I did it, you guys! I registered for my first market.
This is a big step for me.
A huge, enormous, gigantic step, actually.
Apparently, the human brain can’t differentiate between anxiety and excitement, and it’s the same physical and emotional response for either. So let’s just say I’m REALLY EXCITED about this new direction.
OH BOY, am I ever excited.
I get one table. 6ft long, with power for up to 5 plugs.
Probably overkill on the power but I’d rather have too much available and not use it, than not have it and want it when I’m there.
I’ve been pinning all sorts of craft display ideas and packaging ideas on my Pinterest account and continually add projects to my husband the woodworker’s honey-do list.
I have a new floor length, fitted black tablecloth.
I have 800 business cards. One design is mostly black which I discovered doesn’t hold up well so I ordered 500 new cards in white.
I have 96 matching (black)custom stickers! I may order more with the new white design.
I figured out my boxes and bags situation, now I am working on the tags and embellishments to make them stand out. I think I will make up about 30 bags beforehand and bring supplies to whip up more if sales are fantastic and I need more.
I have a square card reader. YAY!
note to self: I need to test it before the big day.
and most importantly, I have some stuff to put on the table! YAY!
I’m bringing predominantly copper electroformed necklaces and RINGS, RINGS, RINGS because I just love making rings. I am also considering bringing several pairs of earrings and keychains for small ticket items.
Stay tuned, I’ll update with my progress.
UPDATE: The show I was referring to was cancelled, so I am doing a much, much larger two day show instead! See my Upcoming Craft Shows page for details.
