I can't sit still long enough to sale like that ****now i am glad i don't try****Hope things bright up in the sales department for you hugs
That really bums. Still I hope you have a prosperous holiday season.
Yes. I know how you feel. I've learned that if a craft show just begs you to be part of their "fabulous" show, it probably is a good idea to stay home. Learned to watch kids closely as they can be destructive, and then there are the people who steal things...etc. etc. ect....
I totally the way you feel. I did one show that I thought had been advertised well (mistake) Few customers showed up. Did not even make enough to pay for the booth. They keep sending me applications, but I have not responded. Vent all you want. Hoping and praying you have a better day! Sending a cyber hug.
Sounds like you have every reason to be upset so I hope your vent helped, even if just a little.
Sending healing hugs your way.
I have a small craft fair at the end of the month. I have been working so hard for weeks - last night, I wondered if anyone would even realize how much work goes into getting ready for a fair. Hugs to you - I understand your venting!!! Laura
Sounds more like Market Days than a Craft Fair. Hope your next one is just for crafters!
Wow, sounds like they had way too much going on for a craft fair to survive.....Was it only one day? The should have had the craft fair one day by itself then the next day add the other stuff, at least you hard workers would have had one day to be focused on......so sorry this happened...
Vent away. I think you have a right to feel as you do. I'm so sorry. Can you mention nicely ( that you did not sell as much as you could have because of all the announcements and any other concerns you have? I'm sure you vendors make choices of where to sell your beautiful things. I admit, much as I love sharing the things I make, I can not sell them. I would be too upset with the same issues you have mentioned.
Sound like a bad day.. Do you need a hug..
I am so sorry it didn't go well for you. Hope you have better success in the future.
Yes the vendors make their day by paying good money for the sites.
The customers sound pretty typical of the ones I see at some of the stalls I have had.
Oh yes I forgot the parents who let their kids handle all your goods as well.
With sticky hands.......I had one parent leave my tent saying goodbye to her 4 year old that was hiding amongst my hanging scarves......I told her "I charge xtra to babysit"...she laughed, not knowing how serious I was....
So sorry...bummer of a day..
