The AlleyCats Meow

January 9, 2012

Alright so I made the decision late last week that I was going to be a vendor at the Spring Made By Hand Show at the International Center this coming spring.

For years I have been told that I should be selling the things that I make as they are some of the warmest/cutest/interesting things and that I should sell them. Some people insist that I could make some decent money on the side with what I make.

So, given my goal of bringing my business of crafts up off the ground, when another local Artisan friend of mine mentioned this show I thought what the hell why not. Worst I will do is make back the money that I spend on the booth and call it a day. She however is one of those people who insist that i should sell my wares and is willing to help me through the process of doing this show. You can check out her awesome jewelry here

That being said I have jumped on the making stuff roll and have crocheted myself up four fuzzy scarves and a pair of laced half gloves to sell. Going to work on the laced half gloves this week. My friend says I should have at least 100 items to sell. That being said that is 95 more to go.

Heres a tentative list of thing I will have for sale, feel free to let me know if there is anything else you folks thing I should add.

-Scarves (Fluffy kind, lacy kind, normal straight kind)
-Page boy hats (like the ones I made the girls years ago)
-Shawls (like the ones I made for the ladies for christmas this year)
-Laced Half gloves
-Ponchos (adults and kids)
-Mini animals
-I will also have a few full sized throws on for sale but focusing more on the accessories as the throws.

That being said I will be a very busy person in the coming months.

Until tomorrow…
