Crafty Minions VIII. How it went.

Yesterday was my first craft show at Crafty Minions (Aqua Books), and anywhere else for that matter. All in all it was a good experience for me as a first timer. I didn't quite make my table fee (so close though!), but I was warned that this would be a slow show since it was spring and Aqua was supposed to have moved to it's other building by now. Also by participating in this show, I now have a greater chance of getting in for the future (more busy) shows.

I was at a table in between Ruth from Periwinklw Dzyns and Deb from Hoshii Designs. So I had some other Westies to chat with during day. This was also Deb's first show. There were also several other Westies there too, and it was a good chance to meet them and put the Etsy shop to a real face.
I'm not discouraged that the show was not a huge "success" because actually for me it really was a good experience. A lot of the "unknown" is gone - I've figured out a table set up, I've seen what it takes, and now I can say I've done a show. Also I did sell somethings, a few RFID card sleeves, so that was encouraging. I also got a couple of books sewn.

Now I will be much more prepared and confident for our WEST sale in October, and will aim to do some more of the bigger sales next year.
