Guess what guys! I survived my first craft fair! This event was actually considered a "Vendor Day" (at Weed Orchards & Winery in Marlboro, NY), and I was there with a booth of handmade items for sale. I had so much fun prepping for this, making holiday decor items and crocheting little baby hats and booties. It was an awesome feeling to get feedback from visitors and I almost couldn't get over the fact that people seemed to really like my stuff! It was a wonderful feeling. I met some really great people, many of them local to the upstate area. I've attended many different types of fairs and markets, and it was really interesting to be on the other side of the table this time...
Everything was handmade which felt great, Nick even helped me make those awesome little wood slice ornaments which I then painted and strung. This really got me in the mood to start decorating for Christmas, so of course I kept some ornaments for our own tree at home.
I think my favorite selling items were the baby booties. It was pretty neat to have customers tell me that they were a gift for their sister, or friend who was due in the months to come. One woman bought a pair to bring to a baby shower later that day. It really warmed my heart to think of the tiny toes that would be snuggling down in those little booties.
All in all it was a day that left me feeling really happy, despite the absolutely frigid temps (we actually had a heavy snow flurry at one point!). We sipped many cups of their delicious hot apple cider, and the freshly made donuts didn't hurt either.
I want to say a big 'thank you' to those of you that came out and showed your support. A huge thank you also to Nick and my Mama, they stuck it out with me all day in that freezing cold. That's love right there! I have to say that this is something I'd definitely consider doing again in the future. In the meantime, I'm dreaming a bit of opening an online shop. What do you think?
