A Wonderful Show

I have decided to only do local shows, ones I can drive to and from with no overnight stays. So I am entering some shows that I have never heard of before. I was in one Friday and Saturday that was new to me. The shows organizers were wonderful. The show ran very smoothly. It was Christmas in Central Park in Cumming, Ga. There were 2 rooms of vendors with very a nice variety of wares. I was the only fiber artist there, I think. I did very well, best show of this year. I taught so many new people about felting, I even picked up enough people to have a class. I meet lots of really nice people who keep telling others about my booth and I totally sold out of felted soap the first day. People came back asking about it the next day. I handed out lots of cards and hope to get some orders. Best part of the day was at the end of the show. The person who ran the show, came to my booth and awarded me a blue ribbon for best in show! I was so surprised, I think I just stood there with my mouth open. What a much needed ego boost! Thanks to everyone at the show or involved with the show.

Libby, I am so excited for you! And your booth was lovely, and your wares beautiful! Way to go!!!

Congrats! I find I do better at smaller shows, too. Maybe it is the nature of hand-made fiber items. I think it takes a little time with each customer to do a little education and that time is hard to come by when there is a ton of traffic. Very happy for you.

I'm so pleased for you, Libby! Maybe being one of a kind in a show works better than being one of a number of fiber artists?
