Here is a new booth shot from November 21 craft show in nearby Winter Haven … another Florida craft show. Of note, I added three thread art pictures to this show and sold 2 of them. The promoter reported 6000 in attendance. If that is true, my sales were not great. It is tough out there for everyone in the land of forever craft shows: every weekend, somewhere.
I know going to craft shows in Florida is cheap entertainment and the majority of the (maybe) “thousands” that attend are not buyers. Given that and all the work and expense involved you will have to think I am crazy for doing it. Yes, I am “sew crazy.” The best part is the attention to my craft, the nice words and, really, it’s not their fault they can’t afford to buy anything.
I’m thinking about summer when I’ll have time to create. I have an idea for a smaller, non-framed product that I will be able to make available to interested people, but in the $20 range. No time to do it now as I have another Florida craft show on December 5-6th in St. Cloud and then December 12th in Brooksville.
If you follow my shows, I hope to see you there! The “sandpiper” is in the works yet but I have three more pictures ready: a large shore bird with its reflection in water and two 8×10’s featuring a snowy egret in sunset on one and a blue-throated hummingbird on the other. I’ll show them on-line if I still have them after December 12.
And, off I go to another Florida craft show ……….
