The weekend went pretty fast, and with ugly weather. The rain never stopped.
The craft show is over with, and we did okay. I have also sold the blanket yarn I have in stock (what I had left), that I used only for the water balloons. I have emptied a few totes thankfully. However, like my husband said, no one has money right now. Most of what was sold, was very low priced items.
The cost to participate with a 10 x 10 foot area, was a whopping $45.00 this year. It will be marked as the very last craft show for us. It was a dreary, rainy day, and not many people went out, plus there were a ton of other area craft shows going on during the same day. So many people, who told me they were coming to the show, never even showed up.
I gifted hats to a few of the kids, and packed up displays to put up for sale at a later date.
A local lady, who ordered 6 knitted dishcloths picked them up at the show. She was thrilled to get them. She said craft shows are not "craft" shows anymore. She is right. There are so many other vendors using cricut machines to sell shirts/mugs/bags, pampered chef, Tupperware, and the like. There were about 4 booths with crochet work there.
Now the abandoned, unfinished projects will resume. There is much to work on yet around here.
