Craft Fair and Small Business Saturday

On Saturday, I participated in my FIRST EVER craft fair! I had 4 sales on Etsy previously, so this was extremely exciting to reach a new audience and do direct sales. Here’s me at my booth at the start:

I am so honored and blessed at the friends and family that came to show their support, and I walked away with a successful experience! I learned a lot, and am really encouraged to do this again. Perhaps some summer Farmer’s Markets are in the future!

My first order was for the customized casserole dishes. I easily sold more custom-made items than pre-made. Though I should have predicted this, I wish I didn’t spend quite so much time building inventory! (Ok, ok, I know it made my booth more attractive and eye-catching).

So, with all my inventory and the joy I’m having making custom gifts for folks, I encourage you to visit my Facebook page Made With Abandon for local sales and customized requests, and my Etsy Page MadeWithAbandon for orders requiring shipment.
