Craft Show Wrap-Up

It's been almost a week since the craft fair and I have not made one thing since! I have however been spending Zelda's naps cleaning up the house, which went to shit in crafting crunch time. I had fun, but I am thinking my craft show career may be over for awhile. I didn't make nearly as much sales as I would have liked and it is really hard to bring Zelda with us. She is a bad napper to begin with and Jon could only get her to take two 45 minute naps! She wasn't grumpy, she was actually very well behaved the whole time, but she'll start crawling soon. Also, I still haven't managed to get her to take a bottle so she goes where I go.

I didn't take nearly as many photos as I should have. I only have one of my booth to show you. Jon and I did come up with some good ideas on how to spice up the booth for the next time we do a craft show. And I chatted a bunch with the seller next to me, Jessell of She is Crafting My Doom. She's from So Cal and we commiserated about living in Florida. And after talking to my sister in SF, Florida is maybe not as behind the times as I thought, but confirmed that - yes, the 80's are back. So many sweatshirts with the neck and arms cut off, a see threw lace top with only a bra on underneath and neon colors. It makes me feel old. I just can't get behind bringing the 80's back.

So in conclusion, I have a lot of stuff that I have already started listing on my etsy page. And for reading my blog you get 10% off everything (shipping not discounted)! Use coupon code BLOGGER at checkout.

Zelda is manning the booth.


  1. Things I love:

    All of your stuff
    Especially Henrietta the owl
    The fact that Zelda and Jon have the same haircut

  2. I'm with ya - there's no way the stuff I STILL own from my childhood is now vintage.

    It was such a nice surprise to meet you and have someone to bitch about FL with - thanks for making the day entertaining!
