Scenes from a fair!

Here are some pics from my first craft fair. It was at the Rome Art and Community Center http://www.romeart.org/. My dear husband was sweet to stay with me the whole day. From now on, I will probably let him go home after set-up until tear down. It just isn't easy to put up these tents alone. He even ended up helping other people with theirs even though this was his first time too.

Here is my booth in all its glory. Now that I see it from this perspective - it looks kind of bare. It seemed quite full when I was inside. Gotta work on my layout!

The grids worked great! They are very affordable and really easy to use. You can just fold them up still attached together for the next time. They are 6' tall though and required us to put down the front seat to fit them in.
All in all it was a nice day - met lots of people and many took my card. A few sales and some inquiries about portraits and such. I was ready to pack it in by 5:00 though! One more this weekend and that is probably my quota for a year.

Your paintings look fantastic!!!!! Glad that your experience was a good one. Your set up is very similar to my brother's scrimshaw display he uses. He has very large sign made up though with his name. (gallery name if you like) You could make something like that to so your name is "out there".

Thanks, Leola. I have a sign on order, but it hasn't come in yet. I should have gotten to it sooner -story of my life:)

I loved seeing your booth and how you displayed your art. It looks fabulous, and I like your name on the canopy. I'm sure it takes ALOT of time and hard work to set that all up. Hubby is a sweetheart for helping out, that's what they are there for!

Congratulations, and thanks for sharing with us!

Congratulations on your first show! I have done several table fairs, but never invested in the panels or a tent...mostly because the shows are just SO much work. I'm so envious of the energy you obviously have to pursue this sales venue!

Your booth looks great! Best wishes on your next weekend. It seems like a great way to get your work out there, sale or no sale!
