No Coast Craft O Rama Update



No Coast has come and gone. Almost with the blink of an eye. I spent many a late night working feverishly for this show printing, cutting out, scoring, and folding, and clipping, and on and on! The show began Friday afternoon and into the night and then all day Saturday. Friday brought out quite a bit of traffic which was great. Saturday, was not so great. There was a wicked snow storm that started right as the show did and did not let up all day! Barely anyone was left during the last few hours! I am seriously mad at all the weathermen who told all the watchers not to leave their house!!

I came out rather short of my goal. But honestly, who expects to bring home $900 after their first craft show! Maybe if it wasn't a blizzard I would have. Maybe not. Now on to the next show!

Pictures above are of my display. I had a bit of trouble with the shelves at first but my fiance found a wonderful solution. And since I was too lazy to go and have a sign professionally done I made a collage of a design I made! Not too shabby :)

ps- That is my mom creepin around the corner in the second photo! What a great helper!!!

I did my first craft show this summer and it went really crappy but it wasnt the right show for my items. I have done one since but I hope to soon. Once I can get some nice inventory.
You display looks awesome! Nice job!
