renegade craft fair wrap!

after paying allison back for the registration fee and the cost of renting tables, i made a total of one dollar. oh well. i tried hard. here i am, optimistic at the start of the day. i'm not complaining. i can look forward to future craft fairs all being better than this time 'round.



you can see a few more photos here!

there were so many awesome vendors there, but i was frugal. i did i end up buying a zombie monkey for dan from funkstart, a 'greg jr. by jenny harada, and a kangaroo patch from wonderland q. my favorite booth was miss alison's. she makes some of my favorite crafts. i had bought a clutch from her at depart-ment last winter and she's expanded her stock to include these awesome accordian wallets! check out her stuff at her newly updated site.

also, last night we finished watching 'firefly', so we are now ready to tackle 'serenity'.

hah! :) thanks janice. as soon as i have the proper bags for the friendship cards (mine were too small), if you'd like to carry them at copacetique, let me know. i made a new version from the prototype i had sent out to the sampler and i think they are super cute, but i'm kind of biased.

D'oh!

I totally goofed and forgot to add you to the right filter (I reorg'd everything)...sorry about that! No wonder you weren't popping up in my list...I just figured you weren't posting...

That little administrative snafu out of the way, lemme just say that I wish I'd known you were gonna be at the craft fair!! I totally woulda stopped by for a hello and bought some stuff from you! Actually, that seems to have been my main purpose this weekend...to do my part to help friends break even. lol.

Anyway, looks like you had a ton of fun. I'm going to shoot for next year, myself...

Fingers crossed that Serenity rocks...

well, you know you have my sympathy on the unfruitful craft fair front.
may I suggest using my cheap attention-getting methods?
1. freaky sign (old board + meticulously cut-out inkjet printed letters + bright craft paint = 'I think I'm cute and I bet you will too!'
2. candy on the table (oh, I never stop at the cheap shots). Chocolate = mood lifter = hopefully open wallets
3. goofy outfit (I favor several shades of the same color/same color, different patterns)
4. free things like stickers, or homemade grab bags (oh, put anything in there, like stuff you found on the street), or xeroxed postcards

yeah, i totally need to do promo materials for the next one. i do believe i'm going to put some stuff up on etsy to start getting exposure before applying for another craft fair. i did have candy out. i was rushing to get stock made, so i didn't have time to make a sign. yep, i really do feel like that would have helped get people in. yep, i also feel you on the sticker front.

It looks like fun! Congrats on breaking even, anyway.

Do not go see the movie without me!
