|Setting up my table for the Croton Spring Arts Fair yesterday|
Here I am setting up the table for my second craft fair! It was yesterday in a Croton-on-Hudson park. What a beautiful setting and a beautiful day for a fair. One note to all of you who are are new (like me) to the craft fair circuit, be sure to have wind proof set-ups. Displays and even tents went flying in yesterday's wind.
And just like they say, each time you set up your table or booth it does seem to get easier. I think you are more organized and a lot more confident that it will all work out. Of course the best part of the fair is meeting other crafters and several "etsyites" too. I even reconnected with a jewelry maker from the fair I attended last weekend.
Another fun part was the giveaway contest I had. I ran a drawing with a simple entry blank and picked one name to receive one of my bracelet kits. It is a good talking point when people come to your table and just filling out the entry slip gives them a chance to spend some time with you and look at what you have. Not to mention, the contact list you build!
For this fair, I made a few more bracelet kits including one Tropical Pink Bracelet Kit, which I just listed on my Etsy site. Also I crafted some black beads and combined them with beads made from the pages of my French grammar book from many years ago. I think this bracelet has a completely different look made this way. It is listed as Vintage French Language Book Bracelet.

Later this week, I will be participating in an Earth Day Fair for the local school. I will be leading a workshop for middle school students, teaching them how to make paper beads. Sounds like fun, doesn't it!
Talk to you all soon,
