Opportunity to talk to potential clients, watching people, getting feedback.
Best show ever and why
Wheaten Boutique - Wheaten Terrier National Specialty - Lots of interested customers (couldn't keep my racks stocked!). Got a number of solid commission orders, and some ideas for new designs.
Worst show ever and why
A holiday event at a school over thanksgiving weekend - 3 day show (Friday, Saturday, Sunday). I think 5 people came to the show (not counting the vendors)... I think 2 vendors stopped by to chat. I didn't have that friday off from my day job, so I had to take an unpaid day... lost table cost, regular pay, no sales...
