Craft Show Set Up 11/19/16

Hey everyone!  I'm sorry I'm so late with this video, it has been a crazy week!  This video is a short video of my craft show set up from last Saturday, 11/19/16.  This was a crazy busy show and sales were blown out of the water from any other craft show!

Below the video I will have photos of my booth, and I will also have a list of my top 10 sellers from this show as well.

I think this setup worked really well, and I loved having just one long continuous space instead of a smaller square area where people have to walk into it.  I think it really helped with sales, because if people see a booth is so crowded, they sometimes just keep going because they don't want to deal with it, so I think having a longer space really helped with that.

Other than that, our set up is pretty much the same with the crates and everything.

I have sold out of a few things, and I still have half of my shows to go!  Tonight I am going to make some more Mini Coffee Cups and Nugget Tins because I think this weekend might be a big shopping weekend with it being Black Friday today, and Small Business Saturday tomorrow.  I have a craft show on both Saturday and Sunday, so I'm going to make a little more product tonight.

Top Sellers

1.  Photo Holders
2.  Nugget Packs 
3.  Sticky Notes
4.  Tic Tacs
5.  Mini Tic Tacs
6.  Double Notepads
7.  Junior Legal Pads
8.  Mini Sticky Notes
9.  Tags
10.  Chiclets

Overall, I did really well at this show and I am so happy with it!  I will be back next week with a video and post for each of my craft shows for this coming weekend.  Let me know if you have any questions, enjoy!

love and hugs,

Christmas Treats Card With Stampin' Up!

Hey everyone, hope you had a great week!  I meant to make this card so long ago, but it's been a bit of a rough week, so I'm just getting around to it.  I'll post an update video hopefully next week some time explaining what's going on and how that will affect my videos and everything else.

Today I am here with a card for my friend that helps me with craft shows to put a few gift cards and some cash in for her.

Down below the video I will have a photo of the card, a list of dimensions, and a link to all the products used today.

Dapper Denim
8 1/2 x 5 1/2, scored at 4 1/4

Emerald Envy
5 3/8 x 4 1/8

I used the new Stitched Shapes Framlelits on this card, and I just love them so much!  I hope you love this card too, it is super simple but still so cute!  I will be back in a few days with another craft show recap video and post for you guys!  Happy crafting!

11.12.16 Craft Show Set Up

Hey everyone!  I am so sorry I'm here with this video so late, it was a crazy weekend and has been a busy week!  I had a little time this morning to get this post up for you!

Below is the short video of my craft show setup from this past Saturday.  Below the video I will have a short recap, and which items sold the best at this show.

This craft show was located in a small mall in Green Bay that typically has very, very little traffic.  The organizers of this show have about 4 craft shows at this mall every year, so they are well advertised and they bring in a good amount of traffic.  It isn't as busy as shows that are at schools and whatnot, so I didn't do as well at this show, but I still made more money than I would sitting at work!  I am doing 2 more shows at this location this year, and one of them is my last show of the season, so I will have a sale going on and am hoping to get rid of most of my stock at that show.

Top Sellers
1.  Mini Notebooks
2.  Cards Individual
3.  Mini Sticky Notes
4.  Hershey Bars
5.  Calendars

That is all I have for today!  If you have any questions, please feel free to ask!  I have a small fundraiser craft show this evening that I need to spend a good chunk of my day getting ready for, but I am hoping to film a card video for you guys to see later this week, hopefully I can get it all done!  Happy crafting!

11/5/16 Craft Show Recap

Happy Tuesday everyone!  I am back from vacation and have a quick post for you today!  I got back super late last night, but got up early today to run a few errands and get everything unpacked and get back into the swing of things!

I had a wonderful vacation, and did a whole lot of nothing!  It was wonderful to just relax for awhile, lay out in the sun, and eat and drink to my heart's content!  It will be something I need to do more often!

Today I am here to share a recap on my latest craft show that was this past Saturday, November 5th.  I unfortunately wasn't able to be there, but a few of my dear friends did it all for me!  Due to that, I won't have as much information to share with you as last time, this is basically just going to be the photos that my friend posted on Facebook, and a top sellers list based on my sales app.


First, I will share all the photos.  They are pretty self explanitory, so I won't caption them, but feel free to ask any questions if you have any!

Register System

In order to keep the best track of inventory and see how different things sell, I put all sales in my Square Register System.  Most people only use it for credit card sales, but I input every sale in there, so I know exactly what sold that day.  It is so simple to just run a report and I can see what the top sellers are without having to count all of my inventory.  I have the app on my phone, on my tablet, which we primarily use at the shows, and my friend also has the app on her phone in case we get super busy.  I suggest looking into Square if you are doing craft shows.

Top Sellers

I will list my Top 10 Sellers below here, starting with the best sellers on the top.

1.  Nugget Tins
2.  Nugget Packs
3.  Mini Coffee Cups
4.  8 Packs of Cards
5.  Junior Legal Pads
6.  Double Notepads
7.  Photo Holders
8.  Sticky Notes
9.  Individual Cards
10.  Tic Tacs

Overall Recap

My friends did an outstanding job getting everything set up and running this whole show themselves while I was over 2,000 miles away in another country!  I am so incredibly proud of how well they did!  Sales were higher than my last show, so I'm hoping that trend will continue as the Christmas season goes on!

I usually don't make any product between shows, I mass produce one time for a month or so straight, and use that product through the season for all of my shows.  However, my best friend who is my awesome set up and show helper, informed me that I am already running low on Mini Coffee Cups and Nugget Tins and we have only completed show 2 out of 10!  I will for sure be making more Mini Coffee Cups, possibly tomorrow, to have some more variety at my show for Saturday.

If you have any questions about this show or this post, please don't hesitate to ask!  I will hopefully have a new video up for you guys in a few days, and Sunday I will have a video and recap for this coming Saturday's craft show!  Happy Crafting!

love and hugs,

Gift Tins With Stampin' Up!

Hey everyone, I am here with a surprise video while I'm on vacation!  I hope you have had a great week so far!  Today I am sharing with you a project that I made for my friends doing my craft show for me while I'm gone.  I wanted to do a cute little gift, and I came up with these tins, which I think turned out super cute!

These are tins that I had gotten gift tags in at Target after Christmas last year, and I saved them, knowing they'd make a perfect gift package!

Under the video I will have a photo of these, and a link to all the products used today as well!

I just love how cute these turned out!  Let me know what you think of these, I want to know if you love them as much as I do!  I'll be back with more videos once I am back from vacation!  Happy crafting!
