I went to my first craft show in quite some time as a customer this past weekend. The Handmade Faire show was held in Waretown, NJ and the first impression of the show was...I So Want To Do This Show Next Year!!!
There were 20+ members of the Etsy NJ street team selling at the show and the show's promoter... AbbieRoad.etsy.com (please go visit her shop!) did a wonderful job of selecting a wide variety of vendors and the quality of the items were among the best I've seen in recent memory at a south NJ show.
The layout was great, the turnout seemed to be steady during the time I was there and of course the Etsy members were very friendly. It was a lot of fun to meet many Etsy members that I previously only met through the site forums, such as SeahorseDesigns, NiftyPear and so many others. It was also great to say Hi to old friends like South Pacific Body and Little Pies again
The show was the first annual and I can't wait for next year's show...
Now I need to go promote and list a few new creations....I have to pay for everything I bought at the show yesterday...LOL
