Even though it required a lot of preparation, I was so happy to be part of Bust Magazine Craftacular and Food Fair. I went to the same event last Spring and knew that my work would fit right in with the other merchandise. The vibe is super fun and laid back, and it attracts a great group of people with creative ideas. I had the pleasure of meeting other awesome vendors and even made a fantastic trade with one at the end of the day.
It was a great opportunity to see what pieces people were more drawn to so I can follow that in the future, and to see how the pricing ranges worked for everybody. Thankfully, I did plenty of research on how to prepare for a craft fair, so I had all the supplies I needed. My wonderful and supportive boyfriend helped me carry everything over in the morning and at closing--very important for a vertically challenged girl like me. The whole experience was a super positive and fun, and I will definitely do it again.
But best of all, I had the pleasure of making people laugh with my embroidery! I had so much fun talking to people about Downton Abbey and our favorite Kanye lyrics... seriously folks, these are the things friendships are based on. Thanks to every
