Ready or not....

..here we go!!! And I am SO ready! One last glimpse of some of the goodies that I'm selling at Junk Bonanza starting tomorrow!! I have shown lots of the art I'm selling, here are some fun supplies I will have on hand to sell. Everything is packed up and ready to go. Just doing some last minute preparations. Feeling nervous and excited. This will be my first time selling my work in person, outside of the internet. Yikes! I feel like my booth will definitely have the ArtsyMama vibe going on. I've even thought about what I want my booth to smell like. Am I crazy!?! I will give an update from the first day of the show tomorrow night. I promise to take lots of pictures. Wish me luck!

I look forward to hearing the scoop!

You do great!!!

Looks great! You'll be a hit at the bonanza. The top photo is even sort of black and cream like the swap theme! Good luck.

How exciting! My experience is that selling in person is never what you expect - I always sell the things I think nobody will like, and the items that I've stocked up on sit there unnoticed! It's great, though, to get the chance to interact with your customers and see what draws people to your work. Good luck, and have fun!

Just stopping in to whish you good luck on your exciting venture this weekend. I am impressed by how organized you have been in all your preparations. I know everyone will love your booth and all the wonderful things you are selling. By the way, I don't think it is weird that you are thinking about how you want your booth to smell. We used to do that at the retail shop I used to manage. You want to attract customers with all five of the senses. Will be checking back to see your pics of the show.

I heard good reports on your booth. I wanted to come really bad with a friend but I had to work at Scrapfest for 3 days.

Glad you did well. When do you go to Cape Cod?
