Overpass Ceremony Craft Show
This past weekend I did a craft show in Moscow Mills, Missouri, which is close to my hometown. The reason for the craft show was for a new overpass ceremony. I was invited by the Chamber of Commerce in Moscow Mills. I really felt honored when I found out that I was invited to be a crafter for this show, mainly because I'm a small business and I don't have a Brick in Mortar nor am I in the phone book. I was told they found one of my business cards in a restaurant where I had them in a business card holder. I was really excited also because they were only inviting a limited number of jewelry designers. I bought a tent because I didn't have one and I knew I didn't want to stand in the sun. The only thing that was a pain was that there was a wind that kept blowing my displays over. I finally lost the battle and left them to lie flat on the table. In the afternoon the wind had almost died down and I was able to stand my necklace displays up. It turned out to be a pretty good craft show for me. I was also lucky enough to have a local boutique owner ask me if I would like to consign my jewelry in her shop. I thought that would be a great opportunity to be able to consign in another shop. So I do hope it will work out with her when she gets her shop open. Well here are a couple of pictures of me at the craft show. I really hate getting my picture taken because I think they always look bad.
