With this morning's cool temps in the 30's, it's already feeling like winter will be here before you know it! My wonderful friends on the Old Farmhouse Gathering's Etsy Team have put together over 100 brand new handmade holiday items just for you! The celebration begins today and runs through October 15th.
I have four new items for your consideration. Here's a peek at two of them.
I'm already in show mode, and will spend the next day or so preparing for my first big one on October 20th. Whew, there's a lot of prep work to putting together an attractive booth! I'm signed up to do three brand new (for me) shows this year, so it should be exciting to meet some new customers (hopefully!) and sell in different venues. Craft shows are starting to become a bit more scarce now, as many are dealing with too many regulations, insurance costs, and attracting quality vendors. This isn't all bad, since there was a time not too long ago when there seemed to be an over abundance of shows, all on the same weekend! Plus, it's becoming more of a challenge as a vendor to recover and profit after paying the show fees, which seem to increase a lot each year. However, it's still an enjoyable experience for me to meet my customers face-to-face, and hear all the wonderful comments, so I'll keep doing these for a while!
