A Very Good Day

Well today turned out to be a very good day, I had to make a investment in a new phone in order to do credit card sales at what I was hoping were confirmed dates for craft fairs.

The craft fairs are finally confirmed, and the phone proved itself worth its weight in gold, I was able to get my email and converse with the customers enough to be able to get two possible sales today through my supply shop. Then tonight, it is BNR night at Promofrenzy team, I made a sale through my handmade shop, probably not enough to warrant keeping the shop open, but we shall see. I have already moved most of the handmade items into the bins for craft fair, and the embroidery blanks will be moved into the supply shop when they expire.

Everything I need for the craft fairs are on their way and will hopefully be here in time for the first one, it has been awhile since I have done a craft fair, 25 years to be exact, so I am alittle nervous, but I am sure not that much could have possibly changed.

I still have a few more items to finish up, get my son set up for some of his college appointments, get our taxes done, and my father heads in for surgery on the 20th of this month, so we are off and running for the third month of the year. Which is good, but alittle nerve wracking sometimes :)

  1. You're gearing me up to sign up for some spring fairs I keep holding off on. So much overhead.

  3. Congrats on the new phone. I'm afraid if I get a smartphone, I'll never take a break. Congrats on the sale. Hope you get everything one.

  5. In Spain they don’t tend to have craft fairs (maybe in the bigger cities) BUT they do have artisan markets every so often, if you sign up for one you don't have to worry about a licence (if you do the regular markets you do.) So I am hoping to do a few in the up and coming months! I wish you all the best in your sales and fairs! I am sure there is no reason to be worried, I used to go with my mum in the uk about 5 years ago and I'm sure they haven't changed much overtime. lol :)
