Craft Fair Photos!

On Saturday, I participated in my first craft fair, and it was a success. Of course, I have some things I can improve next time, but overall it was a great experience. I took items from both of my shops, but earrings were by far my best sellers. The day was scorching hot... until a rain shower came in. Fortunately I was able to cover my table, and the rain stopped after about ten minutes. I even made a sell during the storm to a little girl who spotted some earrings she likes earlier! The rain did cool everything off for a short time. Next time, I hope to have some sort of covering over my booth... either a tent or umbrella.

Here are a couple of photos from the event...

I used shutters to hold my earrings. That was a tip I got when I was preparing for the show, and it worked out great!

Aren't they super cute? The designer and creator, La Toya, has loved fashion since she was little. She now has two degrees in fashion, so she definitely knows what she's doing.
