Last Craft Show of the Year

We spent this past weekend at a Christmas craft show in Aiken, SC. It is a two-day, indoor show at the Odell Weeks Center in town. Lori and I enjoyed meeting other crafters and talking about our plans for the new year. It was a bit slow sales wise, but still a nice weekend.

Our booth space was open on two sides, so we set up a bit differently. The sides were not as tall as usual and we split the framework so people could walk through from one side to the other. One of the things we've learned from doing a few craft shows is that you never know before you get there exactly what your space will be like. Always be ready to adjust.

I don't have any more shows scheduled until spring, so I'm going to enjoy my holidays and work on building up inventory in the Etsy shop. And bake Christmas cookies.


  1. Cute cute both! I would have stopped and shopped!

  2. Your stuff is too cute! I am hoping once my store gets enough stock that I can start doing craft shows as well to get the word out. You did a very good job of keeping the space busy without being overwhelming.

    Do you have a separate stock for these shows or do you put the shop on "vacation" while you are out?

  3. I like how you set up your booth! An inside show would be great to attend. Have fun creating more stock for your Etsy shop!

  4. Love the booth! I've been missing craft show so much but maybe I'm not going to have one until Jan 2012 too.


  5. Nice set up! Have a great break :)
