Bad Girls Rock Fairbanks!

Our craft show this past weekend was awesome and amazing.  As usual, the customer turn-out on Friday evening was tremendous and the crowd was incredibly enthusiastic. The most exciting part for me was that channel 11 (the local NBC affiliate) did a live-shot at the show on Friday evening.  I was interviewed by a 6' tall, thin, blond 25 year old, which was extremely nerve wracking.  You have to understand that I'm only 5' tall and a bit frumpy at 53.  Needless to say, I felt, well, short.  Let's just say it was an interesting contrast!

Here's a look at my booth.  I can never get the camera settings right for these banquet room shots.  The lighting is so difficult to work with, but this photo will give you an idea of how I set up my booth.



I've always preferred a booth that allows customers to enter rather than simply walk up to.  I find it more inviting.  Carol & I share a small table for check out purposes (seen on the lower right side of the photo).

Early Saturday morning -- like 4 am -- Rick & I were wakened by a little earthquake.  It was centered very close to Anchorage, but we certainly felt it on the 7th floor of the Westmark Hotel!  It was like a wave flowing across the room.  A bit unnerving to say the least.

Earthquakes freak me out. Seriously.

But I love the booth! The lights hanging above are a brilliant touch, and I agree - I think it's more inviting to welcome your buyers into your space, not just around it.

Congrats on you show! Your booth looks great. Unfortunately, I am familiar with those earthquakes & let me tell you...you NEVER get used to them.
