To bad, That1girl. You do make such lovely things. Never doubt that. But I think it is allways so difficult to sell at craftshows. And I must admit, often when I am a costumer at craft-stands, I get so confused by having to choose among all those marvelous handmade things, that I end up buying nothing at all, or just one or two small thing. Maybee you could try selling at etsy instead - at least you wouldn't have to sit so many hours at a stand. But I haven't tried, so I really don't know if it is a good idea.

Aw that stinks that1girl.  Sad

Better luck next time? And may I second trying Etsy or  your local flea market or farmer's market? Hand made items tend to sell well at those places around here.

I really like your banner, that1girl. I've done the craft fair at my old church since i was a kid, and I've never had a ton of luck. But each year, as i get better with my crafts, i seem to do better. I love doing it, though. I do have an etsy, but i look forward to the craft fair every November. You'll have more luck (and so much fun) if you stick with it because you really do have great stuff to sell.

My Doctor Who swap partner received, so here are the items made from stash.
Dalek wristers:

And... even though this yarn is still pretty new, i bought it for the swap, so all the leftover is now technically stash... Right? Right. Anyway, i made my partner a pair of socks, and with the leftover, i made myself a pair. There want enough blue for a whole pair, so i used whore and black and added stripes. I plan on making a blue one so i can trade them out.

I love your Dr. Who knits!  I admire how you are able to do the count exactly right for the wording!

Bananaleg,  your Whovian knits are fab!
That1girl, I hope you have better luck at the craft shows. Your art is lovely. Btw, do you go to ENMU? I ask because I live in the area. Smiley
