My show was a huge success! I was super busy the entire time and I never even got to take a look at the other exhibitors. I was so impressed with how the show was run and the over all quality. This was the first time this show has been put on and I hope it will continue. Good Job Cindy! We were suppose to start at 10am but I had people at my booth by a little after 9am. By 11:30 I had already sold out of the little ring bowls I had made. Next time I'll need twice as many! My stock is totally depleted so I'm going to need to work extra hard to be ready for the next show. I found one in Iowa City that will be the first weekend of December. I think I will try to get into that one if I can. They are taking applications until October 10th. We will see what happens. Here are a couple pics of my booth and my OOAK Necklaces in my garage before the show. I was so busy that I didn't get any other pictures. I was pretty happy with how my display turned out, need to fix the gaping hole that my table cover makes in the front, but over all pretty good!

Show and Tell

My show is this weekend! I think I'm almost ready, I still have a few more things I want to finish up. I've set my booth up in the garage and while it sure isn't the booth of my dreams I think it will work for now. Especially considering that it was almost free! Talk about using found objects! We already had some tables from church but I wanted to raise them up a bit. I was going to go to Menard's to get some PVC pipe to use as leg extensions but then I started digging around the garage and found that the people who lived in the house before us had left a PERFECT pipe just for me!! I also wanted to add some levels to my display so I started looking around the house for anything that I could use. My square waste basket? Perfect! I spray painted it black and I think it should do the job. Next table coverings. This I did buy, I found 2 king sized black flat sheets on clearance at WalMart. Again not perfect but they will do the job. They actually look pretty nice and they are long enough even with the table leg extensions. Finally I needed something more. I pulled out some old matchstick bamboo blinds and cut them in half and made super cool table runners! I'll post some pictures after the show as I would be quite embarrassed to have my messy garage in my photo!
Here are some pics of some of the other things I'll have at the show.
