieces at yard sales, one at a discount store, and I gathered the branches from a local park. I’ve been enjoying looking at objects in a different way and imagining how I can repurpose them. I absolutely love the dish that I used to show off my rings:
While it was disappointing to have the fair end so abruptly, I’m really grateful to now have a solid inventory of jewelry. It’s been good for me to get into the rhythm of creating. I’m looking forward to future craft fairs – and hopefully, if they’re outside, the weather will cooperate.
