So Saturday I drove about an hour to get to the Trade Show. My Mom volunteered last minute to join me. I was soooo thankful for that! In the end, I think I would have been OK alone, but my Mom is much better at arranging the table, and I was glad to have her creativity :)
While the sale wasn't a total flop, I only made enough to cover my costs of being there. At least I didn't lose out! I'm glad I went, simply for the experience. I also had a great time chatting with my neighbor. She had her 6 week old daughter with her, so of course we naturally chatted about baby stuff. Turns out she's a baby wearer, and uses cloth diapers! She actually was my biggest sale too :)
I think I will try to do more trade shows in the future. This one was a new one, which may account for the fact that there wasn't a huge flow of traffic through the building.
