Oveido Craft Show

Well, we are back and have to say it wasn't too bad. The show was pretty good, very big and spread out. But the customers were not big buyers. It was outdoors and I don't think I want to do this one again. Its was so dusty and dirty. So many vendors, it was hard to get our booth packed up and out of there. We had to wait over 2hours to get our car up to the booth to load up.
But we met some nice people, Becky and Steve came and visited with us for awhile. Becky showed us the way to Walmart the night before the show. I forgot my camera, so I had to go buy another one.
Here are some pictures of our booth. It was a 10" x 10" , a bit cramped.

This was the table the tarts were set up on, it got so hot, some of the tarts started melting.

The best sellers were Snowman wreaths, snowmen and the dolls. And of course tarts did very well.
Haven't felt well the last 2 days, my stomach has been really hurting. Go see my doctor on Wednesday a nd get my blood checked again. We are off to Savannah on Thursday. Samantha and her Boyfriend Chris are taking me to set up. Hubby has work Thursday night, he will come up on Friday afternoon. Carmen is doing us a big favor and dogsitting for us. She will show up after I leave on Thursday and be gone before I get home. I won't ever get to see her this time.
But we plan on getting together for Christmas. Next year we hope to host an open house and decorate the house with all our homemades and have a big cookie exchange.
Well , better get back to work.


  1. great pictures of your booth! I would be totaly broke if I was able to shop at one of your shows! what kinda of camera did you buy at walmart? the pictures are so clear and the color is perfect!

  2. Sandy, Great Pic's of your booth. The open house thing sounds great. I've been to some of those and people showed up from everywhere. Hang in there you'll feel better soon. Hope to see you at the Jacksonville show over Thanksgiving weekend. Hugs, Melanie

  3. Open house for the public for all of us in blog land?

  4. Your booth looks fantastic! Glad the show was half decent for you. Craft shows can be a crap shoot these days. Sorry you aren't feeling well. Maybe a day or two of rest will help but definitely talk to your doc and see what he/she says. Take care.
