We completed the Warren High School show a few weeks ago in Gurnee, Illinois. There were over 125 crafters, including a few other mitten sellers. We still had good sales, with a number of repeat customers. Our new business cards with upcoming shows really raised interest in The Mitten Company.
Last weekend, we traveled to Elkhorn, Wisconsin. That show was very well organized and advertised. There were over 150 crafters spread out over six buildings, with shuttles transporting customers from location to location. With the help of friends, we sold from 9am through 2pm, and hardly had a chance to sit down! It was the best day of mitten sales this year.
There's lots of sewing to do to replace inventory. It's nice to have 10 days to get it done.
Our next show is on Saturday, November 23 at UW-Parkside in Kenosha, Wisconsin. Hope to see you there!
