This past weekend was the *big* craft fair. The fair is a big fundraiser for the Air Force Bases' Spouses' Group. I think the did well.
Oh- The quilts in the photo are not mine. Those are from my mom, over at Karen's Quilting Service. How cute is that airplane quilt?! As of Saturday at 4p, it was still available, if you're thinking it'd make a GREAT Christmas gift.
I had a TON of stuff out at the craft fair. I brought my entire Etsy inventory. Honestly, it all fits in a rubbermaid (not the military purses), but once its out and displayed, it takes up quite a bit of room. I had two tables and two hanging bars.
I had clothes and purses on the hanger, fabric scraps in the basket, fabric by the yard on the table next to my patterns and SEAMINGLY ACCURATE, then aprons & stroller blankets and lastly I had my uniform purses. Wow.
I did make my sales goal, so that was good. I also was right about my hunch- with this being a USAF town, and the first 3 bags I photo'd for you were USArmy. In fact, I've added those 3 bags into my shop, just today. If you're looking for an ACU bag, please surf on over to my shop. Let me know, when you check out, and I can get it wrapped for Christmas for you.
It was a pretty good weekend. I do think the fair was great for generating local business. It was quite nice to meet TONS of ladies (and a few guys) from the community. Nice to meet'cha!
Do your part to help out the economy and shop shop shop! Have a great day! I'll be adding 4 more Cubes (with green BDU fabric) into the inventory sometime this week, so do check back. ~jen~
