Bummer!

laurastheme(8)November 10, 2012

I'm so bummed out1 I have items in a big craft show this weekend. It started Thurs. and ends Sunday. So far I've sold one item! Can you believe that? The first year I participated I did really good. The second year I did OK. This year I'll be lucky if I make my $75 entry fee. I have a lot of cake/dessert pedestals, but also glass flowers that hang on a wall or fence, bird baths and garden totems.

Oh Laura, I'm so sorry! That's a lot of work to not make any money.

Well, I have a lot of items to list on etsy. They'll sell there. I just thought I could make a lot of sales in a short time.

That happens alot - don't let it bother you . I did 2 craft fairs that I did'nt make my booth fee on .... it's disappointing for sure. Lots of things could have happened , but it's not your stuff ! It's gorgeous !
