Home from the show!

Well, I am back from California. It's nice to be home.

The show was a lot of fun although I didn't do as well as I had hoped. The fair was a mix of handmade, mass-produced and corporations, such as The New York Times trying to sell subscriptions. So probably not my ideal target market. But, I did see lots of family and friends and met some great people which made it worthwhile. I don't think I would do it again unless they changed the focus to handmade/arts & crafts or at least had a designated section. A few other handmade vendors that I talked to felt the same way.

There are more photos on my Flickr site.

It is so hard trying to find out what show work.
At least you can say, been there, done that...

Yup, you don't know until you try!

It was definitely more commercial this year than past years'. I wonder why? I think it's hard to find handmade, really, which is such a shame.

It was great to finally meet you though!
