I signed up to do my first craft show.
Outdoors.
During a pandemic. :lol:

I need a table, hand sanitizer & will wear a mask.

There is no fee for the table space. It's just a bunch of crafters setting up at
Farmhouse Creations - over on the corner of Rt. 20 & Johnson Road - in case you want
to go, Ardell! :) Farmhouse Creations is a beautiful store with small furniture and home
decor, that a family has out in their barn, next to their house.

Need to figure out what to make & how much to make.
Wish I knew what other items people will be selling - so I don't duplicate anything.

Thinking this trial run will be for the fun of it. I do not plan to get rich! :lol:
Now to get craftin'!

Fabulous Patti! You have a special talent....share it....and earn a little $ to feed your talent! Outside and with a mask you should be fine. Do you have business cards? If not, get them!! ASAP! Vista is a good source.

I have been waiting for you to do this as your stuff is always great. As far as duplications - don't worry you'll win!!

Why do I feel like I'm on a run-away train? :wink: :lol:

Just ordered business cards & as long as I was there, a yard sign that we can use in front of our table.
My DIL is coming with me. We've been talking for a while about doing a party planning side hustle.
There's not a lot of $$ to be made where we live, but we're gonna throw it out in the universe that
our party planning pom pom making skills are available.

My name - "pom poms & buttons"

When I was a scrapbooker, buttons were my favorite embellishment.
Plus, I love yarn. And felt. But I've been making pom poms lately, so I thought...that's a cute name.

Nothing ventured, nothing gained. Right?!
(Plus, I know Big Papa would be so glad for this.)

Patti you will be a hit for sure, you are sooo talented and have such a creative eye. Maybe include a photo book of your past projects so people can order if they see something they like.
