The craft fair.... how did I get myself into this?!? One of my co-workers is a crafter in her own right... and she asked me quite a few months back if I would be interested in splitting a booth with her. "Sure" - I say - I can sell some knit scarves that used to be in a friend's boutique, before they moved to Portland.... and I'm sure I can design and knit some felted bags... and maybe make some embroidered bracelets with the fancy sewing machine. I blame this completely on moving twice in the last three months... the stock is very small. Very, very small. I will be a mad woman for the next month trying to get more made.
I am anxious about it too... the last time I participated in a street fair, some four years ago, I was attempting to sell some of my designed and painted ceramic pieces. Nothing sold - in fact one piece broke when a gust of wind knocked it down - I came out of it losing money. I fully believe that it was the type of person that the fair attracted the prevented the selling of anything.
I am hoping this one will be different... it's in a much better neighborhood and it is a fairly popular fair. If you are in Encinitas, CA on Sunday, November 20th, please stop by the Poinsettia Festival... especially Booth 713, between F and G Streets... I will be there, hoping that people will like what I've made and want to buy it!
Hi, my name is Marisa, and I'm addicted to all things knitting:
Phildar for Andy...
Phildar for me.
More Phildar because it has some really cute things in it.
Because I love Borders and really want to make...
On the Next "Catching Up"... Could it be?? Yes more enhancement of the stash! And, of course, a review of Phildar Wervik.
