Who was the monkey? Me.
What was I in the middle of? The Kiddlebug Shop and jake + cleo's tables at the Creative Collection Craft Sale at the Crescentwood CC this past Sunday.
How much fun was it? More than a barrel of monkeys, that's for sure.
This was my second year as a vendor at the CCC sale and, once again, it was a gooder. Had it not been a blinking winter wonderland outside, it might have even been an uber-gooder. Traffic was ok, especially compared to last week's show at the FMCC, but it still seemed like it could have been busier. I've heard it through the grapevine that other crafters (including some that were at other shows) were feeling the same way, too.
That said, I still managed to make a pretty good day of it. I left with some cash in my wallet and a much-lighter load to cart home. The big sellers were, again, pins and jewelry racks, so I have been busy making more of both in preparation for the big Manitoba Crafts Council/TAYGCS sale this coming Friday at the WECC. (It's a good thing I stocked up on supplies when I did!) It was good to see the jewelry racks get such a great response...kinda makes me think that I might be on the right track...
And, once again, thanks to the lovely Corina from jake + cleo for taking the candid picture of me (above)! You can't see it in the shot, but I was proudly wearing my jake + cleo "bellybutton" necklace, which I won (yay me!) on their blog.
