Pictures of my booth.
These aren't the greatest pictures. I meant to take the camera today to get more, and I forgot. There's actually another dress hanging on the top bar that you can't see because the walls were black and it doesn't show up. I really had the best location of the whole show.
I have a few people who say they want me to make things for them. One lady wants a coat for her daughter. Another pregnant lady took my card and said that once her baby is born she will bring me some of her family's heirloom things to make into a dress. A set of grandparents are waiting to see if their daughter is having a boy or girl and then they plan to call me.
You know, I really don't know if these folks will ever call or not, but lots of people took my cards and flyers, and who knows?
I learned alot about what to do and not to do when participating in a show like this.
One, I should have had extra lighting.
Two, I really should have had a few things I was actually selling instead of just taking orders (but that would require making a bunch of stuff I really don't want to make or have time to make). Three, I should have bought better hangers. I got these because they were skinny and white and would blend into the shelves that I was hanging them on.
Four, I should have had bigger tablecloths.
Five, I shouldn't have gone to the other artists' booths. I bought stuff!!!
There are more things I learned but my brain is too tired to think of them now.
