First Craft Show Of The Season: Reston Craft Market

I participated in my first craft show of the season, the Reston Craft Market at Lake Anne Plaza. There are over 60 talented artists signed up for the market this year! I was thrilled to be included with these wonderful artisans. Within minutes of the market opening, people started coming into my booth. From that point on, I had a steady stream of visitors throughout the day! I met some really wonderful people and sold over half of my inventory, doubling the goal I had hoped to reach!

My awesome husband once again helped me throughout the entire day! I hope he realizes how much I appreciate and value his help-I couldn't have done it without him! His birthday is this weekend, I'll have to make sure it is extra special!

I didn't get a chance to take many photos, but these will give you an idea of my booth. I like to create a welcoming space for my customers. A few of them commented that it has a very zen like feel to it!

So I will be spending all of my free time creating inventory for my next show in June. Can't think of a better way to spend my time!
