Crafts Fair

The last sales event of the year was the Ecology Center's Crafts Fair in Berkeley. I attended two of these; I couldn't go to one due to rain.

Alas, no real sales action. What was interesting is that—at my booth at least—there didn't appear to be any real Christmas Shoppers. Very little gift-buying! This was contrary to what one might have expected (on the weekend before Christmas.) I sold many notecards, but as I've explained before, in relation to what they can be sold for, notecards are hardly worth the time and effort it takes to produce them. And the folks buying them seemed to be buying the cards for themselves.

I'm so sorry that you didn't sell as much as I had hoped! I did okay on some of my sales, but didn't make any of my "goals" for each show.

It's just the economy - our luck will turn around in 2010, right? (Fingers crossed)
