This weekend was the big weekend long craft show that I attended for the first time in 4 years. The last couple of times that I sold at this show I was with a group of people and this year it was the same. The group that I was with was the Fiber Arts Network (formerly the Fredericton Designer Weavers). There were 4 of us that had work in the booth and we had a lot of help from a fifth member, Sarah. She came by and hung out and helped sell, spelled us when we needed to have a break, go to the bathroom, or (I'll admit it) go shopping in the craft sale.
Here is one view of our booth. The silk scarves to the right of the picture are mine. Most of the caplets and ponchos in the back are Karen's.
Here is another view of the portion of the scarf section of the booth. Along with the origami cranes and reindeer. Decapitated bear heads are in the next booth. Click on the picture for a closer view.
The wall of "hot" colours. This wall has drawn more people into the booth than any other has, I have noticed that there is something about red and orange that really captures peoples attention. Few actually buy red or orange, but many are attracted to it and then settle on a "safer" choice.
Mostly my scarves. Hand spun to the right, hand dyes to the left. Hand spun and hand dyed yarns in the basket in the middle.
As far as sales have gone, it has been a pretty good weekend. I have told a lot of people about my little market and a lot of people about the craft sale that I help organize in December. I feel that my time has not been wasted and I hope to draw a few more people to the other places that I sell.
Because in the end, I do weave to sell, so that I can support my yarn habit :-)
