In a week I'm going to be selling my handspun at a booth.  It isn't a craft fair, exactly, more like a historical days thing my city has once a year.  I'm quite nervous about it and whether I will sell anything.  The local quilt guild is selling there, so I know I won't be the only craft seller.     
I was wondering if any of you had advice for selling at a booth.  Good ways to arrange, catch people's eyes, etc.
<3 Thanks!

Good idea, thanks!  I've got some hats I've made.  Only problem is that its been getting up to the 90s (F) and wool will be a little hot.  I was also thinking of actually spinning while I sat there to draw in attention.

Thanks!  I've been preparing like mad, and hope it will go okay.  I'm crossing my fingers that it won't be too hot that day.  Wink
