I hand-painted a sign for my space earlier in the week and it was definitely a good idea. I found that people were drawn to the sign and were more likely to visit my set-up.
I did the Legends of Arkansas festival earlier this year and I learned quickly that I was unprepared for selling in a festival setting. I added a clothing rack to display the shirts and the sign this time. I also made several more shirts.
I learned several things by looking at the booths of the old pros. Several of them used a metal wire grid to hang their shirts on. If we get a canopy, I'll probably invest in one of those. It looks a little more professional than my rack.
Lisa and I had a great day. Lots of friends stopped by and we had good sales all day long. I will definitely make more large and X-large shirts next time. I made several shirts and I based the sizes on what I have sold in the past. I've learned - the more shirts you have, the better.
I will definitely be doing this again next year. It was a great experience.
