Mother/Daughter Weekend.

There was a whole lot of mother/daughter bonding going on this weekend. In fact, I would call it the theme of the event for me. I spent more alone time with my Mom than I have years. This was nice, except for the being sick as a dog on Sunday part. The craft show day was cold and windy which was good for my sales but it didn't help my cold much to say the least. I'm still coughing up a storm and just hoping to make it through the day at work.


I had a lot of support from family and friends at this event which made it extra special for me. It's going to be a very Lenox Knits Christmas at the Barnitz household this year for sure. They are the amazingly supportive neighbors and old family friends that bought many gifts to exchange this year.

Lisa and her daughter were going to have to miss the show on Saturday so they came over the night before to get a advance show all to themselves. They had a lot of fun playing in my tubs and frolicking in the knitwear. Kennedy is an absolute doll and she is an excellent model too. I plan on having her do some modeling for me the next time I'm home for my Etsy shop.
I also made a surprising number of stranger sales which was encouraging. I got lots of compliments from Mom's friends but the rest of my sales were to the hip, discerning shoppers of Rolla like this pair here. They were my last customers of the day and two of my favorites. They are future mother and daughter in laws and they had a lot of fun picking out their scarves. They had a nice camaraderie and they let me take a picture with their chosen scarves.




I think that I will probably do this event next year as well. It's a nice change of pace from the indie shows I do and it was a good day for sales to boot. I can almost fit all of my inventory into one tub which is a first in awhile. You can tell that I have had things priced to move this year for sure.

Well congrats on your success Paige! I'm glad you had so much support from friends and family alike. Hopefully you get over that cold soon too.

I think I'm at that point too...pricing things to move. There just gets to be a point where you're just sick of looking at something, and you just have so much fun making more stuff. So what about the losses then? Great business model, eh?

Sounds like a very successful weekend. Not only on sales but on spending some time with your mom and meeting some wonderful people along the way. Too bad about the cold. I hope you're feeling better soon

Your things are beautiful! I think that those two are going to make a great mother in-law and daughter in-law. It isn't often that happens. Get well soon.

That's nice to have some happy customer photos to show us! Congrats on moving the inventory out the door. :)
