It got cancelled. Some politics between the organizer and the community association. Oh, well. Like I said, I rarely do well at them (but there's always the hope!!). I found out yesterday morning, and yesterday afternoon got a text from a friend suffering from ear infections (yes, two) saying thanks again for the magic bag because it's really helping and she doesn't know how anyone lives without one. That was nice to get just when I was bummed about selling my stuff. A reminder that they are a great product, and that there are other outlets for selling them.
|The first ones I ever made.|
And then today! Today I got an order from Ambassador Coffee for a bunch of coffee cozies to sell in their newly renovated boutique shop out east. Very cool. I'm glad there are places that are interested in selling locally handmade goods.
|I'm pretty sure they make your coffee taste better.|
I'm checking out Etsy as a place to host my shop. Do any of you sell on Etsy or buy stuff through there? I have bought a few things and quite like it. The idea of people finding me when they want what I have to offer is a big pull, rather than me trying to find places to sell. Just thinking it through at this point. I'll let you know when I'm ready to launch.
