And one more craft show down! We had a great time at Sheridan Celebrates. The weather was warm, the people were friendly and the event was crowded!
I enjoyed this parade more than any of the others this year. Sheridan really feels like a small town in the middle of the city, and the whole spirit of the event was just good.
We were right next to the steel drum band, in a row of other like-minded-crafters. We took everyone’s advice to heart (more on that later), and I sat right out in front of our booth. I talked to A TON of people. Probably more people then I talk to in a month of regular life.
Men, boys, dudes, guys…whatever you want to call them, they seem to be fascinated by the spinning wheel. They always stop to stare at it. Perhaps it’s a mechanics thing? 🙂
Maybe it wasn’t the spinning wheel that they were so interested in!!! ( just sayin’)
You know, that occurred to me. But even in the picture, they seem to be looking at the wheel, not me!
We went to a craft fare last Saturday and both commented on how hard work it looked! The weather was fine, which made the day. Looking forward to hearing about your responses as you go along. What worked and what didn’t work. What sold the most etc.
Yes, the weather is probably the single most important thing to making a craft fair go well, and the one thing we have the least control over. All of our days have been almost hot! I could wish for just a bit of crispness to encourage folks to buy warm scarves and hats 🙂
So far, beads are the biggest, most obvious seller. Yarn with beads, scarves with beads…anything that sparkles really seems to just sell.
