{update} our first craft show + booth pics

We just did our first craft show a couple weeks ago at the Spring Lake Yacht Club! We were invited by another Etsy shop owner who found our shop online. We only had 5 weeks to come up with the game plan- planning the layout and design of our booth, getting all the necessary materials, and sewing ALL our products!!!  It was so much work, but once everything was set up, it looked SO amazing! We were so appreciative of how accommodating those in charge were to our needs and desires! Such great people to work with! Here are some pictures of the booth all set up and ready for customers!

The show itself ended up not bringing in as many sales as we were hoping, but we met some wonderful vendors, and had a great first experience at the craft show! We learned so much about ourselves as women, and business owners. We also feel like we’re better prepared for another craft show now that we have the first one out of the way! And by far our favorite part was just seeing our booth all set up! It looked A-mazing!

Thank you to all of you for your support as we prepared for our first show! We appreciate your prayers and well-wishes, and even some visits from a few of you!
What are your favorite booths at craft shows? Ever done a craft show? How did it go?
