my first craft fair!

Hello!  I haven't posted since the first of July!  Mostly I've been getting ready for my first craft fair.  It's the Craft, Gift and Rubber Stamp Expo at the Blaisdell Center Hawaii Suite on Sunday, July 26th from 9 am to 3 pm.  Free admission too so if you're in the area, stop by and say hello!  It's never too early to shop for Xmas, is it?  Plus I'll have my used stamps and dies for sale as well so lots of good deals.

Here are some photos of some of the items I'll have at the fair.

Sterling silver earrings. 

Sterling silver necklaces.  I've sort of given them names or titles, I suppose. 

Sterling silver bracelets.

Some sewing stuff like these quilted potholders.  I was really ambitious at first and thought I could make like 25!  But I stopped at 10.  Those are some muslin bags and I used some heat bond to adhere the word joy (Lawn Fawn die).  Dies cut fabric!

Here are a ton of magnetic clothespins and yes, they are priced at a $1 per package which is like super cheap in my opinion.  Hubby's idea but I think I better stick to my own ideas about pricing or everything is gonna end up being a dollar.

I'll also have some crafty supplies like these clothespins.  I have them in white, pink, silver & gold and each package of ten is only $1.  I have some other items I'll share later.

Also brought in these super cute gold plated copper earrings.  More like fashion jewelry but I love that they are small and cute.  I just finished putting all of these together tonight with the help of my daughter.  She actually packed up a lot of the items to sell so she is a big help.  My youngest one actually counted out all the clothespins too.  Had to double check his counting!

I'll also have some handstamped metal key chains and bookmarks and lots of handmade cards, of course.  Hopefully, everything will fit on one table.

Thanks so much for stopping by!

Good luck and hope to see some pictures!
