Craft Sale




Yesterday I had a table at a craft sale at a local church. I've been preparing for this for 2 months! I had a lot of fun, I was there from 6 to 3. It was outdoors, and it was supposed to rain! We were all praying it wouldn't rain, and it didn't! It DID sprinkle, but only for a few minutes. It went pretty well, I made about $225 profit, but I didn't sell any of my purses that I worked so hard on. It was a nice setup, Each table was a parking space long. There was a bake sale, plant sale, silent auction, and also a live auction after the sale. (I didn't stay for the live auction) I had 2 very nice ladies on either side of me, one sold beaded jewelry, and the other painted glass panels. I gave out 42 business cards. I had ordered some online, but they hadn't come yet, so I spent hours Friday night making and printing some, then cutting them out. They looked alright, but not wonderful. I was thinking during the sale, wouldn't it be funny if they were in the mail waiting once I got home? Well, I got home and checked the mail, and sure enough, they were. It wasn't as funny as I thought. They do look good though. They put the group cloth in a basket with a few other things in the silent auction, and it brought $15! It makes me feel like it was worthwhile.
