view from my booth

indiesacramento 3/20/10, originally uploaded by neverfeltbetter.

saturday's craft show was a pleasant surprise! the crafting pendulum swung my way and i had a really nice day all around. packing light is key, and i brought my three best sellers which did well again. i love being able to pop up and break down in a flash but still feel like i had a full interesting table.

this next two weeks are all about making more to replenish my table stock and perhaps try out one more item on 2nd saturday craft shows, as a test. one thing that was apparent...the packaging for the soldered pendants was a great idea, as much as i wanted to avoid it. it's a trade off, with the packaging people pass on a paper bag. at least i reused all the little plastic bags i have collected over time. :)

i am having a love/hate relationship with sacramento's craft scene. on the one hand, i am really happy with *park your art* and that 2nd saturday in midtown scene. but something is missing...something is most definitely missing. i will have more thoughts on this missing link in upcoming posts; believe me the wheels are turning! i don't know if i can sit idly by all the while bitching and moaning about what sacramento does not have. i don't want to be part of the problem anymore!
