Upcoming Events

These next couple of weekends will be full of crafty wonderment for me / The Tragic Whale. I was at the Quashnet School annual craft fair last weekend, I’ll be at Coonamessett Farm tomorrow, and in Vermont the weekend after that! I’m really excited for a couple of reasons.

1) I’m much more confident in myself and my work than I was last year at this time.

2) It’s easier for me to engage people walking by my table and tell them about how I make my bags.

3) I don’t bring EVERYTHING I have. I bring a selection of different sized, shaped, and priced bags. This allows me to keep my shop open online, and gives me other things to talk about with people. If someone says, “I like this makeup bag but I would love a smaller one,” I’m able to say, “I have several other sizes,  including an extra small bag, a blah blah blah.”

I’ve added an “Events” page to keep anyone interested up to date!

Tomorrow I’ll be at Coonamessett Farm in E. Falmouth which means I’ll be sharing pictures via Instargram, Facebook, Twitter, and Tumblr, so get ready! My doctor suggested I look into it, and I’m excited because there will be a lot of local crafters there, and most of the shows I’ve done have been a jumble of crafts and people who just sell things.  Like this guy and his wife we call “Dog Socks,” because most of the fairs we did last year we saw them and they sell socks with dogs on them.

11 am to 3 pm, rain or shine! If you’re in the Cape Cod area you should totally come check it out!


SAE Holiday Fair

Today, Peter and I did a fair at the Station Ave Elementary School in Yarmouth. He was plugging for a table at a high school because he thinks we’ll do better but I thought it was a  pretty good one. The school band played for a little while and then the chorus sang Christmas songs, and a few vendors / visitors recognized us from the Orleans show!

We had an especially small table today because someone (me) bought a new folding table and didn’t look at the size before loading it into her car and driving around with it for a week. So instead of our normal 8 ft table we had a 6 ft table. Oops. I was going to trade it in but then I thought we could get a 4 ft one and make an L with them, giving us a little more room in the future. Or an arm rest!

Here’s our little spot in the gym:

It was right near the entrance which is good and not-so-good. Good because people see us almost first! Not-so-good people people don’t always want to buy things right away. They want to look around, make a list in their head, and buy after. But by the time they hit the end they forget about us or already found other things to get instead.

This is Peter’s display:

And some close ups!

Peter has patience I couldn’t even dream of, opening and closing all those little rings to create such beautiful chain mail jewelry (and bikini tops)!

We’re looking for a show to do on December 15th so if you hear of anything in the Cape Cod area, please let me know!
