Craft Show and new bags

Last weekend I did another dud of a craft show. I kind of had a feeling that it wasn't going to be a good once since there wasn't any communication from the organizer about set up. I ended up contacting them to find out if they were providing tables and what time to show up.

The event was in a hotel, turned out not in a nice conference room, that was being used by a coin and stamp convention, but down and to the right and then make a left and then over there behind the pool area (inside still).  Which, maybe would have been ok if they had some HUGE clear signs that showed people that entered the hotel that there was something going on way down yonder but there wasn't. Plus there was only 3 other vendors, one of which was an author.

I did manage to make $35 thanks to someone that got lost trying to find the bathroom, one of the other vendors and someone else that came through. It was so bad the organizer refunded us our booth space and I bailed out early at 1:30 so I could go to my friends house and go swimming with the family lol.

Plus it was HOT. Pool plus sky lights plus swam cooler and 100 degree weather equals sauna.

I think this place was probably pretty groovy in the 70's. All the rooms have curtains so you could open them up and see into the court yard area. I envisioned a disco party going on there lol.

My 2 6' tables that they neglected to tell me were actually only a foot or so wide. That fun trying to figure out my display

A lot of the windows at the top were open. I think that probably doesn't make the air conditioner function very well.

Anyhow, I didn't feel bad at all about bailing early. I had a great time at my friends with my family!

Here are a bunch of new bags I made before the show, I still have them all since there was like 10 people that actually walked through the area. For sale for $10 each if anyone is interested. I might eventually put some in my Etsy shop if I have time. I need to find another show to sign up for. My newest rule is not inside of a hotel. Added to "not inside a restaurant" and "not too far away from the road". It's all a learning experience!

And for some reason it turned most of my pictures sideways.

This is a pencil bag, selling them for $5 (have a few)

I have a few more of the make up bags cut out that I didn't finish sewing up. Once I get those done I'm going to find something else to make :)
