Trinity Market Place

This weekend I had a show with the Trinity Market Place. I didn't really mention it beforehand because my family and I were sick with the flu this past week. I was really just relieved that I felt well enough to set up on Thursday and then participate on Friday and Saturday. This one was a smaller show than the one I did in December and I think that people's buying was also affected by the economy. But I was still able to sell some stuff and have a successful weekend! One of the best parts of the weekend was my neighboring booth. It was the nicest couple who sold these beautiful handmade wood pieces that the husband has been making since he's been retired. Mostly they sold cutting boards, but they also had lazy susans and trivets. They were all really, really beautiful. Not only were they really nice to talk to when things got slow, but they even gave me a free cutting board and fresh corn from their garden when the show was over! I'll have to take a picture of the cutting board to put up on here and I'll find out if they have a website. They were really just the nicest people!

For this show Walter and our friend, Jared, made a stand for me to display my tutus and the hooded towels I've started making. I really liked having it. I think we're going to add one more row of pegs to the top of the shorter stand so that I can hang the knit hats there. The rest of my display was pretty much the same as last time.

In two weeks I have another craft show, the NEACA spring craft show here in Huntsville. I think I'm going to have to take a break from Huntsville craft shows for a while. I don't want to saturate the market and I already had a few people tell me they got a tutu at my craft show in December!
