Holiday Expo

Hullo all! Sorry I've been AWOL, but I was in some major last minute crank these crafts out mode for the last two weeks before the Holiday Expo I participated in on Tuesday. I have a bunch of pictures to share what I made, but today I thought I'd just share a couple of pictures I took and a friend took of my table. :) I didn't too bad. The only table that really sold a TON was the lady selling scarfs that she imported from Ecuador. I didn't want to spend money on my table set up, so I just grabbed my green table cloth that I use for the holidays, a orange leaf serving tray to display my paper pumpkins and a small basket to hold the little candy pouches. I just whipped up a sign with the name of my Etsy shop in Word and put it in a frame I already had. I also managed to get my business cards all printed out too. Sweet :)

(Sidenote: The chocolate candy didn't sell, but that's okay, I'll just use it as small gifts for co-workers, and some little cousins and friend's children. :) )


  1. Ashley, everything looks great and your set up looks nice too...very clean! What was your best seller? I love how you have everything packaged up and how nice it looks. I'm sure you're happy it's done. Glad it was a good experience. =)

  2. Thanks ANITA!

    Actually my best sellers were my pumpkins (my boss bought 8 for her Thanksgiving dinner place settings) and the Magnetic notepads (one lady bought 5 for stocking stuffers)

    My team members also came and bought stuff from me - they bought both my hand stamped winter wishes card sets.

    I plan on putting some of the stuff I didn't sell up on Etsy and using the rest as gifts for people. :)

  3. Your table looked great! I'm so glad you sold some things! It's fun to make a profit from your labors of love, isn't it?

  4. Yes it was :) And it was nice because I was able to meet some other crafters that live in the general area that I do too... :)
