My First Time Being a Vendor

So I know a while back, I went on and on and on about a show I was going to be a vendor at. I was super excited and was hoping that I would actually be able to sell some of my things. But then I never mentioned it again. And here's why...the show was a bust. I put a lot of effort into preparing for the show since it was my first, but it was all for noght. The way they advertised to sellers and buyers was completey different. To sellers, it was advertised as a craft fair, but to buyers it was advertised as a yard sale. I was literally sitting next to four guys who looked like they had emptied their closets of old clothes and shoes. Here's where this becomes a problem. They (and many other folks) were selling things for .50 or $1.00. My items retail for $3 - $20. When you advertise something to buyers as a yard sale they are expecting bargin basement prices. So unfortunetly, no one stopped by my table or looked at what I had :( But I have taken it all in stride. Check out the pics below that show my booth and some cards I created for the show.

Cute booth. I do craft shows with my mom. Check out some websites with craft show ratings on them. We do a couple here and Fl and they are wonderful.

cute booth! Bummer that they poorly told you what the event actually was! Chalk it up with experience I guess. Good luck on others! Keep trying...it gets better :D
