Our First Craft Show aka “Learning Experience”

I’ve got a few different things that I think I want to share as it relates to our craft show experience, so this will probably be the first of a few posts. Just bear with me.

As you may recall, this past weekend Kati and I took Two Florida Girls to the craft show scene at Ormond’s Art in the Park. We quickly learned that the use of the word “park” in this case was not quite what we were expecting. Kati, Kasey and I went to the show site on Friday just to get an idea of where we would set up the next morning. We learned that booth #71 was not necessarily in the “park”, but rather situated in a very shady spot…under a very big bridge…you know, the kind cars drive over to cross the Intracoastal.

We got an early start on Saturday morning. Mom, Dad, Kasey and I unloaded everything and then Kasey worked her magic on the display tables. It was truly a team effort. Because we did not have any contact with direct sunlight, we opted not to use the tent canopy we brought. We had two tables for merchandise and one for us to sit at. We started out rather hopeful, but that hope faded throughout the weekend. It was not all bad, though. As mentioned in the title, it was definitely a learning experience (which I’ll elaborate on in another post). We did make enough money to pay off the entry fee into the show, so that was nice. And, we did meet a nice couple who we’d kinda “met” on Etsy (http://ambyfrogs.etsy.com).

So…it was a good learning experience. More to come, but for now…here are a few pictures. And, we’ve been adding stuff to the shop…check it out: http://twofloridagirls.etsy.com
