Craft Fair Crazy

This year I did my first round of craft fairs here in Colorado. A ton of fun and got to meet a bunch of new people. I was in my 'workshop for about 2 week prior to the craft fairs just getting ready. I would say the turn out at the craft fairs this year was not as good as others, but still I met a lot of great people. Here are just some of the items I had on my table.

Of course I had a bunch of cards, a staple for any papercrafters table. I thought I had a great variety but it seems that handmade cards aren't in 'fashion' anymore.

Alteralbe items were made, including Picture frames and Shadowboxes. With funky colors and a great price, I was sad they didn't sell.

Here is what did sell, Purse Books, a little notepad with matching pen. Also coil notebooks sold, looks like people are big writers in Colorado. There were also a great variety of 'Clippy Boards' were there and they didn't sell very much either.

Last but not least, I made some quick Gift tags and stuck them all over this tree. Thanks to my Cricut this idea went really fast and also looked beautiful. However being on the tree, I think customers were scared to touch them...wish they had. I also made a bunch of gift card holders for the ever popular gift cards...we had a good response for those. All in all, it was well worth it...even just to meet new people. I look forward to next year and all the new items I can create!
