In it is a little ad for a "Holiday Craft Show" in November and gives information for vendors to sign up.
Usually I just flip through these flyers and don't think about it much, but this little ad caught my attention... And well... I'm sort of crazily thinking about getting a table... Maybe...
Here's what I would need, were I brave enough:
- $50 for space fee ($10 more if I want a table and chairs as well)
- A plethora of knits (and maybe patterns? and other crafties?)
- A few young, impressionable darling people to do my bidding and help out (and tie me to the table so I don't run away)
- WAY MORE nerves than I actually have
My cowardly side says "DANGER WILL ROBINSON! RUN AWAY". My business side says "Holy cow woman just do it, this could be a huge boost in exposure".
Granted, that only gives me two and a half-ish months to get a good amount of stuff knit up. And $50 extra to find since pulling it out of the business account would leave it a little tight unless I sell stuff in between now and registering (plus I'm sort of saving for a pattern charting program).
And I have no idea what kind of crowd this thing gets, since this is the first year I've heard of it. I'd hate to shell out that kind of money and have only 2 people walk through the door for the whole weekend.
Perhaps there is someone else local who would want to go halves on the fees and sell their stuff with me?
Arg. Indecision and nerves.
