The show I did last weekend in Helen, Ga was the start of Octoberfest which is always a favorite festival for Helen. The show did not turn out to be as I had hoped. We were told 10,000 people would walk thru the show and I estimate about 2,000 did. Everyone was looking for a bargain. It was almost like a flea market in some areas. I had a good time and got some great compliments on my work but I only sold one piece. Considering the $150 fee to be in the show, staying over 2 nights and eatting out, my pocket took a huge hit. This is 2 shows in a row that have been bad for me. I think next year I may not do shows and just build up my inventory and my Etsy shop. I don't like that idea but I can't keep throwing money away. Many people at the show said they sold nothing. Maybe it is the economy or the uncertainty of the elections coming up. On a brighter note, I have Monday off. Don't know if I will play or sleep!
