Findlay Show

spring-09-5After setting up in the rain, Saturday dawned cool but rain free. All in all it was a wonderful day for a craft show. And, as ready as I thought I was, I still wasn’t ready for all the Early Bird shoppers that arrived before the show ‘officially’ opened. Business was brisk even before I was totally set up. I got to see many regulars as well as lots of new faces. Although I now have a shop, this show is just too much fun to miss.

spring-09-6Brand new for the show and the shop are some silicone dipped light bulbs. Each one is hand dipped here in Ohio and in addition to great primitive colors, are all fragrant. My favorites are the Cinnamon and the Praline. We also have Clove, Butterscotch and Coffee. Each package contains two bulbs and refresher oil.

By the same company are the popular mini Rice Lights with each bulb hand dipped in silicone. The 140 light strands are awsome!! We sold lots of these in 20, 50 and the 140 light strands. We also sold quite a few of the Primitive Potpourri Treen Trays. These trays are oval treen trays with a strand of the 20 mini lights and filled with a scented primitive potpourri mix. These are really cool and come in black, red and mustard.

Brown was the favorite color closely followed by burgundy. Look for our ad for these in Country Sampler this month.

We also sold lots of candles. Surprisingly, the ever popular Buckeye was not the favorite. Our new Snickerdoodle came out on top with Cinnamon Latte and Peony not far behind. Now that things are settling down we will get back into more fragrance testing.
