The Big Show!

After attending the New Hope's 35th Annual Holiday Marketplace as a buyer for several years, and trying out for the show, once, several years ago, I auditioned for this juried show again this year, was accepted and participated in the marketplace this weekend!!

I don't know how it happened, but I got a supremo position on the floor! The facility has a very large lobby section and a wide expanded hall down to the gym.  I was given the space that was at the end of the hall right between the two sets of doors leading into the gym!

To top that, I was adjacent to a second big glass entry to the outside.  Traffic Galore!  Also didn't have that 'squashed in' feeling being in a long row of vendors in the larger space.  Hoorah!

There was a spot light shining down onto my booth made it the focus at the end of the hall!  Even my son-in-law as impressed!  He said, "Finally after all these years, you've got an awesome space!"

Sales were good, and the administrators and volunteers at this show were so friendly and helpful! It was truly an awesome experience!  Thank you New Hope Community Church Women's Community!

I love it when a show comes together. Your booth looks great!Craft show horror stories are funny too (after..long after..) but not as fun to experience!
