I was a vendor at another local craft show today. This one was at Vienna Gardens in Phelps, NY. I’ve been doing this one for several years. Sometimes I do really well at this one and sometimes it’s slow. They had twice the amount of vendor as they usually do (over 45) and it was a little busy at times, but slow for most of the day. Vienna Gardens is a senior living community, and it’s right on Main Street. They did have their sign out for about a month and advertised pretty well.
I didn’t do amazing today, but it was still worth the short trip there (just 10 minutes from home). I did start selling my Unpaper Towels before the show even opened. Other vendors were shopping before they opened the doors.
My washable & reusable swiffer replacement items were my biggest sellers at this one.
I brought my fleece scarves, hats and balaclavas to this show too, and sold a few of those.
I always bring my vinyl dog & cat placemats at this show too, they are regular sellers at this show.
A lot of people in this area have pets. We even saw a couple of really cute puppies today!
And of course, my candles. Sold some of these as well.
I did do better last year, but will probably still do this show again next year. I like the atmosphere in this one, they always have Christmas music playing during the show, they give you generous sized spaces, the booth fee is only $25, and of course, there are always really nice vendors! Met some super nice people!
Overall, I’m happy with how the show went today.
