Weekends seem to fill up with little booths popping up around town, each filled with interesting wares and goods that the maker has lovingly designed.
I'll be at the Shawnee Town Craft Fair this Saturday (September 20th) from 9-4, which will mark my 4th year doing this event. If you're in the Kansas City area, stop by and say hi!
The majority of my evenings and weekends seem to have been spent prepping for this event. I've even enlisted the help of my mom who always comes through with helping me package and then is my favorite sidekick the day of the show.
This year I'll be introducing a headband bar! Now people will be able to purchase either a packaged headband or create their own by selecting the color band they like and then different buds. It's something I've been wanting to incorporate for a while now, so I'm excited it finally came together.
I'm in the home stretch now. I get so nervous before these types of things. That's why it's so nice to have my mom there to buy me ice cream if things aren't going well:) Hopefully the weather will hold out, and it will be a beautiful day.
Check out last year's craft shows here and here, and read about my thoughts on success here.
Do you have any craft fairs or street festivals you like to visit each year?
