Sweet Success!

I had such a great time at the Craft Fair on Saturday! I ended up making almost 80 things to sell (a little less than 60 mini cheesecakes and a little more than 20 bags of cheesecake truffles). I ended up bringing home about 10 things that didn't sell. Yay!!

It was so funny to watch people as they walked by. Looking at the other booths, totally composed, then seeing my cheesecakes, their eyes would widen and their mouths would gape open. Seeing that kind of reaction from about 90% of the people that walked by made me so happy, even if they didn't buy anything.

And then to hear the comments from people was so fun! One girl that passed with her family said, "Oh, Dad, that is so tempting!"

I even had a HUGE surprise. My brother, Andrew, and his wife, Tatiana, drove all the way up here from Utah to come and help me!! I was so surprised to see them standing in front of my booth! I gave them a cheesecake to walk around with and eat for some advertising. They did a really great job!

So, all in all, Saturday was a great day for me. Here are some pictures of my booth...


I'm already looking forward to more craft fairs next year!

That is so awesome! Good for you for getting yourself out there. I'm sure people are going to be looking for your booth next time too. Love your display! :)

Thanks everyone! And Rachelle, I'm so sorry, but the truffles are all gone. Sorry!! But if I get an order for several bags, I'll reserve one for you.
