A Whorl Wind of Activity
Some of the events were more successful than others. Simon Frasers week long event was my best seller and I sold more this year than last year. I had some slow days but overall sold many of my newely created and not photographed beadwoven necklaces and bracelets. Delbrook on the Sunday prior was also good as it was a very busy event. I have been told that it was even better on the Sat. I did not do so good at Abbotsford FM on the Sat so I guess I know where to go next year.
It was my first time attending the Abbotsford Craft Fair, this one has been running for 30 years and I expected that it would have a lot more traffic that it did. We were competing with the West Coast Show at the Tradex on the same weekend which had much more advertizing. I did sell one of my beadwoven pieces on the last day which cover the cost of the table but not much else.
I am already doing my research for next year and have my applications in for the Delbrook Rec Centre, unfortunately they only give jewelry vendors one day out of the 4, but it is better than nothing.
