My 3rd Boutique

For my table I found a a pretty lace like plastic table cloth to go over the cheap pink plastic ones I always use.
(feel free to click on any pic for detail!)

I had Scrapboxes, captured faeries, glittered Christmas trees, hair clips, magic wands, packets of custom glitter blend, Crowns, decorated votive holders, and pretty tags.
I made a custom blend of glitters and put them in a Sugar tin that regulary holds rinestones and jewels in my studio.
I had a sign in sheet for a chance to win one of my scrapboxes and displayed a working votive that I made using my glitters.
I'm holding a new crown that will be featured in my shop soon! And the gliterized christmas trees were a big hit!

This is what I won in the raffle! I'm really excited about the wine journal because it has useful tips, appetizer recipes with wine suggestions and a place to record your fave wines in the back!
The Boutique ran on this last Wed, from 9am-1pm. Some of the vendors were dissapointed of the lack of attendence. I admit that it was not as busy as last year, but I also took in affect that the fires have effected alot of life styles. I also noted that some of these vendors did not do any advertising of the boutique on their own.
Over all, I did fairly well. I sold more than I expected and aroused the interest in alot of people on what I can do in custom orders. I gave out lots of business cards and even gathered e-maill addy's for a drawing!
~The other super great thing is that I have a bunch of yummy's to upload into my shop instead of the usual one at a time as I make it -stuff.
My goal for my next boutique is to have things to be seen at eye level. I have to figure out how and what. Either way I'm learning and always look forward to the next one. I'm glad I only do this a few times a year otherwise one could go crazy if they did this for a living!

I'm glad that you did well. It sounds like you met a lot of new potential customers. I'm so sorry I missed it. I've been super busy and just couldn't get down there. We'll have to meet up some other time.

Plans to visit your boutique went to worms. Next year. I'm glad you did so well. Your table looks pretty and inviting. A nice mix of items. And thanks for stopping by Trails End today with some nice words. I'd of thought you'd be veggin' out after all of that.
