First craft show of the season

As always, I get a bit anxious as craft show season approaches - and this year is no exception. Will the customers like my new pieces? Are my prices OK? Will I have enough inventory? Do I have enough change? and the list goes on and on and on.

The morning finally arrived for the show and I got up early to drive to Concord NH. I'd never done a show here before so I had no idea what to expect in terms of customer traffic, access to the arena or how many vendors. Fortunately, I allowed plenty of time and had my booth set up with 2 hours to spare before the show started. Thank goodness I had set everything up the week before in my living room and it all went smoothly.

This is a picture of my whole setup:

These are some of my new Infinity necklaces (still to be posted in my Etsy shop!)

And a close up of some of my sterling silver anklets:

And to round out the day, Jodi from Happy House Quilts stopped by and introduced herself. I love meeting members of our NH Street Team and we had a chance to chat for a few minutes - it's always fun putting faces and personalities to names from the web!

On to more shows - 1 down, 5 to go!!
