Steampunk Worlds Fair - May 18-20
-Tons of fun, pleasently surprised with sales volume, met some great new customers & fellow vendors, got an idea for table setup, learned not to forget the tent on 80 degree+ days.
Lansdowne Farmers Market - Opening day May 26
-Remembered the tent for the 89 degree day!, got more stylized with my table setup, learned I needed a nice big banner to attach to the back of my tent, very happy with sales volume, and met more great local customers and fellow vendors.
Photos will be added on myFacebook Page.

If you've ever bought sheets, pillow cases, slipcovers, etc. you know the protective plastic bags they come in, the ones with the zipper top. These are great to keep and have 101 uses (or more)! I use them when I pack toiletries for travelling. I also use them to store the oils I use for my bath and body product. So remember, don't throw them away!
As you can see from the picture, I also like to keep small gift bags to use when travelling or vending. They are just the right size for little things like toiletries, office supplies, notebooks, etc. Reuse, reduce, recycle!!!

If you have relatively small products, use brown paper lunch bags as shopping bags when vending. They are very inexpensive & widely available. I bought round Kraft labels from Staples (with a rebate!) and designed & printed custom labels for them. The bags are reusable, recyclable, and sometimes made from recycled materials themselves.
