Bazaar 101

Yesterday was the first time I participated in a Holiday Bazaar. This is what I learned...

1. Vendors buy from vendors

2. Bazaar vendors have the most amazing unique gifts

3. Patience

My first bazaar experience was nice, I had plenty of family there (as vendors) and the weather was cooperative.

I did learn that you have to be patient. My big sale didn't come until the tail end of the day.

The great news is, for everyone who couldn't make it...I have a lot of really cute things left to sell.

My reusable shopping bags...or book bags (whatever you want to use them for) got a lot of attention.

I have a few left...and these are some pictures. See if you can figure this one out...

I also did this new design--- I must say I do love this one. I think it's really pretty--- and like my original bag, don't forget I paint the bottom of them, so that it doesn't really matter where you put them down.
I also painted a few new designs for shirts, which eventually could be paintings as well.
I took the "Love Bug" which I painted for my friend Jessica (a fellow blogger) and added a friend and absolutely love the out come of this

I also took another painting I did for a nursery in
New Orleans and made this cute adventure on the high seas.

Another one of my new designs was this Dino...the Brontosaurus...and yes, I know that they found that the Brontosaurus did not exist, and that it was an Apatasaurus all along...but I still love Bronti.
There are plenty of other new designs, sunflowers, mermaids, a sun that turns into a glow-in-the-dark moon at night, and some strands of pearls to name a few.
You know how to get in touch with me if you are interested.


  1. I love that sailboat!! So cute! Perfect for a little one. :)

  2. You are so right! The few "shows" I've done most of the people that bought my book were other "sellers," interesting theory. xoxo


  3. Robin- yay! The next bag I am making is yours. I need to fill out an order form for you.

    SC- It is isn't it?! xoxo
