The craft fair

Just wanted to let you loyal followers know that I sold 13 bracelets (gave away 4, 3 to friends of Cameron's and one to my friend Barb!) and made $74.00. And I got an order for one like I was wearing, but didn't have the beads! Wohooo! It's not like I'm going to get rich, but I had a great time and made a little cash. Anna and Samantha had a good time too! :-) I'm so not a good business woman. Every time a friend of Cam's (girls in his grade or class) came by, I had to quick whip a bracelet out for them. Most of them are super sweet and good kids, so I don't mind. Plus, I made points with their moms. LOL! I'd just as soon gave out bracelets to people as they walked by, but I'm not that rich. What a bummer! I joked about donating my earnings and Wayne just rolled his eyes. He asked that I wait til after the holidays. Hahaha! I can guarantee that I will never be wealthy. Giving is too much fun and so rewarding.

That's great! I know I give away as much as I sell! LOL

congratulations!!! You are off to a great start, if nothing else you made enough money to get some more beads!

Good job Melissa. I'm the same way in regards to giving vs. selling. Guess thats why I never have yard sales.
