Description from Luv2bead - Little Chick: This past week has been very stressful because I've been preparing for today's craft show. I woke up at 6:00am (and I'm no early riser) to go set up. I was there six hours and I only sold 1 bracelet (and I'm surprised it even sold). I didn't even make enough to cover half of the booth space (which was $30.00). People looked said it was pretty and walked on by and that continued all day. Plus there wasn't even much traffic. It was a VERY depressing day!! :(

No new beads for me...

I hope next weeks craft show is MUCH better (by a lot)!!!!

    Thanks GemsChica Chick!!!! Nope, you didn’t offend at all!!! It was a some high school. I don’t think anyone did very well. If any did, it was few. It was also pretty small…

    My sympathies are with you, Little Chick. Last year I participated in a small craft show and sold zero, nada, zip. It is pretty disheartening to say the least. Probably all of us have had at least one show that bombed. You will do better next time cause you will have tons of good luck wishes from the Chickies. BTW, it isn’t your fault that so many people don’t recognize good quality when they see it. Hang in there. :)

    Soemtimes a show will be like that Nicole! I saw the pieces you have on the website, and although there are only a few so far, they are all Wonderful!

    Smoky Rose says:

    try not to get discouraged, Nicole. was your weather mild today, like ours was in PA? – that may have prevented people from getting into the Christmas shopping mood – and you know what they’re saying about the economy – a lot of folks are cutting back. some ladies said your pieces were pretty, which we all know be true… could well be that if times were different, they would have shopped like crazy on them! That doesn’t help you any, but just to say that it was no reflection on your work, I, and I’m sure all of us, are sure of that! Feel better, sweetheart!

    Sandra Martinez says:

    Also if it is not advertised the attendance is poor…and usually if the attendance is poor the show is a bomb….

  13. Mommykat Bubbly Chick
    Mommykat Bubbly Chick says:

    And never agree to be in a show that is advertised as a craft/flea market! People will expect CHEAP, and try to bargain!

    I only apply for hand made only juried shows…it keeps out the Chinese $3 bracelets!

    So sorry to hear about your show, Little Chick. Some of them are like that – imagine a 3 day show with lots of people, and I sold 1 bracelet, 1 pair of earrings, and 1 ring in 3 days! Plus, we got drenched both Saturday and Sunday afternoons, adding insult to injury..

    Hang in there! Your next show will be better, I promise! You do beautiful work, and it will be recognized and snapped up!

    Luv2bead - Little Chick says:

    Thanks girls!!! Actually it was really sunny and pretty warm yesterday!! Yeah, it also probably had to do with the economy. Even though it will be hard, I’m going to try not to make anything else this week because I have so much that it’s hard to find space to display it (and this coming week’s craft show will have less space). :D

    Lynn Eileen Chicky LE says:

    Nicole, I’m so sorry the show wasn’t a big success for you. Your jewelry is simply gorgeous!!! Perhaps the shoppers were looking for flea market items. Also, as the others have mentioned, the weather and the economy can play a factor. Keep trying, Little Chick!!! Remember, too, that craft shows may not turn out to be the best venue for your quality of work. Chicky hugs are being sent your way!!!
