My First Show

I had my first show yesterday and although it was a slow day, it was a success! I got some excellent feedback and my mittens were a hit.

The show was called Handmade NW 2008 Fall Artisans Fair at Montgomery Park in Portland. There were about 20 vendors and we were set up in the atrium of the building.

We had all applied to be in the Crafty Wonderland Colossal Holiday Sale and are anxiously awaiting the email that tells us if we are in or not. I guess that is the motherload of all indi holiday sales in the area. I'm crossing my fingers that I will get a favorable email soon!!!
