It's been a long time since I've posted here! Wow!
I had my first experience with a Holiday Boutique/Craft show today. It was in a local church and it was a success! I was really concerned that I wouldn't have enough product available, but I was fine. I learned that some things need to be priced a tad lower next time. I also learned that I need to brush up on my sales skills. My daughter was a life saver...she has the gift of gab! She was drawing people to my table in droves! She received so many complements for her sales skills...and I got them for my painting skills! What a rewarding day!
Next time I will have more Southwest items available. The few I had went the first day. I also plan to reserve 2 tables next time. One for the ceramics and one for the purses. I think I'm going to stick to 2 styles of purses just for simplicity sake. Oh...and I'll have some small items available for $1.00 each. The vendor across the walkway from me had a basket of $1.00 items and they went like hotcakes (snack size Ziploc baggies with tea bag "cozies"). I think people just like to feel they got a good deal!! :) I figure if they cost very little and take little time to put together, then why not!!
I'm looking forward to next year. I plan to do more than just one show!
