Craft Show Wrap Up and Display Ideas

So, I'm quite exhausted. The craft show was a lot of work and well, frankly, not worth it. I did make some money, but only made one third of what I made last year. Crowds were sparse. I did have a blast with my sister, though, and got to see people that I haven't seen in a long time, so it was successful in that way.

 I took some photos of my space with my phone (wish I would have brought an area rug to hide that orange red floor)!

 My wine charms were a big hit (they are also a big hit in my shop). I let customers decide which ribbon they wanted and I think they liked that.
 This table and chair set got a lot of looks, but no takers. It's my last furniture piece and I really want to sell it. The gift tags did not sell and i was so surprised as they were only three dollars. I displayed them on a tray and held them up with these diamond shaped crystal ornaments (everyone wanted to buy the ornaments, which, of course, I didn't make).
I only sold two sets of magnets, which also surprised me as they were priced pretty low. I displayed my joy wine charms in a muffin tray and on the tree (which people also wanted to buy -- the tree, mean).
I really liked how this part of my display turned a lot of compliments and sold two boxes and three of my bags.

Switch plates were displayed next to my magazine article...I sold all but two, and got a custom order, so that was great!

One last look. So glad to be home...tomorrow I'm going to start decorating the house.

everything looks wonderful, renee! i love how eclectic and unique your booth is! i am sorry crowds were sparse... i stopped by chartreuse on friday and it was busy but not as packed as i expected, so i think it is just the economy honestly.

Wow Renee, your space looks great! Sorry it wasn't as busy as last year, but sister time is always a good plus :) Happy decorating!

Your booth looks great! I didn't do a show this year & really glad I didn't. I was wondering how the economy would effect sales; now I know. I'm doing Etsy this year & have done pretty good for being a newbie.
