Admittedly I have stayed far, far away from vending at craft bazaars over the last few years. I usually get overly optimistic about potential sales and think that customers will fall head over heels for my cool stuff. I then stress about having enough product, creating more/different items, etc. All the while driving my husband and kiddos bonkers.
From out of nowhere I just got the itch! Sometimes you just have to get your hands dirty, kwim? I also thought it would be fun to have my oldest daughter sell her fun bracelets with me at our booth.
I really tried to focus on just three items. Book paper wreaths, animal deco jars and chalkboards. I'd say I did my best at keeping it low-stress and fun. Did I sell much? Nope. Will I do it again next year? Probably not. However it wasn't a total loss. I got to spend time with my girls and completed most of my Christmas shopping while there. That's not hard to do when there are 50+ vendors.
My daughters bracelets and cuffs.
I will be posting a mini-diy tutorial with links for each of my items. Stay tuned.
P.S. If you are a close friend or family member, don't be surprised if one of these little gems ends up on your door step this year.
Thanks for stopping by!
