Photos from Christmas Craft Fairs - November 2017

Hello friends!

As promised - photos from the two community Christmas Craft Fairs I participated in last month. Here they are.

Afton Community Centre Christmas Craft Fair - New Dominion, PEI
November 18th

I had two tables filled with carpet bags, fur totes, envelope purses, a few scarves, Celtic Knot jewelry, initial pendants, and other beaded necklaces and earrings. Some of my carpet bags hung on my floor candelabra. 

And, yes, that is my white kitchen chair sitting on the table. It provides height and creative interest for displaying my wares. I do have twinkle lights on the candelabra but hadn't turned them on when the photo was taken.
Fur totes and envelope purses displayed in decorative boxes.

My initial pendants (sold here in my Etsy shop) are displayed in egg cartons spray-painted in robin's egg blue that sit inside an elegant floral box.  Two layers of egg cartons fit perfectly and provide a convenient and smart way of transporting and displaying my hand lettered ink and watercolor initial pendants. The pendants are laid out alphabetically (except for X & Z, which I don't have at this time) with spares beneath. The crystal bowl to the left of the box holds my business cards.
You'll notice I have a bird cage sitting here with a large red bow atop and a sign that reads - "complimentary gift wrapping for your jewelry purchases." If you remember a previous post about making tiny felt purses with button closures (see that post here), I made several more, plus larger ones for the Celtic Knot necklaces and other beaded jewelry. The bird cage came in handy to display and hold them all! Handmade earrings hang on the three-tiered bird bath.
And this photo shows the end of the second table where Dolly sits showcasing my floral brooches and other necklaces.

The photos below are from the
Milton Community Hall Christmas Craft Fair - N. Milton, PEI
November 25th

I had one eight-foot table this time so creativity was key in organizing and fitting everything on this smaller booth.

At the far right, Dolly marks the end of my booth.
