Craft Fair Tips at Luann Udell's blog

Wow...such insight...21 tips and worth time, a cup of coffee and a a notebook to jot down ideas that come to mind!!!

Thanks knitsteel for sharing the link with the etsymom team!

Luann Udell's blog "Good Booths Gone Bad #19 Choosing Fewer Choices"

I chose this link as this is *my* dilemma as I set up for a fair on Saturday in Gilford, NH...will sift through my items tonight in anticipation of flooding the customer and immobilizing them from buying. Can't do that!!!

Thank you to luann for her insight and hope this turns into a book someday for the masses!!!

That is code for my craft fair is this Saturday and I hope i have enough of what folks like...Last count was 707 items made and packaged.

anxiety is overwhelming me...worry, fear, hesitation...what if no one buys? what if I sell out?

what if I leave with all my stuff to tote to another fair?

Nov. 17 Bow High School, Bow, there with bells on...I'm pretty sure I'll be in the gym.

Dec 1 Gilford Middle School, Gilford, NH Middle school the middle of the middle..hee hee earn back some of the fees and propay subscription...hopefully accepting credit cards will be the good thing. It would be wonderful if I can afford to pay for my silly crown and new front windshield for the car happens when I'm off planning...

Credits and thanks go out to...

Kim, Karen, KK, Kathi, Becky for packaging 468 items last Sunday with me!
Lynne...for designing my table space, working the fairs with me and being an all around wonderful friend to bounce ideas off of!
My husband that has put up with STUFF everywhere!
My kids, that deal with mommy with a needle and thread much of the time.

God Grant me the Serenity
to accept the things I can not change
the courage to change the things I can
and the wisdom to know the difference...

it's in God's hands now.
Blessings to you all!
