Finally – I’m here to share with you some pictures from the Christmas Market last weekend, where I had a table.
It was lots of fun; I got to meet some lovely people, and made a new friend 🙂 It was fairly busy, which was good; because you really notice the slow times!
Here’s a picture of my table set-up; it was a smaller table than I’m used to (6 ft. vs. 8 ft.) so it looks a bit crowded!
The venue was fully booked, and there wasn’t even room for me to have my free-standing card rack – so up on the table rack they went! Guess what – my cards were my best seller of the day! I think having them on the table worked! 🙂
As you can see, I have my hand crafted items on the one side, then the packaged kits, stamp sets, ink pads, embellishments, etc. on the other. I thought it was very odd that my hand crafted items sold better than the packaged items – but I’ll just take that as a compliment! LOL
Here’s some close up pictures of some of my items;
I followed the tutorial from a fabulous U.K. demonstrator Linda Parker (she is an absolute genius with boxes & packaging!) for these luminaries – aren’t they gorgeous? I stamped the Wonderland trees in Versamark onto the Vellum cardstock, and embossed them with Silver Embossing Powder. The tops & bottoms of the luminaries are made from the beautiful Silver Foil Paper, and each has a battery operated tea light inside. I just had to take a picture with the lights off – the glow is fabulous! 🙂
These next items were a great seller – the Santa and Snowman Curvy Keepsake Boxes, filled with Lindt truffles!
Too cute, right?! Everyone who bought them had special plans; to hang them on their Christmas tree, to tuck them into stockings, and to put on their mantle with other holiday decorations. How great is that! I got more ideas from them 🙂
Rather than overload you with a ton of pictures all in one post, I’ll be back tomorrow with more pictures, okay? I hope you’ll be back, too!
Until then – happy stamping!
