Last Friday, I did my first craft show of the year. I thought I would show a few photos of my display.
Before Christmas, I noticed at busy shows that my soaps were getting a little man-handled. The brown paper packaging was my attempt to protect the soap but I actually really like the look. The brown paper is the perfect background for the bird stamp. When possible, I am recycling/upcycling brown paper. On top of each soap pile is a little sample, available for smelling. It should be noted that children love, I mean, love smelling soap.
For months, various friends have recommended placing a little dish of coffee beans on my table as a way to cleanse the sense of smell for those who like to smell all the soaps numerous times before making their decision. It was a great idea but each show, my table would remain bean-less. . . until last Friday. maybe I was just waiting for the perfect little blue cup.
My favourite addition to my table is my new chalkboard mirror. New to me, that is. The mirror is a $10 find from a local thrift store. A couple of coats of paint, some chalkboard paint and a little swipe of sandpaper. (More to come on the process at a later date.) Have I mentioned how much I love this mirror? Held up by my vintage suitcases, of course.
