It's hard to believe, but I have my second outdoor show of the year on Saturday. I feel like the first one was last weekend, but nope! It's already been a month. I've been a little quiet online this week, and it's because I'm strapped to my work table, churning out mass inventory to fill the tent. Sometimes I'm jealous of the people who sell furniture and the 4 items they bring, but then I think of the heavy lifting involved. Forget that.
I like having these summer shows because they're a kick in the pants to make new products. I've been too swamped with wedding orders to get anything else done for Little White Chapel (one of my customers has 10 bridesmaids!), but Oh Nostalgia is getting some much-needed love. These will hopefully be in the shop today or tomorrow:
I also busted out higher numbers of some bestsellers, including mix-n-match hair pins and tiny flower earrings:
It can be hard to know what will sell, but those hair pins have been on a roll at shows since last summer, so as long as people still want them, I'll still sell them.
Have you been making new goodies lately? Or prepping for a show? Or wondering why certain things sell in person and other things sell better online? Just when I think I've figured it out, people go and surprise me...
