(Here's my little booth in all it's glory!)
I did a dry run of my set up a few nights before and realized I needed the blocks and then did my final dry run the night before the event.
I thought I'd spend most of my time prior to Donald Daze creating stuff for my booth. Nope, I spent about half the time figuring out the set up and working on displays for the booth. LOL! I decided on an aqua and white color scheme. I know, huge surprise there, huh? ;)
I dug out my aqua spray paint and some old baskets and an old peg board of my grandfather's and got to work!
(A couple of containers snagged from my scrap room and the afore mentioned baskets.)
(Channeling my inner Preschool teacher.)
For my custom options sign, I used my Slice! I love that thing!
(Hmmm, methinks I should iron the sheets next time. Heh!)
And finally, the other side of my booth, the name frames. I did these one year for Christmas and they were a huge hit! I also painted up these cute little vintage school chairs.
The weather was a lot nicer than what the weatherman had been saying but there still weren't a lot of people there. So, no one really had a great day sales wise. But, one gal who took my card on Saturday, called on Monday and ordered a photo necklace and when she picked it up asked if I wanted to start selling them at the salon she's going to open. Yay!!!
My mom did say that I should look at it more as an advertising event than anything else. Looks like mom really does know best! :D
Thanks for stopping by!
