I participated in my local community colleges annual Spring Craft Fair this weekend.  I was able to set up on Friday, the day before the event, and I always take advantage of the early set up.  So, as you can see in the pictures, there are still a lot of empty tables behind me, but on the day of the event the place was full of vendors, and thankfully customers too. 
 
I always take pictures before I leave just so I have proof that I did set up, just in case any large items would be missing.  But, I have never had any problem with leaving my items there over night, and it makes for an easier day when the fair actually takes place.  I can just go in the morning of the event, do any last minute changes to my display, and relax before the crowd arrives.  It was a great day, sold a lot of products, picked up some new customers, and was even asked to make items for a local historical museum on a consignment basis. 
 
A lot of the items pictured are already on my blog and can be found under the Easter or Craft Fair label. 
 
Craft fairs are a lot of work, but I find that they have helped me expand my business through networking with others at the event, by meeting new customers, and by talking to others about Stampin' Up! and getting my name out in the community that this is what I do, and this is what any one can do with the wonderful products made by Stampin' Up!.
