Christmas Bazaar Re-Cap


Happy Sunday! Well, I survived the Christmas Bazaar, but just barely! lol! Let's just say I didn't unload the car when I got home and I was in bed asleep at 9:30! My cold had kicked into full force and I had a bright red nose and laryngitis, but it was still a lot of fun doing it with my friends Lori and Robyn. I really enjoyed meeting and talking to people all day...the old retailer and designer in me misses that part sometimes. Oh, and I also took advantage of a free health screening and got my cholesterol and blood pressure checked...all is good! lol!

I was pretty happy with what I sold, it added up for a lot of $2.50 items, but I still had a LOT left over. Guess I'll have lots of teacher gifts ready for my teacher friends and lots of candy treats to tie on my Christmas packgages for family and friends! lol! Here are some pictures of my items from the day.

Christmas cards, they sold very well along with all occasion cards too, (I sold about 50 of the 100 I took) and post-it note holders:


Jumbo paper clip bookmarks, also sold very well:


Binder clips and hanging frames with button magnets:


I had five different kinds of these precious ornmanets made from little metal containers that Lisa Pace taught on her 12 Days of Christmas blog and none of them sold for $4.00. They were my favorite items!


Snowman Kisses, sold two of these:


Snowmen Peppermint Patties, sold most of these:


Magic Reindeer Food, sold three of these I think:


Candy bar treats, sold several of each (too many left over, ugh!):


Set of Santa tags, had several different kinds of tags:


Once I've finished unpacking I'll dig out the things I purchased and show those to you! hee! hee! I'm looking forward to stamping "for fun" again, although I should think about stamp club/Christmas party coming up on Tuesday night, Christmas shopping (only about 1/2 done), wrapping gifts, and getting ready to leave town on Friday...yikes!

Hope y'all had a great weekend! Thanks so much for stopping by! Hugs and happy stamping!

Rest up and get well. You don't want to be sick for Christmas. These are all very cute and you invested a lot of time and energy into them. I'm glad to hear it went well. I did a few fairs this year and they were not as good as years past. I think people are just not buying.

Tara said...

I love your table...you set everything up so nicely! I think my favorites are the candy bars and the bookmark clips!! Glad you had fun! :) Wish I could've come to shop!

Take card of yourself!!!! Get Well!

OMGosh! I don't know what was more beautiful. Your merchandise or the booth set up itself! You have such a talent for "staging". It really makes a difference at a craft show. Gorgeous work! You hit a 10 again!

Marilyn said...

Oh my word Angie - the work that you went to and everything is so beautiful - isn't it amazing how the things you think will sell don't, and vice versa!! Same as at my class this weekend!! You make such fabulous stuff - everything is so creative and unique - that's what I love about your site!!

kathleenh said...

Oh my gosh, your set up for the craft fair looks amazing! So many great projects! I used to work the craft fair circuit and would scratch my head on what would sell and what wouldn't.

DizzieNoodle said...
