After spending the past 3 months preparing for my first craft fair, I thought that I would be dragging my butt around feeling exhausted. Quite the contrary. Seeing and hearing the feedback from my customers was a great experience and made me tremendously excited to start new projects and to create more original items for my Etsy shop.
Sometimes I think that’s all it takes is accomplishing a big goal to make you feel great about yourself. Losing the baby weight was a big one for me along with breast feeding Miles for his whole first year of life. Now, I can say that I was able to prepare and turn a profit at my first craft fair. It certainly wasn’t easy. I crocheted and crocheted up until the last night before the fair and my wrist still hurts to prove it. Thanks to my husband Kofi for being super dad for the entire week leading up to the fair, I was able to get it all done and feel like I had enough inventory for the space.
Now I have several new products in my shop that didn’t sell at the craft fair, but seem to be very popular in the Etsy-verse. I’m proud of them and feel like I’m finally finding my artistic self through them.
