Well another show is over, this was the big one! Three days, thousands of visitors and a huge site to fill! Somewhat intimidating!! But all went well, most of my plans worked out on setup, unfortunately by the end of the 2nd day I had realised that people were just not coming into my site, many just standing outside and looking in. And many didn't seem to realise that I actually had bears there, even with all the signage. Very odd.
Upon talking to one of the organisers I find that the most successful sites really throw the product in your face. People want to know in the first 2 seconds what you are selling or they just don't bother. So I guess my lounge idea didn't go so well. Nevermind, it gave me ideas for next year.
Plus I also made 5 bears over the weekend. I sold more than enough to cover my costs and make a tidy profit too, it was just a bit disheartening sitting there all Sunday with people just walking straight past!
I got to spend all day saturday with my friend Veronika, felting, eating and chatting, so that was great, and actually was my best selling day so we weren't scaring people off! lol
Anyway, here are some pics of my newest bears, before the show, hope you like them!
Had to have a Santa Bear for my Christmas Theme shelf!
Needed another cake bear in my Delectables range!
And this fine fellow was created at the Midwinter Show, took me the whole weekend as he was so big! Very happy with him tho, although my knitting once again leaves a lot to be desired! :o)
Thanks for checking in again, I will have some nice new photos for you again soon I am sure! And please visit my 'sister site' for my reborn babies. http://www.sugarbabiesnz.blogspot.com/
