My Booth

The sale day has come and gone. My booth looked decent - ha ha....but after seeing Quilt Market pictures....well, you know.
Here is my booth.

I have a window area - which I used as a wall, at least as much as I could. I hung a quilt as a backdrop and put some paintings in the window.  I had a rack full of quilts too. There are even two on the table under the quilt rack. You may notice some open space on the table in the center.  I used that space to lay out my bookmarks.
  It was a beautiful day, in fact too beautiful for most people to be shopping. After several cold days, today was warm and sunny. So along with the not so great economy the weather and other events in town, sales were down this year.  I have lots of note cards left. Several of the bookmarks are left and a number of the quilts are still with me.  (Hey, I could do a trunk show!)  Anyway, I made my booth rental and some profit.  I even sold a small painting to a lovely lady who said "I think I just have to have this."  So I am happy.  Tired? Yes, but happy.  I suspect I will be listing some things on Etsy.

Sorry the turnout was a bit disappointing. Your display looks wonderful, though, and I'm sure it was very attractive to those who did attend.

Your booth really did look inviting. Sales of everything has been down lately. You just never know with sales if it will be a good day or bad. If you made your rent and still a little profit, you probably did better than most people!
