Saturday morning I woke before the sun.
I had claimed a spot by the highway to set up
On comming traffic heading to the Sea-Food Fest would spot
my table quickly.
I managed to slurp one cup of coffee and then set up.
I was also prepared by way of reading material
to keep myself entertained while I waited for the
crowds of people that were to come!
I could not have asked for better weather!!
It was cool and a breeze.
That breeze it what did me in later how-ever.
These were made last year as well.. more on the blue/spring side
|Just another view of some last year stuff|
|I'm not sure what the deal is with the side view but you can see the halloweeny witchy shoes|
and some other black and scary stuff
|Another weird side view of a print I put together|
|I am sorry for the side view... your going to get a crick in your neck..|
I love this print and the saying. As you can see I adore glitter and more glitter
|This is more like it..one of my halloweeny ideas..dollar tree spanish moss...fuufuu yarn and black ribbon and |
those dazzling looking skulls!!
|The black angel says "don't let my looks fool you I'm a total bitch!"|
I embelished with plastic bugs..dotted black ribbon and more feathers from the
Dollar tree. The candles came from the store buck store too.
|Three views of a bottle I embellished. I love the skull|
corkscrew! You can see the sweet black torn materail used as a ribbon.
The broach was a sweet cheap dollar tree find.. I think it was a pin
at one time..
|I loved this...but the wind snatched it and crashed it to the ground.|
The glass is thin but it was sooo pretty!! I used torn segmants of sheer
organza material left over from a wedding project. Beatiful as ribbon and
so cocoa shabby!
|Another crick your neck picture!! It says "Witches adore Pink."|
I made a pink glitter witch hat for her and embellished with fake bugs
and ofcourse pink/purple glitter
|a last yer project...the book is about Vampires ofcourse!|
|a bit crocket looking but it is unique. cool to look at|
|she reads..."damn right I'm the bitch of the day"|
|prayer candles all doozied up in black ribbon and spooky clipart|
|last years embellished book..one of my most fave prints|
|my poor candy apples...I kept the bags open so peoples could pull the apples out and see how cute and fake!|

|Sorry folks but I love this b.tchy witch!! I made her a hat too!|

|embellished books I bought for .25 last year ..the pen is so cute.|

|I love this darling ... made from a xmas card and embellished to the max book mark|
|last year project|
Well after all!! of this... guess what!!! I did not sell ONE item...NO Not One!!!
I blame it on the fact that I should have rented a more strategic location...Flea-Mall??
The wind hurt me because she kept knocking some of my stuff around and I ended up
losing one of my fave peices to the wind. I packed up after that.
I did not get devasted about the lack of response...(5 people pulled in and pulled out without ever
getting out of their car!!). Oh well
I realalize my goods need a more permanent spot for exposure and without the elements and damage
incurred from packing and repacking stuff. I was tired but...not totally discouraged.
I did not stay as long either because I knew most people in the afternoon would
be broke from buying at the sea-food fest. I took this as a learing experience.
However...do any of ya'll have any suggestions? I am open to any input you wish to
share...good or bad...
