Our First Craft Show!

L-R - Maika, Julia and Chantal

The three of us were preparing for weeks for our first craft show.  We were nervous - would people come - and anxious - would people buy our products?  We needn't have worried ..... The people came and the people bought!

We were really pleased with our first try at a craft show.  We'd been given pocket money to buy lunch by one of our husbands so, armed with food, drinks and, most importantly, our crafts, we headed to Mississauga early on Saturday 20th November.  We set up our stall and tweaked and adjusted to make it all look lovely, and we were delighted with how it looked. We had lots of compliments as we arranged it all, and even more compliments when we put on our uniforms!  We all had dressed in cream turtlenecks and jeans and we had matching aprons to complete the look.  

There were some other nice stalls there - and a super bakery from Etobicoke called "More than Pies" who kindly gave us some of their products to try.  Their ginger cookies and butter tart squares were amazing!

Since our first experience is now behind us we are looking forward to planning to participate at more shows and have already started work on replenishing our stock.
