For the first time the University allowed us to unload and bring everything in the night before the show. It made things so much easier!
We didn't set out any product but got the booth up, the lights installed and all that needed to be done this morning was set out the product. Since we didn't have to get up at 5 am, the day is much shorter!
This is a smaller show - only two days - but a very nice venue. Although the Winter Garden has sky lights and normally gets a good natural light, today was very overcast and dreary. And then it started sleeting in the afternoon.
It didn't feel as busy to me and several other craftspeople commented that they felt there were fewer attendees as well. In the end my sales were 'ok'. Since this is a low cost show and local, sales can be less and still be ok. I was hoping to empty one box because there is one box more than will comfortably fit on the cart - but it doesn't look like that is going to happen.
