Preparation for holiday bazaar

It looks like the wedding Rush is over and my shop is slowing down a bit. 

In preparation to craft fair, I bought a greeting card stand! 

 I’m new to displaying my stuff so I figured this would be one of the easiest ways to add height and make it easily viewable.  Also, it’s helpful to me to see all the empty slots. It makes me want to fill them and helps me get motivated to create!  

Doing  this for the first time can be costly.I think there are many creative ways to not spend money but with a baby and other things going on, I’m not sure I’ll have time to think about display & making my stuff. Hopefully I can sell enough to make up for it.

Though, I’m thinking of this as an opportunity and not expecting to make a fortune. It would be a great learning experience to be able to see customers reactions and talk to them. I rarely get to do that online. 

Hopefully I like it enough to do it again next year and I would expect it to get easier and easier:)more updates to come…:)

Craft show!

 

So this year I applied to be a vendor at a local holiday bazaar, and I’m happy to announce that I’ve been accepted! YAY!!

I’ll be selling greeting cards and things I don’t normally sell in my shop to appeal to a different audience.

I’m so excited for this new opportunity and challenge. I rarely get to sell in person, and setting up a booth seems like a whole new art.
I’ll be busy getting ready for the next couple of months!

 

Here is the info: (actually not a craft show but a holiday bazaar)

Fall is here!

Can’t believe it’s fall!  I love this time of year. The weather is just right, and being able to enjoy a hot coffee in the morning is so relaxing.

And it’s finally getting nice enough to go on a stroll. A perk of living close to a river:)Nice walk along the river

September was a busy month for Bluefin Works.  Last year’s peak month was July, but this year, it looks like it is September. Not sure why…maybe off-season weddings are getting more popular? I’m certainly liking it. It feels a bit more relaxed that it is a bit more spread out.

Since I deal with events, think that it would be slower from here on this year up until march or so. Time to create new products, and really work on social media! Feel free to let me know if you have any ideas for new and fun party themes!
