Art - August 11, 2013
Thanks to everyone for your good wishes and support!! The Taste of Edmonds Fair was another learning experience. Each one is different.
This fair was more like a carnival. We were next to a booth that sold fairy wings on one side. Every kid at the fair must have stopped there. Across from us was a large booth that sold lots of things made in a third world country including jewelry at give away prices (bracelets 3 for $5).
Just across the way a young lady was calling out to everyone passing by offering free samples of cinnamon roasted nuts. They were wonderful and I fell in love with them. She even gave us a bag to take home. However, she was difficult to compete with. Who wouldn't want a free sample. YUM!! So much for being in the Art and Craft section of the fair.
I don't think I'll try the Taste of Edmonds fair again. However, much was learned, I passed out lots of business cards and got lots of exposure. Hopefully my Etsy store will be busy this Christmas.
When all was said and done John and I gave ourselves pats on the back and agreed we had done a good job. Now for a rest and more research. I need to figure out what type of fair really fits my products.
HUMMMMMmmmmm Stay tuned....the adventure continues....I'm not giving up!!
