The Customers "Got It"

This past weekend was the antique show.  I was a bit worried about the type of inventory I was taking and if anyone would "get it" and if the other vendors would appreciate it.   If you remember, I was doing a vintage "crafting" supplies theme I called "bits and pieces."   The same type of items I will have for sale in the retail space of my classroom and studio at The Hobby Farm.

Yep, customers "got it" and I even sold some to the other vendors - win/win.  






I didn't realize that the email I sent to the promoter was going to be reprinted word for word...in the Auction Action News...but, it was great!  I had people coming up to me asking..."was this the quilt from Iowa?"  So, I guess they read the article.  I didn't read it - until after I had so many questions about the Iowa quilt pieces.  Thanks Audre' for that and the awesome show this past weekend.  

My little business purchased 5 tickets and randomly handed them out in the long line of customers waiting to come in to the show.  I gave the first person in line one - as I loved all the freebies I got when I was first in line at Junk Bonanza.  This type of organic advertising is how I have been building my business this past year.  I plan to "keep grinding it..." as one of my customers put it...I had no idea what she meant when she said that to me on Sunday...I had her explain it...LOL

Your and Lisa's booth was WONDERFUL Jacky! Loved so many things....and you are always so reasonably priced... That is so refreshing. I did a little more damage than I should have....(Ya know...I don't get out much, and when I do, watch out!) So glad you and Lisa are helping me out with getting my treasures all together.... ;o) Thanks again Sweetpea...I owe ya!! ~Robin~
