November MAAD 2010 Post-Mortem

Yes, another MAAD has come and gone. Nothing exciting happened. It was ANOTHER long weekend which means Saturday was relatively quiet.

The red floor where I sell was packed with sellers though. I think it was full house.

The most exciting thing I did on Saturday to kill the long hours was read Twisted by Jeffery Deaver. I have not been this engrossed in a book since I was a child. It was a collection of short stories - all with twisted endings.
This is Janet, co-owner of White Cottage. She was my first customer! Her White Cottage table is behind her. Do you see her Blythe? She sells felt accessories. She also has very interesting outfits. I wish I had taken a pic of her on Sunday!

My sales was so-so. I sold a total of 3 bags and 6 pouches. Interestingly, my fabric covered button hair elastic became a hot item again. I'm very low on stock now. Must make more!

Remember the last bag I made on Friday? My houses crossbody bag became a celebrity. Many people stopped to look at it. It went to June! I wanted to ask to take a photo of her but I don't know why I chickened out. Anyway, I feel so yay! It's really fantastic when you make a bag and it sells quickly.

My 2 dear friends came to visit me. So happy and relaxed.

Jon came bearing gifts. Can you guess what he brought? It's something I use for my bags. I'll show you in my next post. I have another craft market on 20th November. So I guess I'll be making a few more bags. In my next post, I'll show you all the goodies I've received these few weeks. So come back, won't you?

I've put that book on my "to-read" list, thanks for the suggestion, it made me want to read it.

Some sales are better than none, good luck at the next event! So happy you get to sell things that you enjoy making.
