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.
