I feel a little out of practice for this craft show business. It's been about two months since we've done any type of one at all, but it feels like even longer. I suppose it's rather like riding a bike. Down a big hill. With no helmet. It really sucks going UP the hill, getting ready for the descent but once you start heading down it's exhilarating and exciting and fast. But also a little reckless because you never know if the ride is going to be worth all your hard work and effort to get there.
So we have a smaller craft fair this weekend. I think it will be a good one to get us into the swing of things again. Then the next week is Thanksgiving. We opted not to do a fair that weekend because we're hosting the meal at our house and that just seemed like way too much work. But then the following weekend we have another, larger craft fair. Hopefully the ride downhill will be pleasant and completely worth the trek and climb we're working on going uphill right now.
I also would love to hear from all of you. I just had this idea. I always try to give out a business card when someone buys something from us at a craft fair. Do you think it would be a good idea to print out the address of this blog on the back? It's too late to put it on the front, and I don't think I'd want to do that anyway, but what do you think? It might help to get the word out, and might show potential return customers a little bit about how their favorite products come to be. Yes? No?
