Tomofair 2014

Hello everyone!

Last week I had my very first experience with selling my handmade cuties to people I don’t actually know! I joined a crafts group called Tegendraads a while back and last week it was finally time for Tomofair ^_^ We had the cutest little stand and I had lots of fun getting to know the other girls (two of them I already knew, but the other two were new to me, besides what contact we’d had on the crew forum)

Pretty much every dealer in the room had a boatload of cute with them at a rather low price. So a lot of people came by to look, but business seemed a little slow. Despite that, I believe I’ve done pretty well and I can’t wait for the next Tegendraads stand ^_^

Not much more to say about it all, really, so here are some pictures:

There were some gaps because one of the members was a bit late. Sadly, I didn’t take any more pictures of the stand after she arrived >_<

I love the Jellyfish Tamara made

Can you spot my work? ^_~

For now, it will be a while before we get to another convention. Probably somewhere at the beginning of next year we will be able to have a stand again. In the meantime, I can work on getting some stock (which turned out to be a bit harder than I’d imagined, it takes a whole lot of crochet to fill a stand ^_^”)

Have you ever sold your handmade items at a fair or convention? If so, share your experience in the comments ^_^

Cheers, Lydia
