Last Show of the Year Done.

I am not sure how it got to be this late in the year but the calender doesn’t lie. I have finished my last show of the year. I had a bigger booth than usual it was 10×20. Usually I want a 10×15 and have stuffed myself into a 10×10. The small booth is really to small but 10 x20 is huge. I also had to adhere to a strange rule, nothing above table height in the first 5 feet of the depth of the booth.  It is very restrictive.

When I first set up I had my long table on one end to define the booth and then put the small one at the other end.

This left the boot feeling wide open and not very inviting. I moved the small table to the make an L shape so I could stand behind it and needle felt some sheep and talk to customers.

It was more inviting to get people to stop and then they felt comfortable going  into the scarf and hat area of the booth.

Of course as soon as one person is in the booth looking at something others will join them. All in all it wasn’t a bad show.

The next couple of will fly by getting ready for Christmas ( how did the house get this messy) and having guests for Christmas (10) and then sorting things out afterwards in time for New Years.

So in case I don’t get another post in before Christmas I will wish you a Merry Christmas. If you don’t celebrate Christmas I hope you have a great time this holiday season no matter what you are doing or celebrating.

One last thing; as I was writting this post I got text from my some from the barn to say we have a new unexpected lamb.

    10 x 20 is really big and a challenge to get looking right! Well done.

    Love the joke.

    10×20 is a big space to fill. Looks like you did a good job. The lamb is really cute. Merry Christmas to you and yours, hope you have fun with the 10 (!) guests and forget about the cleaning :)

  5. Thank you ladies. and I am glad you liked my joke. its hard to get a good picture of lambs. they hover behind thier mom and tend to show you their tails.
    I have to clean it enough for people to be able to find theIr way to the table to eat.

  6. Have ewe-r self a Merry, Wool-y Christmas!
    And may dreams and inspiration keep the world spinning in the New Year 2013!
