ladies...this was a SMALL show for me! lol... It is nice when I don't have to set up for a big one!! It was pretty typical of a Spring show...slow, but I did sell and did make some money...and the purses were a hit! Didn't sell out (lol) and did come home with a couple that I've had my own eye on...like my peace purse, which is probably the one I'm going to use next! I was able to get a couple adult size sweatshirts also made to take, one design was the beach scene, and I added "Manistee Beach" to the bottem...the other was the morning glory design. I don't like to take orders...but came home with orders for more of the Manistee Beach sweatshirts...oh well...they will get them when I get them done! I didn't get a picture of the display of purses and sweatshirts with my table, because the lady next to me, didn't show up...so I waited until the show started...then S-P-R-E-A-D out into her space...using her table and put my purse display between the two spaces. It's always nice when you are next to the person who dosen't show...lol...but I've been doing shows long enough, to know that leaving a space empty isn't good. So, with the organizers permission...I got to spread! I posted a picture of my booth, with the soap, lotion, body sprays, linen sprays, candles, etc...but also will try to get you a link to my new blog that I have started as well. Hopefully, I can manage the link!

Great display - I would love to learn to do that, one day.

my advise...don't start! lol bath & body stuff is just too much fun to do! I've probably made everything you can think of...at least one time. Now, I just stick to the good sellers...soap, lotion (aka my Body Yogurt), body spray, linen spray, lip balm, solid lotion sticks, vacuum cleaner potpourri...shaving soap...still too much, but fun to do! Embroidery fits in well...I took a "leave of absence" in embroidery for about 10 years...then got back into it last fall....WHEN my new niece needed her first birthday bib....and AUNT KIM decided she needed a new embroidery machine...and it just happened all over again! Honestly, though...I think, well, I KNOW you would love making soap! You should really give that a try!!!!

yes...fall and Christmas are waaaayyy better for me, too. I only did this one because it was $10.00 a table...and went to a good cause, the wives of the local reserves. And...because I needed some motivation to "get it together" for my farmers markets! lol

kkcogle, did the precious baby outfit sell? I see it in the picture and it looks so cute. This does look like a lot of work to set up but I do hope it is worth all your sewing time and "show" time. Great picture. Sue

no...didn't sell the little outfit. I had a couple people look at it, but I put $14.00 on it (tried to recoupe all the $$$ I spent on all of those...lol) and they thought it was real cute. I plan on making a few more...hopefully with a few more shoppers I'll start selling them!
