I look happy in these photos, but that just reflects my pride in my booth. Sales were a flop at the craft show this Saturday. I was sad about the turn out and even more disheartened about the lack of sales. People were interested, yes, and we received a lot of great feedback, but purse straps were held tightly.
At first I was afraid it was the birdhouses, or the prices, but after all the great comments and watching many other vendors go through the same thing, I realized it's just the current state of the economy. People are being very careful with their money and let's face it, a birdhouse doesn't fall in the "need" category for the average family!
I'm chalking this one up to experience and I feel good about what I've learned. I look forward to doing more craft shows because now I know I CAN do it! Next time we will choose one in a larger town, though.
