Last weekend was my last craft show of the season. It was held in the little bitty town of Hollandale, WI, but with 35 vendors, crafts for the kids, and a visit from Santa, it was a busy place! The more shows I do the easier it is to get ready, but I always get a little stressed the night before, making sure that I have everything I need and have prepared enough products....and the "right" products, at that.
But the best part of a craft show is getting to talk to people. (I mean really, getting to spend hours and hours yakking? How easy is that?) Sometimes it's chatting with a regular customer looking for a favorite soap, checking out another handcrafter's work, talking shop with a fellow soaper, or introducing someone to the superiority of handmade soap.
Craft shows are unpredictable things, but I really enjoy them. And coming home with fewer boxes, like I did over the weekend, makes for a happy me!
