Christmas in July--Craft Fair

Hey hey, friends:}


Just wanted to share some pictures of my craft fair this weekend! Just in case you didn't know--I own my own business {Jelly Bean Designs}. The craft fair was at our local Cultural Center--I've done this particular show 3 times! And this time was by far the BESTEST ever:} I can't believe how many repeat customers I had! It was so much fun--sad news::: I didn't get any pics of me behind the booth....Trav was working and I forgot to ask someone to take a pic. Eh. 
Here are some of the things I sell. I make cards and journals....but I also sew baby items, home items, bracelets, etc. I love love love the colors of my booth and how it is set up [however, this time--I had LOTS more (new and old)...so I ran out of room!]. I really enjoy doing craft fairs--I love Jelly Bean Designs!

This is a front view--I have a 6x3 table and another smaller table behind to hold my board. Plus, I use Molly (my mannequin) and my tubs for extra room. 
This is my extra table--and there is Xerxes. I didn't hold him like I usually do--I was a bit lazy at this show;}
Here is the left side of the table. Lots and lots of cards--I had over 1000!! WOW!
Middle of the table--more and more stuff:}
Right side of the table--MORE stuff! 

I also have a page of all the craft fairs since I started my business in April 2008 [actually--two shows are missing on this page because I forgot to upload them. I will add them later!]. I love looking back at what I started with and how I've grown. My next project::: ETSY! I've had a store for about a year...just didn't upload anything...so my goal is to upload onto that soon!!! **NOTE:: If you look for Jelly Bean Designs--it won't be there. My store [as of today] is called JellyBeanDesign


Thanks so much for stopping by! I'm on my way out the door to do some shopping--and I can't wait to get back--CRAFTING! I've missed creating!! Thanks again-- love visiting with you:} Be blessed!

Great set-up! Are you successful selling cards at this fair? Just curious as I have a friend wanting me to do one with her and wasn't sure how successful I would be.

How fun is this?!? I've always wanted to sell my cards but never thought they were good enough. Is the general public very receptive to handmade cards?

Looks great and like a ton of fun! I want to grow up and be you! Seriously, I strive to one day make enough cards I would be able to sell them. As it is, I'm usually making quick for personal needs. I really hope one day to take my love of crafting to the next level, congrats to you!
