DONE! Exactly one week in advance!
This week is going to be sort of nuts. I'm going out three out of five weeknights and since Pehrspace(Craft) is on SATURDAY!!! I thought it'd be wise to kick my ass into high gear and be READY for the fair early. So I worked my tail off this weekend (in addition to spending HOURS out furniture shopping with boy, which I'll post about tomorrow!) and as of yesterday around 4pm I felt confident saying I was DONE preparing for the fair!
I have 135 items to sell. I have a table. I have appropriate jewelry displays and pricing signs. I AM DONE!
You already know about my earring displays, I made one more just the same way. I bought a FANTASTIC tree at an adorable little shop in Arroyo Grande for my necklaces. I'm using a mirror from Michaels to display beaded necklaces and odds and ends. All of the glassware and china used on the table is either from my collection or purchased at thrift of antique stores. The tags and pricing signs were all made by hand using scrapbook paper. I even have BAGS ready, red lunch style paper bags from Target. I've packed a wristlet in my box to use for cash and I have a cute little notebook that I got from a former Sampler box to use for record keeping. I have mini candy canes, people, I AM MORE THAN READY!
Any LA based readers, click the banner to the left for info on the fair. It'd be awesome to meet some blog friends there! This is my first fair so I'm freaking out a little and could use some friendly faces, but I do feel calmer now that I'm uber-prepared.
Fair veterans: What do you think of the setup? Any suggestions? Any last words of advice?
