Getting Ready for the Snowflake!

Just a few days to go until the Snowflake Bazaar. Yesterday, I finally put price tags on my items and today I will attempt to fit-in last-minute painting and glittering in between all of the usual Mommy stuff. The room we affectionately refer to as the Girly Office is looking more like the Girly Garage.

I love these little tags that Shellie made for me.

I am a big fan of branding (as goofy as that might sound) so I have (minty fresh!) cards and magnets ready.

My pretty organized gift sets. Sets include 1 tin can, 3 clothespins, 1 painted pencil and 1 painted seashell (perfect for paper clips).

My sister Betsy will visit from NJ this weekend and asked if I could do something with her plain wooden tray. A little paint and some decoupage and it is on its way to being shabbified!

While all the supplies are out, I thought I'd tinker with an autumn berry wreath that had seen its last Fall. Hmmm? Maybe some glitter? Is it working?

Any advice about being a vendor at a craft fair is not only welcome, it is being requested! Thank you to all my bloggerette pals for all of your encouragement and support! xo

Oh everything looks so pretty, well done you!
Now as for the advice, have plenty of change in my experience people come with big notes!!!
Oh and don't mind saying hello when they come to the stall, people generally like it when you say hello just don't spook them by standing over them looking at them all the time. You have to figure out which type of person they are too, I've found that some people like to have a conversation with you and don't mind stopping and chatting but some people really don't want a conversation as they seem to think you are trying to sell them things!

You can always try and let people know that you are having a great day too and that you have sold lots as people seem to be able to buy if they think others have bought things too or this may just be a British thing! Lol!
Anyhoo, lots of luck you will do great I'm sure.
love Alison

When my bags were sold, I put a "SOLD" tag on them, still display them & the nice buyers pick up their bags later in the day. Similar to what Vintage Amethyst said, I think this encourage buyers & browsers. A notepad for people to fill up, to get on yr mailing list, for future events like this.
