Well it was a success. I have so much fun at this show and when I get home I have to start all over again. A good thing for sure.

There were so many people purchasing food this year. Across from me a lady does nothing but beans. ( spill the beans is her company name ) she packages them in cellophane and recipe on how to make pea soup or hummus ect. She almost sold out. The chocolate people the same thing. Maple syrup as well. I saw a few wooden signs walking around like " man's den " you know silly sayings on wood. Potpourri was still hot. The lady beside me sold all kinds of little kids bibs and toutous (spelling? ) and YES even adult bibs. LOL Mostly sport or hunting related. The people behind me do metal yard works. They sold very well. I'm not sure this helps anyone but it kinda gives you an idea of where to start. I sold out of the stress bubbles. I think it was Eileen that posted them? Sorry if it wasn't but I'm thinking it is??? LOL I did 20 of them and sold them for $2.00 each. Thank you again for sharing! I changed the picture to just bubbles so it was for any occasion. I didn't take a picture :0(
Out of 8 dozen light bulbs I came home with just over 2 dozen. :0) Most of my gourds have gone to a good home now. I think I came home with 4 canteen and one snowman I call Whistling Willy. He was meant to live with us this winter I guess. Anyway, I have a few more shows to do so I have better get onto the business of stocking back up. Good luck everyone on your sales. Please post and let us know how your doing.

Yep, those are my bubbles. Someome else posted first but they had a long poem so I shortened it. So glad you sold them. You could do for Christmas too with a cute graphic....or anytime really.

Thank you so much! I'm going to "borrow" the bubble idea, it may just be the ticket to some laughs that are needed desperately at work!!!

Thanks so much for reposting the stress bubble idea. That is such a cute idea when you need to cheer people up! I just bought a ton of bubble wrap for packaging up Christmas gifts, so I will use some of that. I love all of your gourds!! They are so neat and such an original idea. If you get a chance in between preparing for your next few shows, I would love to see a picture of the snowman gourd. Good luck on your next show!

Thanks Everyone! I love this time of year for the shows and people. It's even started snowing here the past few days so it's beginning to look a lot like Christmas everywhere you go! LOL

Nicole Willy just loves being home I guess? I may make some changes to him but I will see? Not sure. Here is a picture of him.

Glad your show was a success! I have also found that all of the food items sell really well. I've seen them close their booths a couple of hours early because they sold out of everything.
