Earlier this month I got a note on my front door... my apartment complex was planning a Trade Show for it's residents. Well, now that I am a budding entrepreneur I got a little excited. I could use some practice for future shows, right? So, I went ahead and signed up. I continued to make and list yarn on my Etsy shop. And... I started labeling and packing up the yarn for the show. Here is a picture of me preparing for the show...
Everything was going smashingly! Until... the hour before the show... I was gathering all the goodies together when I decided I just wasn't going to go! I really freaked out! I mean who wants yarn? Won't people look at me like I am crazy? Then I remembered, I want yarn! I am crazy! So we packed up the truck and drove over to the gym where the show would be held. I was still totally freaked out! I set up my table and Spinderella (my wheel), of course. Here is a pic of the table with the yarn, fiber and candy all set up.
Now, the show was about to begin... I sat down and started spinning. Guess what? I felt completely relaxed! Just like always! And then a beautiful thing began happening... people came into the gym and walked directly to me! Oooh's and aaah's abounded! It was super fun! I didn't even care if I sold any yarn. It was just so fun to watch everyone get so excited about yarn! In the end I did sell a yarn to a lovely lady. She was purchasing for her daughter-in-law... a future fiberista! All in all, it was a great day! Can't wait for my next show!
