Setting up a booth at Cedar Ridge!

I'm so excited!  Do you sometimes feel like your going somewhere but really you're going nowhere?  That's how I'm feeling about my website ~ this June my website will be open for a year and I haven't sold as much as I would have liked.  Don't get me wrong ~ Yes I have sold some things, and I'm very appreciative to the people that have bought from me.  But I need something more, I have never sold at a craft sale and I'm not sure I really want to ~  it really seems like a lot of work. I've tried many times to sell my wares at various craft or prim shops and have been turned down for some reason or another.  Not any more!
I found a shop not far from where I live that would love to have my creations in their shop. I Thank them for allowing me this opportunity, and I pray that everything goes well.
Yesterday I set up my display at Cedar Ridge Crafts & Gifts in Neenah, WI
The store is located at 1195 W. Winneconne Ave.   Neenah, WI 54956

We had to bring in our own displays racks with certain dimensions. (depending where you are located in the shop)  My dear sweet husband built me a display rack out of a cedar fence section.
 This is what it looked liked when I started to unpack ~ while I waited for Barbara to print out the UPC  labels for all my creations.
Oh what fun!

 Here is what it looked like after the very nice gal that works at the shop helped me set it all up.
(sorry I forgot your name)
Here's a couple close ups.
I think it turned out great!  What do you think? 
Yes I'm still glowing and the best thing ~ I sold some items before I even got it all set up.
I better get back to crafting I have a lot to make!
Until next time Happy Crafting!
Hope the sun is shining your way!
Prim Blessings!
Robin

Robin, your booth is BEAUTIFUL! What a good idea with the cedar fence! Love the displaying and all your designs!!!
You've inspired me! I moving into a booth at our antique/craft mall this weekend. I am not where near ready so it may take me a few days to get settled in.
I believe you will do very well!!

Robin, how exciting!! You are very right about craft shows being LOTS of work!! But to be able to drop your things off and reap the rewards is great!! Good luck, everything is so darn cute!

Congrats Robin! I love your Booth. How exciting. Im new to this blogging thing so Im hoping I got it right :) I wish you all the luck. Craft shows are a ton of work but having a booth where you can display for a longer period of time is so much better. You have so many cute things and should do very well.

Oh, Robin! It's absolutely darling! It's so hard to find a good place to be...Congrats on your new place...As far as craft shows go, it's hit and miss and lots of work...It's hard to cover all your bases and internet shops...I've done some shows the past couple of years and it's been so so...So keep up the good work, Laura
