Handmade Faire WrapUp – Finally!!!

Well last week I did the Handmade Faire in Waretown, NJ. What an absolutely awesome show! Well organized and great vendors. Abbie and Pola did a first class job! It was my first showing of just my own products and I realize I really have to get cracking on my production and displays. Got to meet more members of the EtsyNJ Team and even picked up alittle something for myself and the kid from Kecia of Lemoncholy’s.

OMG! Can I just say her stuff is AMAZING!! I had to drag myself away from the table with one item for me and one for the kid. I can only hope to be at her level of design with collage/mixed media.

Last minute prep for Handmade Faire – April 20 – Waretown, NJ

Been busy prepping inventory for this weekend’s Handmade Faire in Waretown. I’m like a busy crafty beaver. So sleepy and so wired at the same time. I have a few more products to make but at some point I’m going to have to stop.

This is my first fair where I’m exhibiting my wares only so I’m a tad bit nervous but feeling good. My trusty helpers (Mom, Aunt Laraine, and Evie) will be there to assist me so that always promises a good day.

Yay! It’s the Handmade Faire!
