    Last fair of the year

I heard a story from another vendor about a lady selling TOILET PAPER for $2/roll at their last show with a “cute” saying on them and the lady had cleared thru over 50 rolls! I was incredulous! No way that happened! I mentioned it to another vendor and she showed me this… This lady was selling them too! We got this sneaky pic…

    is usually Monday Inspiration but today I’m a bit under the weather and TIRED from the weekend. Hard workin! LOL! So I thought I’d show some tweaks I was “inspired” to make to my booth for this past weekend’s fair. I have one more before christmas so ALL HANDS ON DECK YO! I found these fabby yarn mats (hot pads???) at a second hand store for 69 cents each! I am in love with them!  They are uber thick and in the perfect cheery colors.

    Crafty Fair Weekend

    I had my first craft fair this weekend. I think I got myself overly worked up and probably annoyed alot of people close to me with my excessive thinking and such but it all worked out in the end.

I luvs me a good elephant ear! Or 2 🙂 I made back my booth fee but I think the best part of this is I made a couple connections and leads on other shows.…
