I’ve been super busy prepping for this craft fair I’m doing (NEXT WEEK!), and that I haven’t had much time for reading… so I’m still on The Hobbit.
But I do have some more photos of my prep work for you 🙂
Above are the rest of the display pieces that I’ve bought, a copper colored metal rack for my greeting cards (if they ever arrive, still haven’t shipping 🙁 ) and two metal trees to hold my bookmarks. The trees are going to be spray painted to match the greeting card rack and were de-christmas-ified. They had snow flakes and jingle bells that we removed.
The jingle bells were repurposed. I actually even went and bought more because I thought it would be a really good idea. I tied them with peach ribbon and I’ll either offer them free with purchase or just plain free and on my table to take. What do you think I should do?
Here’s the bells in a small copper colored bucket that I found cheap at Jo-Anns. I also bought a big ticket item – a large storage thing on wheels to store as much of the little stuff as possible and hopefully my stock too. It’ll be nice to just bring that and a box of bigger display stuff for the fair and not have a bunch of awkward bags or anything.
So, that’s what I’ve been up to lately. And The Hobbit has fallen by the wayside for now.. but I’m sure I’ll pick it up again sometime this week when the insanity dies down a little. 🙂
