Yesterday's Show

Sure glad the show is over.  It was damp, windy and chilly with temps not even quite touching 60 degrees ~ but, at least it didn't rain as it had the night before.  I did see sprinkles on my windshield as I was driving there at 6 a.m. to set up and hoped it would at least let me get my canopy up before a full fledged rain happened.  Luckily when I pulled into the show lot there was no rain and had none during the day.

The show was about $50 in sales down from last year and I heard the same scenario about low sales from the other vendors with whom I spoke.  Since the economy is poor and people concerned about jobs guess they are careful with the spending.

Much to my surprise no one purchased either the Candy Corn Cats or the Pumpkins on candlesticks. 

But did sell the cute hooked piece with the cat in a shoe which is a design of NotForgottenFarm, one of the witches and a few other items. 

Also sold a couple dolls and a few small odds and ends as people were buying the 'smalls' (as we call them), which are in the $10 to $15 range.   Thank goodness that was the last show for the year for me. 


  1. Hi Saundra, Your booth looked great. I wish we had cold weather.
    Have a relaxing Sunday.Cheri

  2. Wow! What a fantastic looking booth! $50 down doesn't sound too bad considering the economy. Your things are just great! Take some time and rest up now....... you certainly deserve it!!

  3. Saundra,

    Love seeing your booth set up. I can pick out a couple of things I would have bought but the cost of gas to get there from here makes it not such a good deal.

    I have noticed I am not going to as many craft fairs this year as I have in the past. Party because of my housing situation, the rest because of the unknowns being retired on just disability and my state pension which our governor wants to take more out of it.

    How is the dog bonding going? My other Corgi got his neutering stitches out today. He is staying with my sister in the country until I get moved out of here. It is too small for even two Corgis and Miss Dottie has first dibs.


  4. Saundra ~ you should have sold everything! It was all so cute!! Your witches are darling and so are the candy corn dolls!!! It's just a hard time right now ~ we have to remember that nothing we have is a necessity ~ darn it!! I sold a couple of finished pieces at my last show but mostly rug hooking supplies!! Have a blog sale!!!

  5. Saundra ~
    Thanks for the pictures of your booth. Everything looks amazing. You have so many talents! I'm glad you were down just a bit from last year and thankfully even though cold it did not rain! Now that your shows are over, you can get lots of hooking done!
    Pug hugs :)
