After the Fair

Well, the Craft Fair got off to a slow start but picked up around lunch time. Some people looked at my bags and walked on; some came back and looked again and a few bought! I only sold five bags; at least I paid for my table! The bags I thought would sell, based on the fact that they were similar to some I have orders for (like the toiletry sets) didn't sell. Oh well, they will be on the next Craft Fair on 1 December.

I wonder if doing Craft Fairs is worth it; I prefer making bags to order. I know the customer will get what they want and I enjoy the challenge of searching for fabric and adapting patterns to suit a person's wishes. Maybe this community just isn't into bags!? The retired gentleman at the table next to mine was selling wooden items he makes. He seemed to do a good deal of business, especially door wedges with cute little mice on them. Mmmm - maybe I should try my hand at something different? I don't think so.

Right now I'm tired, having worked last night and will do so again tonight and tomorrow night. I certainly didn't make enough money yesterday to retire just yet!
