More Show Fun

Last week was a bit of a rush! I was slammed with orders (thank you universe!) and had a two day show this weekend. The show went very well (thank you universe again!) and I survived.

My Booth

I sold the pink flower dangly bracelet I was so proud of to a nice lady from out of town. This one and a matching necklace and earrings replaced it in short order. The orange lilies are Saskatchewan’s provincial flower and I mixed it with some bronze pearls, white slice bead flowers, leaf slices, amber faceted glass and the brass wire I’m having a ball with.

The Bracelet On

The show I did this weekend was the 35th annual Swift Current Gun & Hobby Spring Show. To say that I don’t do guns might be the understatement of the year so I was a little concerned about doing the show. It turns out that half the exhibition hall is setup like a flea market and there are all sorts of crafts, vintage and antique dealers and general collectibles selling going on. On top of that there is fair food. All in all, not a bad way to spend the weekend.

Cowboy Action Shooters

These are Granny Oakley and Greybeard of the Cowboy Action Shooters. They were at the show in period costume to highlight the nearby historical village. They had fabulous costumers with so much attention to detail and graciously let me be all tourist and shoot a picture of them.

Now that Monday has arrived it’s back to the regular schedule and building up stock for my 3 large shows in late May and June!

    It’s great to hear someone say that they had a good show. Kudos! I like your display a lot, and your work is beautiful as always.

    Thanks Jackie!

    Wish I could say all my shows are financial winners as well as fun! Some are more profitable or better organized or more pleasant than others. This one worked out on pretty much everything except the hobby portion is laid out like a swap meet / flea market so the tables are all together. My displays are very flexible but some of my neighbours were squashed.
