As I mentioned in yesterday’s post, today I had a Christmas Craft and Gift Sale with a group of other people (mostly from my church). There were people who sell from catalogue/house party companies such as Epicure, 31 Bags, Stampin’ Up and Steeped Tea (that one would be me). There was a travel agent and a person who sells amazing trays and other art made from re-purposed materials such as wooden pallets. We also had various crafty, handmade items such as Bath sugars, Warm/Cool wheat bags, crocheted items etc.
Though I didn’t sell as much as I could have (or probably would like to have) it was lots of fun. It was the first year we’ve done it (maybe there’ll be a repeat, maybe not) and it was a fun afternoon of socializing and, for me at least, talking about tea which I love to do. I did make a few tea sales and have the potential for a party or two in the next couple months. Lots of fun!
I also bought myself a gift (even though my moneys should be going towards Christmas presents and other stuffs). Remember those trays and artsy items made out of re-purposed pallets? I bought a tray. It is beautiful. I have always loved trays and I’ve always been on the lookout for one that fits the idea I have in my mind. I don’t know if this one is exactly it, but it is pretty close. It is Red and has beautiful Black Handles that look like they may have been taken from an old piece of furniture. I can already picture it sitting on my coffee table (or maybe dinner table) in my future apartment or home. I’ll try to post a picture of it in the next couple of days (either here or on my Facebook page – which you should go like if you haven’t already)
Overall it was a long, but good, day. And I am that much more ready for it to be Christmas!
p.s. If you’re wondering – here is the facebook page for the person/company that made my pallet.
