One down, one to go

Saturday’s craft show was a blast.

There was a decent crowd (although we would have preferred a larger crowd), the weather was beautiful, and we had a really nice group of vendors. I sold the perfect number of items — any more sales, and I’d be concerned about not having enough for Atomic Holiday Bazaar.

I was happy with how my booth turned out, and especially thrilled with the rack I bought at Puckett’s Store Fixtures. It was super easy to take apart and put together. Alex helped me, but I probably could have done it myself.

Overall, Craft Roots was a lot of fun. And it made me more confident about Atomic Holiday Bazaar — which is in 48 days!!!!!
