Great American Wine Festival, Dunkirk, NY

Well, the first sales event of the year is over. This past weekend was a hot one in Chautauqua County. I wasn't bothered much by the flies at the fairgrounds so I'm thankful for that. The setup was long and so was the take down but not as long as the two days sitting in the heat! Anyway, here's what my booth looked like this year.


I was able to sell my Victorian-era papers here. I had fan greeting cards, note cards, bookmarks, and knob notes (door hanging signs)

The silhouette shade in the background was noticed by some as well as the suncatchers and gylcerin soaps.
A lot of people commented on the hand sewn Victorian shades in the right back corner.
Teapot lamps always bring a smile to faces.
Now, time for vacation!

Great American Wine Festival, Dunkirk, NY

Had our first day of the Wine Festival today. Lots and lots of peoples...unfortunately not lots and lots of sales but tomorrow is another day!
I really like having a 10'x10' space as I can put all my products out and there is still room to walk around.

Great American Wine Festival, Dunkirk, NY

Getting ready to sell at Great American Wine Festival in Dunkirk, NY at the Chautauqua County Fairgrounds. This will be the second year for this festival and we're hoping it will be as well attended as last year. The weather is supposed to be fine this weekend. The festival is open Saturday and Sunday, August 15 and 16 from 10a.m. until 5p.m. each day.

I'll have about 40 custom-made lamps with handmade shades, some handmade treasure boxes, handmade suncatchers with sugar beading, gylcerin soaps, one tassel doll left, and some Victorian era papers such as fan greeting cards, knob notes, bookmarks, and note cards.

Come and see me!
