Different kind of a list today, because tomorrow I will have a booth at my very first craft fair. I am nervous about it. Nervous I don’t have enough inventory, nervous I don’t have enough variety, nervous I have the wrong sizes/colors, nervous that my prices are too high, nervous I will sell out early, nervous I will not sell anything.
I need to ignore all that and just get ready and do my best, right? This is how I learn what sells.
Today I need to make sure I go over my list and pack everything I will need, then load the car with it all and head out. I’ll be staying overnight at Mom’s, as she is right near the venue (the Owls Head Transportation Museum in Owls Head, from 9-2 on Saturday, please come if you are in Maine!) and is happy to have me.
Today I will set up the table and get my head ready for it, then help Mom make a million sandwiches for the food stall.
My sister and her family will also be coming to Mom’s at some point Friday night, my sister will have a booth next to mine at the fair. I think it will work out well, as she will be selling her knits and pottery, and I don’t know what else. She and I are complete opposites in the colors we are drawn to, so I hope that between us, no matter what color hat you want, we have it. 🙂
There will be some visiting before bed. Little Niece E will do some entertaining, without a doubt.
In the middle of all that, I will do plenty of nervous knitting and probably some last minute display prep.
I will take photos of the booth, but don’t expect professional perfection – I am just not there yet. I did remember to type up care instructions to give to folks, so I don’t have to say 1 million times “hand wash cold don’t wring dry flat keep colors separate. ” 🙂
Lots of deep breathing is also on the list.
