This year my little town hosted their 1st Annual Fall Festival, where they offered local home-based vendors FREE booth space! I had never had my own booth before but couldn't resist this opportunity.
Since I don't have a fancy cutting machine like the Silhouette or Cricut, my friend helped me cut the letters with her Cricut for my Shabby Threads sign.
I had an array of bibs to choose from as well as coasters, pin cushions, quirky dolls, and a few other miscellaneous items.
It was pretty cold and super windy both days of the festival, so traffic was pretty light. Even though I didn't sell as much as I thought I might, I had an awesome first experience manning my own booth. I shared a table with my mom, and we had a lot of laughs sitting together.
I've signed up to do it again in the Spring, and I already can't wait. It's so fun to get out there and display my creations and meet the other vendors. I got some sweet compliments from strangers and even had a few people take my business card.
I learned a lot and can't wait to do it again!
