A Redirection of Priorities

Okay, so like the last time I was here I was pretty damn frustrated. But since then, thanks to the kind words from my friends, I am redirecting myself -again!

There are three craft shows still open for the Christmas season. The big one is The Christmas Carousel in Raleigh. A 3-day event that will wear me to the bone but hubby says go for it. And so, the planning begins.

I've got to get pictures done of a display. What? A display?!? Oh no! Oh my! I've got to get a table, and the table cover and skirts, and the hardest thing is I want a shelf along the backside of the table. I've got a mirror, and necklace displays out the wazoo.

12 days and counting until the cutoff to sign up. Can I do it? Yes, I can! (uh, I think so) (just HAD to throw in a little Bob humor in there.) lol!

It's going to be crazy! I hope,....I will,.... alot of things. But the only thing I can worry about right now is getting that display picture done and that I don't run out of pieces. Can't leave early, you won't be invited back and if I run out what will I do then? So, lesee, I've got about 140 pieces now. I'm going to shoot for 200.

If you have done this before, please comment what you felt sold the most: necklaces, bracelets, earrings, other. I'd really appreciate it.


  1. I have not done this before, it was my plan but then the Army moved us, so plans changed. I know the planning involved, and just want to wish you all the luck in the world! Go get 'em!

  2. Necklaces and bracelets sell well. Some years I do well with earrings too but last year, earrings didn't go as well. It could be a cyclic thing. As locales vary, this will be a test year for you to see what sells well in your area. Don't do too many of a certain type of design though. Also watch for positive reactions to particular designs even if they don't buy. Your sales and observations will help you decide what to concentrate on next time.
