Handcrafter's Boutique

Saturday I did the Handcrafter's Boutique in Manteca again. This is the most organized craft show I have done. The gal the runs it does a great job. BUT when it's supposed to rain they get it mixed up a bit. Which of COURSE it had rain in the forecast. So I got there and they said I could pick a spot with a stick and a number, bring back the stick. I pick a spot then go get my stuff, go back and someone else is setting up there. WTF. So then go pick another spot. So this was my first time being in a row instead of on the end but it was still ok. I should have set up my cozies on the long row instead of the short one. I did sell quite a few key fobs and tissue holders though lol. Several bags too.

I like the white tent a lot better, it measures the same size but it is bigger.  I think maybe because the other legs were more slanted? Someday I'll actually make some tablecloths that look nicer. I keep meaning to do it then forget or get too busy. 

I ended up taking one strip of elastic off the mug cozies so they'd be easier for people to look through. I got a lot of compliments from people on my boards. Must have been people that also had their stuff fly off  the tables! 

The morning was super busy. I was wishing I had one of my girls there to help but then it was lunch time and it slowed down (and the girls showed up lol) and at 2 it started to rain and pretty much died down except for a couple sales. 

My next show I've signed up for is back by the movie theater April 14th. Hopefully it won't be windy or rain!

Your tent is so colorful that if I were there I would be drawn to your area!
Great job Julie.
