Kerry does a craft fair.

Last Saturday I did my very first craft fair! It was scary and exciting and I had a lot of fun.

I shared a table with my friend, Peter. He makes some really amazing chain-maille jewelry. Here’s what my half looked like:

In true Kerry fashion, I forgot to take pictures of Peter’s half of the table, other interesting things at the fair, and just general things throughout the day.

I was originally very nervous about being in a craft fair because large groups of people make me uncomfortable and sometimes it’s hard for me to be nice to strangers. But it was easier than I thought! Although I only made a few sales, I had a lot of fun just talking to people and seeing what they were interested in. I learned that most women who stopped by our table didn’t need any bags but think I use cute fabrics.

I learned that it’s difficult for me to talk up my own products and that I need to work on my display. And maybe make a sign.

Peter and I already picked out another fair to do in February and want to squeeze in one or two more before Christmas. Hopefully I’ll remember to take more pictures next time!
