Legion Post Craft Fair

This weekend I participated in the Oak Creek Legion Post 434 Arts and Crafts Fair. I had a nice-sized booth tucked away in a corner but it still made everyone who came in have to pass by my booth to get anywhere else within the room. I think the location brought me more business than I anticipated.

This craft fair is relatively small and the advertising budget is limited so I knew we might not get much traffic. I lowered my expectations. Amazingly, I did pretty well. I sold some tote bags, aprons, and table runners. I usually sell burp cloths and flannel baby blankets but not this time. You just never can predict.

I was happy that I could help out our legion auxiliary by participating even though I am not all that fond of working shows anymore. I love making crafts and I do enjoy meeting people and talking with them at the fairs but I rack up a lot of pain from being there. Since my spine surgeries, I'm just not capable of sitting/standing for the 6 hours required to be there. Luckily my daughter comes to give me a break.

I am so happy that my inventory is getting lower and lower!
