I did my very first art and craft fair this past weekend. It was part of a fundraiser for a local Taiko drumming group. I paid for a booth space and 15% of my earnings went to the drumming group. It was a small group of 15 artists/crafters.
Here's what my table looked like
The show was attended by mostly family and friends of the artists and
the drumming group, but people were Christmas shopping! Adjusting for
the booth fee and the 15% that went toward the Taiko group, I made just
under $500! Pretty darn good! I had fun.
The CP soap cupcakes (upper right), MP teeth soap and MP soap shots
(upper left) got a lot of attention. A few got sold. By far, people
bought the bar soaps, then the lip butters. I think people were just
unfamiliar with body butters/solid lotions, so less of those were sold.
Now I have some space to make more soap!!
