HoneyCraft Recap

HoneyCraft Market, Woodstock IL, KimberlyAH, GalaxieSafari, handmade ValentinesMy third craft show is in the books and I still feel like a rookie. Everything went really smoothly and all. My table is simple so my trusty assistant and I have set-up down pat, but the week before the craft show was a bit crazy. Since I’m a huge procrastinator, I stressed over getting everything done and also making time for card and quote ideas that popped into my head at the very last minute. I had plenty of cards, and even enough quotes. And the Valentine puns were a hit. Someone called them “dad jokes” which I take as the highest compliment. HoneyCraft Market, Woodstock IL, KimberlyAH, GalaxieSafari, handmade Valentines, Displays2Go card displayI used a new card display so customers don’t have to rifle through a box to see all of the designs. It takes up quite a big section of the table, but cards are my thing, so…I think it’s real estate well spent. Before my next show, I need to play around with the display and my pricing signs. Simply Anderson laser cut wood origami cat necklace, HoneyCraft marketWhen Naoto wasn’t helping in the booth, he was shopping. He bought this sweet laser cut origami cat necklace for me from Simply Anderson. Isn’t it cute? img_7330And we got a set of these alpaca dryer balls to give to my parents. They are made of hand-felted alpaca fur (I don’t think fur is the right term?) and you toss them in the dryer with your clothes and they take away the static and reduce drying time by 25%. We got some at the December show and they really do work. The alpacas are raised in Harvard, Illinois on Argyll Farm.

HoneyCraft market, groundhog days, woodstock, ILThe best part for Naoto (besides the ramen dinner reward at the end of the day) was meeting the official groundhog of Woodstock’s Groundhog Days. He came to visit and check out the booths.

Thanks for having us again, HoneyCraft!

    I wish I lived closer to come to your shows! We have those alpaca dryer balls and you can put a few drops of essential oil on one of them to make your laundry smell great! The oil scent lasts for a couple of loads. : )
