I just finished a three-day weekend of my first big (translation:  pricier-booth-rental-but-thousands-of-visitors-coming-through) craft show!  I was a vendor at the Dalplex Christmas Craft Market.  It was a lot of fun having a booth space (8 ft. by 10 ft.) in which to spread out my products.  I had a general layout idea in my head,… Continue reading Dalplex Christmas Craft Market – My First Big Craft Show!
