Summer of 2009 Craft Show Season


It has been an incredible season so far. My best ever. I spoke to a friend who said she was listening to the radio program "Money Matters" and that a women on the program said her mom is having the best season since the 1980's. I started selling at shows in the mid 1990's and always heard how wonderful the 80's were.

As a one woman business and two shows each weekend I am finding no time to list new designs onto my online stores. I hope to start listing again after Labor Day.

With two shows a week it sure pushes ones creativity to come up with new designs. So many of my customers come by each weekend to see what I have new.

Also, price pyramiding really boost sales. I have items that range from $6 to $300. My bread and butter sales are in the $15 to $20 range. A great sales day is made when I sell a high dollar piece.

Hope everyone is having a stellar season! Cheers!
