Show review -- Columbia
What a weekend it was. Yes, I know, its now THURSDAY!, and this report is a little late, but better late than never!!
After the exhausting set up on Friday evening, the show went pretty well.
After starting the morning by having to mop the tables dry of condensation from the heavy dew, Saturday was HOT, needed to use the neck "koolaroos" and between us we drank most of a case of water. It was a good thing that I had taken the few pictures of the malachite bracelet just before we left, because I sold it on Saturday afternoon...YIPEE!! (means I get to make some more)
Sunday morning it was cooler, and we had a high thin cloud cover....much easier temperature wise. Never even took the koolaroos out of the ice chest, but we did still drink a lot of water. A couple that had been in the booth on Saturday admiring the Moonshine collar came back and bought it. Needless to say, I was thrilled....wow!!
The end result of the show was that we actually made a little money, and had lots of good comments about our work. I sold 4 of DHs art clay pieces (now he has to make more aspen leaf necklaces!), which pleased him as well. Hopefully we'll be able to do this show again next year and do even better.
When we set up we used the "less is more" principle again, and it seems to help with the jewelry pieces too.....people could actually see what was there.
The pictures show shots of our booth at the show (even some with customers)
