I just woke up from my post-show nap and I'm still pretty tired.
The booth look great all loaded up with inventory, and my earrings hanging on their picture cards were a big hit.
I do think that people were hit with some sticker shock when they looked at my necklaces. This was definitely not the place for those pieces!
Mostly, what I moved were earrings and silk scarves: I sold 3 times what I expected for such a short, small event, and had a great time doing it. Sweet! (But, really, I didn't really know what to expect at all going into it.) Yesterday's crowd was a steady stream of buyers, while today's was a huge crowd of lookers - a completely different vibe. (I'm so grateful for yesterday's results!)
Saturday, my floor helper was friend, Debbie. She's funny and has a lot of retail experience, working in a local art gallery. Today's Gal Pal was pocketbook designer, Christie. Both spent a lot of time chatting up the customers, wearing the merchandise, and hawking it around the rest of the show.
I've got the show bug again so I'll be looking for future venues for sure. BUT, I'll also be hitting the gym - I was so out of shape, even for half-days. I really shouldn't have been this tired. Time to whip my ever-widening butt into shape!
