Just TWO days until ICEAtlanta! -- Jenny and I have been working non-stop and we've completed our products, designed our display, and now for all the last minute details.

E.E. Cummings Inspired Glass Necklaces
Kaito looks like he's being helpful, but he's really just wanting me to let him out on the patio.
Here is our remaining To-Do list:
* Test out Square program to run cards
* Make small signs for table
* Finish up a few more remaining jewelry pieces
* Potentially photograph a couple products?
* Print newsletter sign-up sheet and bag inserts
* Pack everything up nice and neat!
* Put together fair essentials kit
* Pick up van, table, & our beloved MaieDae sign
* Spray paint mirror
* Maybe put together a little pizazz for the front of our table?
* Get change from the bank
* Buy snacks!
* Put together an inventory & pricing list
* Plan outfits!

Our load-in time for the show is at 8:00am Saturday morning, so we need to make sure everything is ready to go Friday. I've been working on compiling a "Craft Fair Essentials" kit to make sure we're not without anything we might really need!

Our kit will include:
* Cell phones & charger
* Extra Cash & Cash box
* Inventory List
* Our Square credit card runner
* All kinds of tape (scotch, duck tape, & floral tape for packaging)
* Business Cards
* Scissors, pens, pencils, highlighter, notepad
* Small nails, hammer, nail punch, staple gun
* Our packaging bags
* Calculator
* Clipboard
* Camera
* Lunch, Snacks, & Candy!
* Plastic bags
* Tissues, lip balm, sanitizer
* Craft fair directions & important info
* Dust pan

I think we've covered everything -- I think. Do you have any tips on important things to bring to a craft show??

Have I mentioned that I'm really excited? I'm REALLY excited!! I can't wait to set up our booth on Saturday morning, stand there along with all the other amazing vendors...and then wait for the doors to open! OMygahhh! We will be taking lots of pictures! So be on the lookout!


  1. I LOVE the "I carry your heart" necklace... my favourite poem. :)

  2. Oh this is so exciting!!! I can't wait to see pictures from your booth.

    I wish I had some more tips for you, but I haven't done a show yet. I'm already prepping for my first show in November though. I'm sure I can learn a lot from your first experience though!

    You are going to have the best day! :-)
