Yesterday was the holiday bazaar/craft show in which I participated. It was well-attended, and I sold some stuff. Yeah! It was pretty cool, too! I have mentioned in previous posts that I have very little confidence and experience with sales and marketing; consequently, I was feeling quite unsure of myself in this venture. As it turns out I did a pretty good job of having ample merchandise; I went into the day with a positive attitude; all in all, I had a fun day.
I sold all the kitchen towels there on the corner of the table. I sold several of the fabric post cards. From about a year and a half ago I had a couple dozen chap stick holders, so I put those out and sold every single one of them. That surprised me. A few of the mug mats sold, but I expected they'd go better.
It's just really hard to know what is going to sell. No quilts, but I had some definite interest. Those people took my card, so maybe there will be a sale in the future. None of the pillows sold, which I 'd sorta' thought they would appeal.
Now that the bazaar is over, I will direct my attention to the t-shirt quilt I need to be finishing. It will hopefully go to the quilter on Tuesday.
This next week will have some fun sewing days. On Tuesday, Terry is having the girls in for a day of stitching and on Wednesday, we have our annual Veterans' Day sewing at Sherrie's. FUN!! I would love to start a new project, and I have several options swirling around in my head. Stay tuned.
Happy Quilting, Friends!
