Finally, I have had my first vendor event for 2020. This one didn't get cancelled!
I had never been to this one before as I usually have an event in my hometown. They cancelled, so you know what? This one was so good, I just may not make it back to my hometown again --
This event is Friday afternoon thru Saturday night. They were kind enough to take me on Saturday only. Glad that was so, since it rained heavily Friday :)
The weather the last few weeks has been oppressively hot and humid. Saturday was not! It was in the high 70's with scattered clouds. Twas windy tho, as you can see by my billowing rugs. I ended up taking down the side curtain - it seemed to stress the canopy less that way.
Displaying my rugs was harder than normal. Some of my go to display items are in stores, so I had to improvise. The wind also made it harder to hang anything as it would just blow down.
In the end, I sold 6 tablerunners and 9 rugs. Like I said, good day! Even better, this was a no booth fee event this year....
I'm glad I was able to go this - it gave me an opportunity to unpack all the rugs and visually see what I have. They have been packed away in their rolling suitcases - I have a spreadsheet of what I have, but I'm a bit visual oriented making it easier to comprehend with my eyes.
What I discovered was that even tho my inventory $ amount is good, it seems alot of my rugs are on the larger size. I thought I had plenty of denim rugs, but most are 3x5 or larger. I have a nice amount of runner length rugs, too, in assorted colors.
The plan is now to make denim rugs - I had to order some warp last night and I can start sewing strips. I'll have to crack the whip and get my dad to cutting more! LOL
It is hard to believe that it is August already. Where has the year gone?
All for now,
