You could, in all honesty, get all of your Christmas shopping done in one place. The quality and quantitiy was amazing. That having been said, it was not a good show for most of the vendors. Roughly 3,000 people attended. I sold 11 bags. Yes, ELEVEN! That's it. I had a lot of people take my card and ask if I did custom orders (certainly!) but only 11 are not returning to Pennsylvania. Thankfully, I am fairly certain that the balance of my inventory will sell before Christmas so I am not totally freaked out. I am very disappointed however. I chalk this up to being a good learning experience (and I DID learn a lot!) My dear son, Chad, is setting up a real website for me and also doing some really cool video stuff. I will see what kind of interest that generates and go from there. I am very serious about this becoming a business with a viable income generated.
So, this morning we are loading up the car, adding a grandchild and her stuff and heading home. The rest of my family arrives on Wednesday night. I am not going near a sewing machine until next Sunday. I will probably be a little twitchy for a few days!!
