I made it to the Front Page of Etsy



Wow, this is very exciting! I made it to the front page. And I was asleep when it happened! I found out after a bunch of other people, I didn't know they would automatically post about it on my Facebook page. Very way cool! I sold that wallet and two other items, which I have to get busy making. So looks like I know what I'll be doing for the next couple of nights!
I have been working like a fiend to get things made for the market. I want to buy some baskets for displaying all of my wallets and small zipper pouches. I am thinking about going to Ross to buy them, since they tend to have pretty good deals on baskets. I need shallow ones though, so we'll see what they have.
I have been doing a lot of research online about what to bring with me to a craft fair, and I've compiled a list from all of my reading and I'm going to repost it here. In case anybody else is interested in this information!
(A good website to refer to is www.festivalnet.com)
LIST

Chairs (foldable)
Tape
Safety Pins
Notebook and Pen

So far this is my list, I am sure it can be added to and I will try to add to it when I think of more items I would need. Oh and the Tent is pretty self explanatory, you wouldn't want to forget that!
