Fall wreaths are super popular here right now. I know there will be others with wreaths, but if yours are different, like the buttons you mentioned, I bet they will sell.

Patti, gnomes are huge!
Still.
I adore them.

Think Christmas for your things. I'd love if the craft shows for Christmas were earlier than they are.
My nail tech does craft shows (not this year thought) and sells at her station too.
She really loves snowmen and it's amazing how many different ways snowmen can be without looking tacky.
She's farmhouse/ primitive style.
Always sells out down here.

OMG KAT!!!
Gnomes are my favorite!!!
I love them. Megan hates them. :lol: :lol:
If I have time, I'm going to make a couple for fillers - and see how they do.
Yes - we are thinking Christmas.
I'm making shelf sitters - with sayings that people can keep out all winter.
I also painted some small wood rolling pins - to use on tiered trays.

Thanks for the tip, Mindy!
I'm going to make a couple winter wreaths w/loopy yarn. And then it all depends on how much time I have!

Thanks, everyone for your replies! xo

That is what I am having a hard time finding things for my tiered tray!
I'm not going out gallivanting at stores and what they have seems tacky to me.
Maybe you need to do an Etsy store... :wink: :mrgreen:

Patty, this is just wonderful. You will be doing great. I wish I was living closer. I would certainly want to buy some of the lovely things you make.

October 3rd.
Noon - 5.
They're planning rain or shine, but if it's crappy out, I don't want to put out my stuff.
I wouldn't want anything to get wet or dirty. So...I'm coming up with a back-up plan
if the weather isn't nice.

Could you borrow a canopy to put over your table? We've done garage sales and a couple of times it was raining. Most vendors put up canopies, as we did, and it kept us and our table nice and dry. We put the table towards the back of the canopy, so people actually came in out of the rain.

Craft fair is tomorrow! Some rain in forecast - but Tom will bring our canopy to put up for me.
Our DIL Megan will spend the day with me. She is my apprentice. :mrgreen:

I took Kat's suggestion and made some gnomes. Then I made a sign that says "I'll be gnome for
Christmas". It's a challenge for me to post pics - I need time to sit and do it, but I promise I'll post
pics of our craft booth.

First time out - I'm excited & only a little anxious. I bought a square so that I can take cc payments -
and that technology sh*t always gives me pause - but I'm hoping it operates smoothly.

Thanks for the support everyone! Be back on Sunday to report results & post pics. :)

p.s. Fingers crossed for good weather!!!
