Craft fair - take 2!

So today's fair went a lot better than the other week.  I think the location was better, it was advertised better and I was definitely more prepared.  I took 2 days off this past week to prep a little.  Unfortunately when we purchased our home, we did all of the touring/walk throughs during the day, so we never realized we didn't have overhead lighting in our bedrooms.  Needless to say, I don't do much stamping after the sun goes down.  So I'm glad I took those days off.  Not only did I get a lot of stamping done, I organized the boys clothes.  Went through 5 bins and reorganized the dresser and now they're ready for "winter" in Vegas.

So here are a few pictures from my booth.  If anyone reading this was at my booth today, please leave a comment! I regret not having my clipboard, so I'd love to stay connected :)

I sold lots of cards but surprisingly, these s'mores were my best seller! Maybe because no one else had food :)

So, I suppose I owe a huge thanks to my mom who told me not to let my first experience (a flop!) scare me from doing another craft booth.  I really think having cards prepackaged and organized really helped.

I also had a new unmounted stamp set from last years mini that I raffled off.. Every $5 spent got them an entry.  Think that helped.  I had a good time :) 

Here are some samples too of cards I made in preparation.. It's been awhile since I've posted so I thought I'd share them too.

These 8 pks of tags were $3. Only sold one pack :( but, at least my Christmas packages will be cute :)

And I sold $23 worth of coasters, with $38 ordered for Christmas. 

Think that's enough for now.  Hope you all enjoy that extra hour of sleep :) I know I need it
