My First Craft Fair!Posted: 05/19/2012
I’m putting the finishing touches on my booth for tomorrow’s fair at San Pedro Square Market in San Jose. I’ve been working about 10 hours a day in my studio, and I have to admit my stock is pretty baller. I’ve had unicorn horns laying around for a while (from Halloween last year) but finally decided to make them to sell (pictured above). If you are in the South Bay and are not going to Maker Faire, please come by! It’s in a beautiful spot and you’ll get to meet me. Here’s a peak of the rest!
I made a number of banana puppets, and they all look a little different. This photo is from a photoshoot done by my friend Kelly, wherein we reenact “Charlie Bit My Finger”.
Pincushions, ranging from small to “fancy”. Most are from my space collection.
Triangle pendants (equilaterals not shown) with stars or more abstract designs. I did not make the actual pendants, just decorated them. I have glass and metal work on my long list of stuff I’d like to know how to do.
I’m not sure these are actually for sale… really just something I did to take a break from sewing. I just painted some little plastic animals and gave them eyes. You should do it! Easy and cheap.
This is how my booth will look, but under a tent, with a big green sign and outside. I hope to make it look less busy.
Using the multitude of scraps I had leftover from the big fruits, I made tiny “jingle berries” containing bells.
Wish me luck tomorrow. I’ve agonized over this and I know I’ve got my hopes too high. I need to tell myself that as long as I sell one thing, or if people like to look at my stuff, I’m going in the right direction.
