My Trip to Carmens show last weekend.

HI,
Just wanted to share with you my trip my husband and I took to the Calico Springs arts and craft show this past weekend in Moultrie Georgia. Unfortunately, we got there a little late and she was almost completely sold out. The show opened at 9:00 and by 10:00 she was down to very little. She said that this was probably the best spring show she had ever done, several other vendors told her the same thing. Of course, their were also the vendors that didn't do so well . A lot of the same vendors you see year after year and they never seem to change their inventory. So its is no wonder they are not selling as well. My goal this is year to bring back some oldies and just update their look and lots of smaller priced items. She sells primitive dolls, and furniture. The other booths that did well sold prim furniture and clothing. So it sounds like people are still buying, but using cash, very little credit cards were used. Carmen told me that as soon as the show opened she was swamped, she was a little late getting set up and she said people were grabbing handfuls of her dolls, some weren't even priced yet. I know I had fun visiting with her in her booth and walking around the show. Didn't see a whole lot of new things, alot of outdoor spring items such birdhouse and benches seemed to be doing well. Hopefully she is sending me another pic, she is hoping the other one took before the battery died in the camera. So, it sounds like maybe the show season is off to a good start if you have the right items.
