This year I was excited to once again be invited to Venosta, QC for the annual sale of Celtic Christmas Crafts - now there's some alliteration for ya! Last year was my first time attending flea markets and sales, so refining the art of creating an inventory and table display is an ongoing process.
This year I spent some time making new tags (may or may not be because I couldn't find the old ones - ssh!) and figuring out what items I had more or less of. (With a little help from my pink monkey friend - sold in Venosta!) Lots of folks had asked for socks in the previous year, so I made sure to have lots of those.
Given that it is a Celtic sale, I also had to make sure I had some shamrocks on hand!
I set up near the fire for some extra ambiance ;).
It was a successful sale for sure - the little stories along the way are my favourite part, and sharing the experience with my Momma who comes with me to most of my sales. One of the things we learned to predict was who would pick this sweater up:
The last highlight I can't forget is seeing a previous customer show up in her handmade sweater!
I had completed this request following a visit from a customer at the Brennan's Hill Market last summer - and didn't she walk in wearing it this year!
Thanks very much to Lisa Kelly who organized another great event this year - I'm grateful to be included. One more market to go before holiday orders get wrapped up!
