The Holly Daze Bazaar

You should have seen the little girls smile when I asked if they like fairies and told them my xmas ornaments were fairies! I didn't know they were fairies myself, until another vender told me that's what they looked like to her!

Another vender lent me the tree branch to hang them from. Friends lent me the screen and the table cloth, and posed for my scarf models. People couldn't help smiling when they saw my models. Altogether it was a great experience, lots of fun, and I even made money!

It was a far cry from my first experience, when I sold nothing. I didn't do the bazaar for years after that, because I was afraid of another disappointing experience. What I didn't know at the time was that it is about the conversation, the interactions with people. That's where the fun is, the value--and creating interactions can also create sales.
