My Fabulous Fair Day & maybe the start of a business!

Eight hours on I am still buzzing at how my first shot at selling my own creations went... I went with no expectations and I am so proud to say it was a hit!
I went with about 33 items and sold about 20 (and counting)! Take a look at what it all looked like ;-)

And here's our little stall, like I had mentioned in my previous post I shared a stall with a extremely talented friend. My condition to share a stall with her was that she stick with girls clothes and I do the boys. And it worked really well. There was no competition between us and the collections actually complimented each other. We were also super lucky to be out on the verandah as the space inside was crazy busy with stalls and we had room to wander and hang our little clothes line :)

love the lace style fabric!

So anyway it was a fabulous first experience for me and I will be back... actually I have already semi committed to the christmas art and craft fair in two weeks! YIKES better get sewing... again!
And who know this could just be the start of a wee business for me. Hurray! 
Enjoy the rest of your weekend.

  4. Wow, congratulations! Selling over half your stock in your first stall!! You must be stoked.

  5. Congratulations!
    Your stache tops are terrific and I bet they'd go down well in larger sizes too.

  6. I LOVE the boys clothes - having a boy myself. Can you buy these online (I'm a hopeles sewer). I love your blog, think I'll follow!
