I'm breathing a little easier today with my first big show under my belt.
This past Saturday went off without a hitch other than some mother nature issues but thankfully we were prepared and expecting it to rain (the dampness makes furniture swell though, not to self) and a few odd GPS concerns leading people to a field at the other end of our road.
I am thankful for all the people who made the trek, loved the products and shopped till they dropped. We made notes of comments and what sold/didn't sell for the next show.
It struck as odd some things that fly out the door on etsy and were unrecognizable to people locally. Learning experiences all around.
Well enough chatter for today.
Here are some photos snapped before everyone arrived.
The front of our house is decorated for fall and welcomed everyone to our garage turned showhouse.
the cabinet was finished right before the show and i will show some more details tomorrow. it is still here however and listed on kijiji if anyone is interested in giving it a lovely home.
trevor wants to keep it he likes it so much but i don't think we can fit another china cabinet
my favourite shot from the show. it shows our new plywood planked wall which we worked very hard on adding insulation and then walls to our whole garage space. the lights on the ceiling are from barnlight electric
the rustic checkout area
the shoppers starting to roll in
Thanks again everyone and hope to see you in the spring
My nutty brain is already planning lots of great new products.
