Building pacificVintage ... It Ain't Easy

Sunday, May 20, 2012

Hello there!  Apologies up front for the two-week hiatus from blogging.  I've been busy juggling kids' schedules and husband schedules and not to mention my own.  We have trips coming up very soon and have been busy trying to get them together.  Not to mention Little Boy #1 has an extracurricular schedule that is off the map.  Besides all that, I am still trying to put some time into building my little Etsy shop and adding to the pieces offered for sale.  

The latest and greatest is I am having this gorgeous card design done by Vintage Sweet.  I love it and can't wait to get the final product.  The cost was $10 for Jessica to put this together for me.  The proof came really quickly, I had two options to choose from and once I get the final design, will send them off to Vista Print to get them done up nicely.  I'm going to go with stickers to use as labels for shipping, and will print more for calling cards as well as item tags.  

I had been thinking about taking my little bunch of wares and setting up a booth at our next neighborhood Farmer's Market or Craft Fair.  I thought that would be my avenue beyond Etsy.  Passively, I've been putting together the pieces in my mind that I'd need to set up shop: A banner, tables, a few vintage pieces for sale that are easy to carry (ha!) like a dresser and a chair, and the smaller things, like my spoon garden markers, my vintage dresser drawer garden kits, and glass doorknobs and vintage hardware.  Anyone with craft fair experience out there that wants to give a rookie some good advice?
