This past Saturday we squeezed in hosting a booth at our annual Christmas bazaar in our small town USA. It wasn't the easiest thing to do after unpacking my MIL's house the past two weeks. It felt more of a chore to endure, rather than to enjoy. Oh well, they do say that timing is everything.
Son Josh made his cinnamon ornaments, which smelled delightful, and lured folks over by following the delicious scent.
Friend Melody created her prim Christmas things. She's a demon with a can of spray paint! She made up kits of paper bag gingerbreadman garland. Josh and I made sure that we both brought home some to make up.
I made Christmas, sassy housewife, and Domestic Goddess cards, and decorated Christmas gift bags.
The crowd was much smaller than past years. The economy has been hit hard in small towns, and it was reflected by everyone's lack of sales.
It was fun, but we all felt that we did so much better at the county's annual Herbfest held in August. We've all decided to hold out and make one big showing next summer at that event.
We all made a little bit, but after the booth fee, we did not bring home much in cash. However, we did have great fun, swapping items between each other! We all went home happy, with great stuff, from each other's tables!
