This was perhaps the most annoying booth display ever. It was a little bit windy that day, but nothing like some of the shows I've been to in the past. But the wind managed to knock over many of the products and the displays all day long. I don't know how many times I picked up the water bottles that day. The little box with the hairclips kept getting blown shut and the clips would fall off of it. The little tree with the necklaces got knocked off the table at least 3 times before I decided not to mess with it anymore. The clothes rack with the t-shirts on it ended up cracking at the base and all of the shirts fell off and the ground had all these foxtails on the ground, so I spent half the time picking foxtails off of the shirts. I moved around the bibs on the clothesline so I could have some space to hang up some of the t-shirts that had fallen in an attempt to make a sale. Then the wind blew the shirts into the back of the display and knocked over some more products. My husband showed up riding his motorcycle and then decided to sprawl out in the middle of the tent because it was the only shady spot there. What few people were there didn't want to come in because his feet were blocking the table. It was like watching a scene from the three stooges. I kept looking for the hidden cameras to come out and everyone would start laughing. I don't even remeber if I made my booth fee at this place. I don't think I'll be going back here again next year. Such is my life in the craft lane.
That isn't stopping me from doing more shows. I'll give it another shot at the Christmas in July show at the San Luis Rey Mission in Oceanside, Ca on July 14th and 15th. I will be doing this show with another lady. Hopefully I don't scare her away from craft shows. It will be the first time I share a booth with someone I don't really know. I shared a space with my cousin one time and she hasn't been back since. Se la vi.
Have a great week and remeber to keep it crafty.
