    Post Craft Fair Items

    I have a booth at the annual Christmas Craft Fair for the Festival of Lights in Natchitoches. I have belts and matching bows, bibs and burp cloths, table runners, and lots of small items. I'm thinking of organizing the tables so that there's one with infant and children's, one with teen/adult items, and one with just Christmas themed items.

    What do you think? I'd really appreciate any ideas or comments you can give that might help out.

    Sounds like a very nice plan. You have some lovely items there. I wish you well at your craft fair. Thanks for sharing.
    Desiderata (Max Ehrmann) - Walk placidly amid the noise and haste and remember what peace there may be in silence. As far as possible without surrender be on good terms with all persons. Speak your truth quietly and clearly; and listen to others, even the dull and the ignorant; they too have their story. Avoid loud and aggressive persons, they are vexations to the spirit.

    I think your way/thoughts of seperating is the right way to go. People looking for specific sizes will appreciate the seperation, plus your inventory won't get mixed up.

    I like the idea of arranging things according to the intended user. It would make things simpler for customers to concentrate on a particular subject. But I think they will find something at every table to interest them. You have a great selection of items! They are all well-made and have nice details on them. Good luck!

    That is a good idea to keep them separated. Some people are only interested in baby items...some aren't shopping for babies at all. It's easier on the shoppers to find what they are looking for. I wish you the best of luck at your craft show!!!
    enjoy your life...it's the only one you have!!!

    Very pretty items!
    It may be a good idea to separate these, that way it is easier to see the wide variety of items you have
