Visitation BVM Craft Fair - Nov 18 & 19, 2011

This was my first year at Visitation BVM's sale, and I have to admit I was a little overwhelmed! I went there Thursday night, expecting an 8 foot space, and it was closer to 10 or 12 foot! I had never had a space this large, and I didn't know where to start. I had a black cloth, which was great for an 8 foot table, but too small for the space I had, but my friend Judy came to the rescue and had a sheet for me to use, so that was perfect! Then I had the dilemma of how to set up the displays I use. Then I was afraid that I wasn't going to have enough to fill the space. But in the end I did fine. And then on Friday, they opened the doors....Oh my gosh, it was a so busy!!!! This is about an hour and a half in and the "slow time" of the night: Here's the left side of the table :

And the right side (this was later in the sale, because I didn't have room for the card boxes in the beginning!):

Looking down the aisle (with my beautiful assistant):

I had to take pictures from above because it got busy again. Post it note holders, and tablet holders, gift card holders, ribbon weave pins (or maybe these are the magnets), and a few post it note frames:

Post it note frames, snowman soup, ornament money holders:

Post it note frames ( I had to stay up half the night Friday night to make more of these, since most sold out the first night):

A few of the remaining mini snowman holders:

And some lip balm holders and Hand sanitizer holders, and altered Starbucks jars:

I had a fabulous, profitable time at Visitation's sale! I can't wait until next year!!!!! I have so many new ideas!!! Also at this sale, I was invited to be a vendor at St Sophia's sale NEXT November so I am super excited!!!

I started creating things for the two sales I had this year in JUNE. I was still creating right up until the night before. Since I have more sales next year, I think I will be starting in January!!!

Can you post a short tutorial on how you did the post it note holders? My daughter is scheduled to be in a craft show in a couple of weeks and she needs some smaller items to fill space and bring in people.
Any help you can offer would be appreciated. Thanks
