Long Weekend... Fun Times at the Fair!

Whew, I'm still recuperating from the Denver County Fair. It was great weekend! Between speed crafting, steampunks, cute critters and live music there was non-stop fun.
My mother helped me gather the best of our vintage crafting collection to spread the love around (and make space for more estate sale finds...)
I had prepared an entire herd of pincushions for the event, many went home to be someone's new crafting buddy, but many more will be going up in my Etsy shop soon!
It's easy to forget that a ten foot square is really not that big, but I managed to have lots and lots of bags displayed so people could easily find their favorite.
I have some brand new signs, but my old racks are starting to lean dangerously, so that's on my list of wants for the business. It's a little more stressful to be figuring out a set-up for four full days! I wanted it to be the best possible, so naturally I was tweaking and moving things the whole time... It was a good crowd, and I sold enough to cover the booth fee. I'm already looking forward to next year! Has anyone else been having a good time at local fairs?
