my first craft fair!

if you are looking for abc's of hair's letter x, scroll down :)
august has been a very busy month.
partly because i have been preparing and making items for my first craft fair!
on saturday i set up a tent and set up my stuff. so so fun.
sadly it wasn't super successful.
what can i say. i live in idaho. there were not many customers.
but it was still a fun adventure for me to set up some of my work!
for those of you who don't know, i sell a lot of my work at my shop called lulu's little loft.
today i will be adding a BUNCH of new stuff, so check it out!

thank you for all of you who helped me in this endeavor.
1. my mommy.
holy cow. she did a lot. came from utah, brought the canopy, tables, easels, tablecloths, lanterns, chairs, etc. she stayed with me the whole day. not to mention her car broke down on the way here. she is the most selfless person i know. i love you momma.
2. my hubby.
he was such a great support. check out the picture of us below! he kept telling me he was proud of me :) he also stayed the entire day. he's a sweetheart. i love him.
3. ed.
my mom's boyfriend from high school...how fun. he helped a ton with pricing, carrying items in & out. PLUS he went and picked up my mom when her car broke down and put all the supplies in his car. PLUS PLUS! he was my first customer of the day :) thanks a bunch ed.
4. my groupies.
those who couldn't be there but supported me anyhow.
sissy & pops to name a few
and those who came to say hey.
aunt nae, uncle ryan, tradder, & sam.

thanks for helping me out!

wanna see some PICTURES!

see how cute he is! that's my man.

i love this one. we wanted to keep it for ourselves!

these are BARROX shirts. my hubby owns a shirt company and makes some amazing designs. he did it in high school, but recently reopened the company. so inventory is limited! if you want one, check out his site and buy some stylin' shirts asap!! or you can check out the barrox facebook page to vote on designs you'd like to see on a shirt.

happy monday!


  1. Wow! Look at you, I think it is great that you did your first fair. How cool. And team Lauryn were amazing. Good luck with your wares :)

  2. I so admire you for doing this! I've kind of fiddled with the idea of opening an etsy shop or starting to go to crafty fairs/farmer's markets, but I'm too afraid! I think it's still a big accomplishment even if you didn't make many sales! Way to go for you! Your husband is right. It is something to be proud of! Thanks for sharing. :)

    P.S. I love how you say "Plus plus." Doubling the word is a nice transition method. I do it too, but have never known anyone else to do it! :)

  3. That is so awesome girl! I've always wanted to do a craft fair....but I have a real hard time consolidating all of the various things i like to create into something marketable to sell. Seriously though...this was inspiring :)Go you!

  4. I love all of these things! So cute!

  5. Looks nice! We all have good and bad craft show experiences! I need to get a tent! lol

    Stopping by from the Motivate Me Monday blog Hop! Take care!


  6. thanks for linking to Take-A-Look Tuesday - I just featured you on my FB page!

  7. Your set up looks great! Congratulations on your first show, it is a lot of work! It gets easier as you do more and you also learn so much every time.

  8. Your booth looks great! My mom and I do craft fairs together. We rarely make more than what we put into it but we always always have a blast!

  9. That is awesome way to go! I just saw you on take a look tuesday and was curious to see how it went! Love the pictures and am about to go check out the tshirts! :) Bummer you didn't think it was super successful but you were obviously very successful in setting up the cutest craft fair tent I've ever seen!

  10. Great job! What courage it takes to do this! It looks like you have an awesome family to support you.
    I am following your blog now and can't wait to see the stuff you create. I love those little birdies!
    I would love a follow back if you have time. COme visit me at www.cookieandclaire.blogspot.com

  12. Awh that is SO cool that you got to be part of an art fair! I LOVE all of your stuff---and now I am just realizing you have an etsy shop oohhh nooo I might be in trouble because I was just thinking I would love a lot of those beauties in my house :o) well thanks for linking up again this week----I am so glad I am getting to know you a better via the link ups! :o) You are one talented gal! And how cool is your husband?! I think if my husband could print shirts I would be keeping him veryyyy busy!!!!
