sweet happenings at bazaar no. 2

while at today's bazaar, these things happened:

1) "your mind is so warped... i love it."
3) a little girl fell in love with penelope the bunny and came by every 15 minutes during a 5 hour span to hold her or stared longingly at her from across the room. when she left the room, the girl's father rushed over and purchased the bunny and hid it. the little girl came back into the room and immediately starting crying silently when she saw that penelope was gone. she slowly walked over and let the tears roll down her cheeks as her eyes searched my table for her now missing friend. my heart was touched to know that she had become so attached to something that i created with my own hands. it was a good feeling, but it was so bittersweet because she was so sad! she's going to LOVE Christmas morning when she finds penelope in her hands once more, now forever hers to cherish ♥

below are photos of some of the items i sold at the bazaar:

my very first bazaar!

after over a month of hair-pulling, dry-heaving, and no sleep due to the farmer's market's failure to notify me whether or not i got into their bazaar, it ended when i received a call just over a week before the event that they had run out of space and i "didn't make the cut." so, i sulked for five minutes and then decided i didn't crochet all these critters for nothing, and called up two businesses that would be holding events and bazaars this month. i immediately received responses saying that they would LOVE to have me - yay!

on december 2, i had my very first booth at a brand new yoga studio in town called heart stream yoga for their first friday event. being that it is fairly new, a small space, and a bit hard to find, with tons of other events happening that day, i thought it went really well! in all, there were eight vendors in the studio, including myself. plenty of specialty wines, ciders, and gluten-free goodies! my artisan friends included a knitter, an up-cycler, photographer, drum maker, authors, painter, and yoga and martial art instructors! the atmosphere was laid back, everyone in their socks or bare feet, and even if we didn't make a lot of money, we made friends, new contacts, and plenty of moments for laughter. it was the best first bazaar a crafter could ask for :)
