    Default Moving on from the 10 years of craft shows

    Today my wife and I set up our first booth in a vendor shop in the town of Breaux Bridge, home of the world famous crawfish festival.
    The booth is quite small but the owner opens ever day, so it’s like a craftshow 25 days of the month with me having to be there every day.
    This will give me a chance to get special order request from my web site.
    This is big step for us.

    I have often wondered why it is that
    Conservatives are called the "right" and Liberals are called the "left".
    "The heart of the wise inclines to the right, but the heart of
    the fool to the left."

    Sounds like you are about to get a lot busier. I've never been able to make that step of commitment, just couldn't make myself take the risk or commit to the time. With all the work you have shared here you have the experience to provide whatever the customers want.
    Good Luck, Rick H

    Impressive collection of project samples. Sounds like a plan where as you get known, people will know where to find you when they need something they saw in your shop. A QR Code for phones should give them a quick way to save your info.

    Good Luck,

    yes this could become very hectic, The craft shows, I spaced them out 5 to 6 weeks apart giving me time to redo my inventory or do special orders.
    I would do 4 or 5 shows in the spring and another 4 to 5 in the fall. I did fine myself busy sometimes btwn shows, summer would give my a break.
    I just finish 2 lithos for a person who found my business card after a year from one of the shows.

    And you only have to set one time and just replenish the stock as it is sold. Good luck on your new venue.

    I love the idea of having a permanent display set up like that (it looks great)! I'm sure you'll do very well, Perry!

    I was informed today, I had my first sale, a wooden yard flag, and wasn’t even there, this could be good.

    Always good to make sales without being there. Wishing you luck in your new venue
