I filled a card table top and three feet of a six foot table with doll outfits, scarves I knit, and some little bags I made last year, the kind you tuck into your purse with a tube of lipstick and your sewing kit inside.
I sold a few things in the morning, but lots of people were looking and not buying. We figured they were scoping out the place and making mental lists. Carol had her earrings and necklaces, some pretty cowl scarves she knitted, and she made a bunch of American Girl doll mitten sets plus some scarves and hats.
|Our models... We had to pin a tag on the dolls saying "Dolls not for sale"! Check out the leopard mittens on the doll's hand, and the matching vest on the table. Yep, we sold ALL of those!|
I started out with a sixteen inch by sixteen inch by 14 inch deep basket full of items. I came back with about 25% of what I took. I am a happy person! I also got two inquiries from people who want to commission special items... and several questions about where I will be next. (We'll see about that!)
The weirdest thing to me was that these little Christmas dresses didn't sell. I guess little girls and their moms/grammas were looking for full skirts? Or maybe long sleeves since it was SO COLD on Saturday! So these little gems came home with me.
Carol sold two pairs of earrings and two scarves in addition to her mittens.
I hope she will forgive me for doing well...
