I know it's Monday, but today I am taking the day off! Well, except for the morning dentist appointment I had, but I actually enjoy the dentist so it's kind of like an event to me :)
Yesterday was my final craft show of the spring/summer season & since I worked my tail off all week & weekend long...today is my holiday.
Strawberry Swing was a first year craft show in the Kansas City area that I was SO thrilled to be a part of! And for a first year show, I really do think it was quite the hit!
The fair took place in the Alexander Major's barn, a really cool historic site right in the city!
|love the bunting flag sign|
|my booth was in the barn which means thankfully, I had plenty of A/C!|
|the set up. It changed only slightly this time...with purses hanging from rope rather than from my screen door.|
|with Ben unable to come with me, I needed a light weight solution for hanging my bags...I think it turned out very cute!|
Ok, so the best part of the fair was having one of my bestest friends in the whole wide world & her family SURPRISE me at the fair! I haven't seen them in 6 months & they just moved to the area (yaaay!!!) I was so thrilled to have them there & to have them keep me company for awhile. This is she, with me & along with her she brought her fantastic husband (also a great friend, who brought me coffee!) and her sweet son & mother!
Definitely the highlight of my day!
The show was definitely worth it & was a nice successful ending to my first summer season of craft shows. I have a few months to re-cooperate before the fall/winter ones begin! One new thing for me at this show was my ability to take credit card payments! It definitely helped bring in at least 1/3 of my sales...totally worth it.
I used Square, which can be hooked up to an iPhone, Android or iPad & transacted payments with one easy swipe!
That's all for now...I was planning to list some new wristlets today, but I think that will have to wait until tomorrow.
