My Craft Show Lunch

Had fun participating in my first craft show in years and years. Overall it went well! The first day was reeeaaallllly slow so you can bet how happy I was when business picked up on day 2. WHEW! Unfortunately for me, there were 4 other huge bow vendors so alas, I didn't sell a single bow or headband, but I did sell lots of Easylunchboxes and was so excited to see other people excited about them too!

First off, here was my table at the show:


 A bunch of handmade items made years ago by myself and my friend Cat back when we made baby stuff and briefly did the craft show circuit. :) Shown here are knitted and sewn purses, scarves, kiddie bags and backpacks as well as toddler-sized hooded towels with matching bath mitts and washcloths. There are even a couple baby blankets on the lower shelf.


My Mix and Match Hairbows and Sporty Headbands. The Sporty Headbands are perfect for active girls because they just don't slip. They've been tested out repeatedly by my very own soccer-playing girls. Friday evening (the very same day of this craft show - yes I was beat by bedtime), we hosted a "Carbo-loading Pre-Soccer Tourney Party" for Big Sis' soccer team and fed 12 hungry girls lots of pasta and had lots of fun. The hubby and Big Sis planned games for them and capped off the evening with the 1999 Women's World Cup Team video from ESPN (Nine For IX: Exclusive Clip From 'The 99ers') and Oreo Cupcakes, of course! I thought the SportsBands would be a perfect little gift for the girls the next day and pretty much gave them all out. Let me tell ya, seeing the looks on those girls' faces as Big Sis handed them out after the first day of games was far better than selling them out at a craft show (though that would have been pretty cool too. haha). They were SO excited and it just put a big smile on my face to see that. :) You know what time it is now... time to make some more! ;)


Here's my random little gifts section. Magnetic picture frames and votive candle holders I've made and amassed over the years.


And the part I was most excited about: EasyLunchboxes kits along w/ extra cloth napkins for purchase. So glad these were a hit! :)


And finally, the lunch I packed for myself in my EasyLunchboxes, of course! But the funny thing is that I never got around to eating it. After pulling it out of my cooler so many times, I figured I'd just go ahead and save it for the next day and just used it as part of my display. :)

I agree with Jenn -- you are crazy talented! Love the ELB kits (and the headbands ... we can never have too many headbands around here!). Yummy looking lunch. :)
