Chalk It Up as Experience

Mom and I participated as vendors at an After Thanksgiving Sale yesterday! Let's just say that we're chalking the whole thing up as experience. :o) The 'sale' was NOT heavily advertised, the location was a bit shoddy, and thus the foot traffic was VERY minimal. We had several other vendors comment that it's the worst show they've ever participated in!

BUT...we now have experience.

The customers that did stop by were all so wonderful and gave us great feedback. I really loved being able to interact with them in person (as I stated to a local news channel that stopped by). Face to face transactions are so much more fun!

Another great thing about the sale was how much we learned from seeing the other booths/displays. We took away a lot of ideas about tablecloths/fabric, having varied heights, etc. Everyone was so helpful with their feedback!

Here are a few pictures that I took of our booth:

It was fun and exciting to be a part of something like that, even though the promoter didn't do much promoting. Hopefully we'll have more customers at the Farmers Market in the spring. Maybe we'll even pick up some sales in our Etsy shopsfrom folks who grabbed our cards!
