Holiday Craft Fair was awesome!

This is just a quick post to share some lovely visuals from Sweet Potato Seamstressing’s first ever craft fair! The craft fair was to benefit Malcolm X Elementary, and it was a huge success. Amanda and I had such a wonderful time meeting tons of great kids, parents, and holiday shoppers, as well as selling wallets, bow ties, pins, earrings, necklaces, and bags. Below are the best images of our display.

For this event we offered a new new items, specifically stud earrings made from vintage fabric, and heart pins with vintage fabric embellishments.

Amanda and I (But really, it was Amanda’s brilliant idea and I owe her all the credit) came up with the cutest bow tie tree for the festive holidays.  We will definitely be bringing the bow tie tree back.

Our passport sized strap wallets were a big hit at the craft fair. Definitely planning to bring them back again, so stay tuned.

I had way too much fun with our shopping bags, which contained helpful notes about how to dispose of them properly.

My friend Miah actually stamped the front of the bags for me which was so helpful and lovely.

Preparing for this little craft fair was a lot of work, but we’re ultimately happy with how our table turned out and we gained some great insights.  It was the perfect place to do more market research and get ideas.  Looking forward to the next event!
