A Craft Fair

Hi!! Sister Lori here! I did a craft fair recently and was hoping to earn some good money. I was a little unsure of the venue and had not done one in quite a while. My prices were good, however it was not well attended. I am scheduled for another in a few weeks, so hopefully it will be better, and my inventory is up, so I don't need to make much more. Here is an overview of our table. I shared it with a friend who makes beautiful beaded bracelets and earrings. She did pretty well!!!!

              I made these cards which had a cocoa packet inside along with a choc. mint stirring stick.

Here we have altered clothespins, I glued pretty scrapbook papers on the front and there is a tiny strong magnet on the back. Underneath are post it note pad books with a mini pen attached, great for your purse.

These are snowmen ornaments, made with a battery operated tea light, so simple and easy, aren't they cute!!!! Also some key fobs, super easy to make, the hardware I found on Etsy and most all my ideas were from Pinterest, gotta love it!!!!

Inside these note books are a half of a junior-sized legal pad, I used a lot of my beautiful scrapbook papers from Close To My Heart, The stamping and scrapbooking company I am a Consultant for.

These are adjustable button rings I made. I have collected lots of vintage buttons over the years, most I glued another pretty in the middle of the button, Love them!!!!

Here we have calendars, I made 2 different styles, one an easel that stands and the other is on a coaster with a magnet on back for refrigerator or file cabinet or?????

These are file clips, small or large, that I covered with papers and added some ribbon. They can hold a recipe card on your counter or a photo. Also, not shown are some pretty file folders that I altered and they open up to hold a junior legal pad, like a small notebook.

                Here are my friends beautiful beaded bracelets and earrings, she does great work!!!

Thanks for looking!!!!!!

You worked so hard, Lori - and all of your items are wonderful. You have some seriously great stocking stuffers there, and I hope everyone at the next craft fair goes on a buying frenzy in your booth!
Maybe some of our readers would even be interested in your gift offerings?

Fun items! What great gifts they would make. I've been in a number of craft shows too. Very hard to know what will sell. Better luck on the next one!
