This vendor traded one of her butterfly gourds for my beanie/neckwarmer sets for her son and a photographic bookmark. :-)
I was able to share a space beside some vendors I met during my December vending event, which was lovely. Such great company and I couldn't resist buying two of her limoncello cookies and chocolate brownie bites. My mom and I will definitely share those.
My vending goal is to still sale those items that I have made previously as well as add new items that are a part of my new style. After networking with fellow crafters and listening to what customers like I think I will also use vending as an opportunity to sale items that I might not necessarily put in my shop. Every crowd is different but I always like to get feedback so I know how to better market myself and what I make.
One of the highlights of Friday night was getting a chance to meet Jessica, who reigns all the way from China and had only been here for 4 days! Such an amazing sweet spirit. :-)

Another highlight of Friday night was getting an invitation from an arts council member to participate in a street festival next month. A lot of the customers and vendors say they will also be there and will look for us (my vending neighbors and myself). I have a lot of ideas now that I believe will help me along the vending way. But one thing I know for sure...I've got to get more organized to do this kind of work!
