First Show Jitters

Saturday, June 04, 2011

So it's now exactly one week until my first show that I'll be vending at and I'm feeling a little nervous...do I have enough books made? Will they be well received? Is my display plan ok? Maybe everyone goes through these sorts of questions in their heads before their first. I have about 20 books that I have not listed in my shop, hopefully a lot of those will sell, otherwise it will take me a month of Sundays to get 5 pictures of each one and make Etsy listings for them! I'm crazy mad for the fabric on my newest book pictured above, it looks like it could have been on a Fillmore concert poster back in the 60's or 70's.

I've also been making description tags for all the books that are going to the show, I had a pretty stamp made and I think it makes for a nice tag. On the backs I have spaces to fill in the page count, paper type, size and price.


I've recently registered to do my second Komen Race for the Cure in Cleveland and decided to do another breast cancer awareness book - it is definitely perfect for one that has or has had breast cancer. I've titled it "Hair Doesn't Make The Girl". I did list this one in my shop



Wishing everyone a fantastic weekend!

The air has filled me head-to-toe....at the Shores

Don't worry about the show, you'll do great. Your books all have so much character and are done beautifully. It shows that you love what you're doing. I'm just so proud of you.
