Back from the Flea Market!

Yesterday was my "big debut" (lol) at the Flea Market.. and I'm pleased to say it went well enough for me to get a table again next week. The Flea Market crowd is tough.. because they are mostly there looking for good deals, but I did sell an OK amount. I can't wait for craft show season! I passed out a lot of business cards and got a lot of great feedback about my items.

A promised... here are some (BAD) photos of my table at the flea market :) The lighting in there was so terrible!

A really crummy shot with flash...

and one more closeup

Here is my outfit!

I love bubble bead necklaces <3


So now I am going to work on next week :) The cupcake magnets I made were a huge hit, so I want to make more of those and more bow headbands as well.

By the way, in that second picture, is your hubby holding your son upside down? lol. I thought he was covering his face but then I thought those looked like legs! haha. Nice action shot ;)

I'm glad you did well. I bet you'd do well at a wake. Ok, well maybe not a wake, but I truly love all your stuff. Beautiful display even under the crappy lighting.
