Great Lakes Rug Hook In ~

Susanne keeps her hook in small by design.  It is the same vendors each year and pretty much the same group of hookers.  She is so gracious and considers us family.  Isn't that sweet?

Of course I failed to take pictures other than a few of my booth.

I was pleased with my sales.  I sold very few of my silverplate items, but other items that don't normally sell well did.  When you vend, you just never know what will people will be buying.

Thanks so much for stopping by.
Pug hugs 😊

You did a great job displaying your items. Selling those items which don't move that fast is great me thinks. And you are so right, you just never know what is going to appeal to folks. When I vended I'd spend lots of time making things I was sure folks would buy but didn't. Yet things which I'd carried around for several shows did finally sell. But a sale is a sale, congrats!

I'm glad that you did well at your sale and that you are satisfied. I know you had fun being with like-minded people even though it was a small group.

It's impossible to read the buyer's mind. Maybe putting " Limited Edition" on items will make them want that item more because of its scarcity and the artist's label.

At any rate, your booth is well displayed. I'd love it if you would get someone to take a photo of you in your booth.

It's cold, breezy, and very damp here today. We're supposed to get rain until Friday. 😢

Hugs, Julia

Glad you did well with the sales. Everything looks perfect and perfectly displayed. you have me wanting to go down another rabbit hole. Old silverware boxes made into sewing chests???! What issue of the ATHA magazine was that in? I don't get it, but maybe I can hunt it down someplace. I've been working on converting a little travel jewelry box into a sewing kit but have a long way to go. And now I see this. You really are the ET...such a bad influence! ~Robin~

Lovely arrangement of sale items! Whatever piece you've managed to sell is a success.

I'm glad you had a good time at the hook-in, and did good on sales. I'm not sure I needed to see that stack of silverware boxes with the sign about using them for rug hooking tools. Why did that not ever cross my mind?! And my searches aren't bringing up much either. What issue of ATHA magazine was that in?

I personally prefer a smaller venue for gatherings, it really does make us feel more like kindred souls ~
