This time I was closer to the other end of the row. There was an empty space next to me so I was able to do a corner set up.
This area is relatively busy all day. There is the movie theater but there is also a conference center right at the end of the street that has various things going on each weekend. This time it was a home and garden show. I sold about the same amount as I had done the last time I was there. I will be going back soon!
This last Sunday I did an event at the American Legion Hall. This was put on by the same gal that does most of the events I sign up for. They had been saying how wonderful this event was, everyone did so well, she had asked me to come do it.
I got there and was like OMG this place is soooo small. Almost claustrophobic. I had 2 tables that they provided and it was inside so that part was nice but man, so tiny. I could only put the tables like parallel or one against the wall and that way I would have been sitting in front of my stuff.
If I was in my booth I had to get up and walk out so people could see what I had.
The people across from me barely had room for their chairs.
And it was DEAD. I made back my booth fee and like $13 more. (And spent $10 on lunch that Jessica brought me). Some people didn't sell ANYTHING.
I was surprised they didn't have any food available for sale since there was a little kitchen. That was a missed opportunity for sure. Most people selling were there by themselves (no room for an extra person lol) so that makes it difficult to get something to eat. I was lucky that Jess brought me food.
I don't think I'll do this venue again unless it's close to a holiday or something else is going on in the downtown Manteca area.
I don't have anything scheduled for this weekend which is good since I need to work on making some more stuff for my upcoming events :) I like to always have some new stock!
