It went really well, we were surprised to find that we did better on the second day than we did on the first. A number of other bear makers found the same thing. Very odd, but a nice surprise as I had thought we were in for a very slow Sunday by the end of Saturday. I made a nice little wad of cash, more than covered everything and Veronika and I had a great time mucking about and crafting away!
Here you can see my table:
So that's the Hamilton Show over for one year. Next is the Midwinter Show in Auckland in July and then Dunkleys in Hamilton in August. Once again I met some wonderful people at the show, and many familiar faces. The more shows I do the better I get at picking the bear artists and their work. Was good to see some new sellers but the show wasn't as good as it could have been so not sure if they will be back next year. It's a bit disheartening for your first show to run at a loss, at least for me I live there so I had no extra expenses for that one.
Auckland was great last year so I have my fingers crossed for that one, and Dunkleys is a huge show and my first time there. Trying not to stress over that one yet!
Ok, that's it from me. Until I have new bears to show, although at the moment I am working on some reborn babies! (You might have to look it up if you don't know what those are!)
