CreativiTea Craft Show

Setting up for the CreativitTea Craft Show took some creativity on our parts since Staci and I were sharing two 8 x 5 spaces.  Thankfully, we requested double booths (next to one another) so we were able to share the space in between both "booth spaces."  This was a different type of show for us as the there was a central checkout and it was a 2 day show.  We just had to make sure all of our items were properly tagged with a vendor number and amount.  For the first time since we have done craft shows together, we don't know exactly how much of our items we sold.  We have an idea but it's difficult to know when customers don't pay you for the items in your booth.  Overall, we had a good experience.  The ladies organizing the show were very friendly and took excellent care of all their vendors...they provided breakfast, an assortment of drinks and even lunch.  Staci and I look forward to returning to this juried show next year. 

 I took lots of pictures of our booths.  We have worked very hard to create many one of a kind up-cycled items created from felted wool, paper, vintage linens and fabric.  This year, many of my items and designs revolve around butterflies.
