The show was a real fiasco and totally didn't go as I expected it.
Above is how my booth looked like....I had to leave some of the items inside my suite case 'cause the table was smaller that I was promised, so I had to cram as much as possible in the space I had.
Aside for a lots of "ohhh" and "ahhh" and for "OMG your stuff is so cute....did you make it yourself???" I didn't get much action. I didn't sell even one thing and was able to hand out a whopping 5 business cards.......2 were to children :(
I did learn a few things tho:
1- I will NOT do outdoor show in Florida. The heat made my nose bleed and the wind knocked my displays over like 500 times.
2- Next time I will make sure to participate to art&craft show only: this event included rummage and used goods vendors too (and cheapo resellers) and the crowd was looking for a few bucks deal, not high end crochet nick knacks.
3- Next time, I will go check out the event before deciding to participate: the exact dimensions of the table, space available around it, number and type of vendors and if they allow soliciting....which it would have been ok if the solicitors were charged the same fee of me, but this wasn't the case.
4- I did create a bit of interested when I started crocheting "live": so that's definitely something I will keep doing.
I guess that pretty much sums it up. Archived like a lesson learned for next time with a bruise on my pride.
