    Default A Fantastic Craft Show

    Well my first craft show of the season has come and gone. It was an amazing show. I made 10% more than the same show last year. I took 102 bowl cozies with me, and was sold out by 1:30 Sat., so I had none to sell today. (2 day show) I know I would have sold another 40 at least..I do have a couple of orders, for 8 total that I need to get made up. We were very busy yesterday with steady sales all day. The bowl cozy sales counted for a little less than half of my total sales. Today was pretty slow...but we had enough sales today that we didn't fall asleep, lol.
    My grand daughter is such a huge help for me. She unloaded the van almost single handed Friday evening when we sat up, then was with me all week end, helping with customers and keeping the space tidy and organized. She is a pro at counting back change, and running the card reader. She earns the $ her Gran pays her for helping me out.
    This old gal is worn out from the week end however. Gonna go grab a bite, and then spend the rest of the evening chilling.
    Will spend the next 5 weeks restocking for my next show the first week end of December. Lots of bowl cozies need to be made.

    I'm so glad you did so well. It makes it all worthwhile and is heartwarming for all the effort.

    Congratulations you did so well! Who knew bowl cozies would fly off the shelf like that!! Just curious, what did you price them at?

    My show price is not the same as my on line price. I buy my wrap n zap by the bolt, so it drastically cuts down on the cost to make them. I also am a 'pro' at making them, and don't even need to mark the lines or use a template like some people do. Selling that many in a 2 day period gives me plenty of profit on what it cost me to make them.

    Congratulations on a successful show! Do you make your cozies starting with a 10 inch square?
