    Success at the craft show

    I was in a Christmas craft show & sold almost everything! 6 small quilts, 1 big quilt, several table runners & toppers, purses, wall hangings & some other stuff. I had so much fun. This was my 2nd year of doing this. And I met lots of fellow quilters. Going to do it again next year, too. This is a picture of me in my booth.

    What a nice booth debbie. I love the whole look of it. No wonder you did so well, I sure would have been in that booth looking at all of the pretty things too.

    Very nice looking display. I'm so glad you were so successful. Craft shows has been a flop around here for several years. People either want something for nothing or just want to steal an idea.

    You have a lovely inventory. Happy you did so well. This was my first year to do a craft show. Was very happy with the results also.

    Yes I agree your work looks great and you did a great job with your display. I am also doing my first craft show in December and have some wallhangings, candlemats, table runners, ornaments, bags, wallets and other items. I am excited but getting nervous at the same time. I am afraiding of overpricing and more afraid of underpricing. I am getting my price ranges from etsy and ebay. Can I ask how much you charged for your tote bags and small quilts? I made some mini bow tucks totes and it looks like you had the same bag. You can inbox me if you'd like. Any tips and tricks would be appreciated. Many thanks and happy you had a successful show. Great to see fellow crafters do well.
