I survived the angst of yesterday! The sale went well, even though I didn't sell all the items as I unrealistically wanted. At the end of the day, I had sold several of my Matryoska doll ornaments. I made 20 of these over the winter to sell and I'll offer the rest of them on my Etsy store and see if they sell that way.
I also sold a table runner that I'd made last summer. I can't find the picture of it right now but it coordinated with this table quilt--pale green and white pinwheels in the center with a dark green first border and appliqued bright flowers in each end and in the center.
I also sold a set of place mats that I'd finished the night before the sale and didn't take a picture of to show. They were made with a cartoon-ish Christmas print in the center and bands of either red and white or green and white around the center.
I also sold all three pin cushions that I had made and threw into the mix as a last minute thought. They were the last things I thought would sell! Go figure.
I'm all calm today and happy that I can make a very nice deposit to my fund. (Whoever sacrificed that goat on their back yard altar, thank you very much!)
I spent some time talking with other vendors at the sale about local craft fairs they go to and I think I'll be doing this next summer. If I do even 3 or 4 fairs and make comparable sales, it'll be good. There's also a winter farmers' market in the next town and I'm going to see if there's room there for me as well.
Now I have to get things taken care of at the Etsy store, Jolly Ruby, and see if I can find any buyers out there for my wares.
