I was a vendor – and I survived! ;o)
R even looks happy to be there!
There’s even photographic evidence that I exist!
Overall I’d have to say that my first experience as a vendor – on my own, not sharing a space – was pretty good. I talked to a LOT of people on Saturday which drained this introvert but it was fun hearing the new ideas that people came up with for my bags (I sold one to a 7 year old who will be using it for his snack bag – it had robots on the outside with a glow-in-the-dark-stars on the inside. He’s going to be the coolest kid in the 2nd grade!) and even more fun to enable in person. ;o) I will definitely be doing this again!
I think the best part was sharing the whole tent with friends – there was no competition, no vying for space, no glaring when you stepped into someone elses 10×10 area, it was awesome! Here are photos of the other booths in our ‘Indie Oasis’:
That about wraps up the Showcase section of Saturday – coming up? The house and gardens!
(I’ll also be listing some new bags later today and labeling those bags that are ready for immediate shipment in the shop ;o) )
