My First Craft/Market Show

I had my first table ever where my jewelry was out on display for everyone to see! =)  I have to say at first, before I even went, I was nervous.  I want to do well with what I create and I want others to love my jewelry as much as I do.  My Mom's work decided to bring back "Alaska Agriculture Appreciation Day" to the community of the Matanuska-Susitna Borough (the Valley where I live).  It is a day that is held only once a year and it is to show appreciation for all of the farms out there.  They invited several different vendors to "Ag Day" and I was one of them.  My Mom put me on the list! =) 

At first I was thinking she was crazy! No way will I have enough jewelry to show at something like this!  But as I thought it over,  I decided to just close up my Etsy shop for the day and to bring all my jewelry with me to showcase it.  A week before this day, I ended up staying up all hours of the night, creating as much jewelry as I possibly could. 

"Ag Days" ended up being very rainy and wet, but it went pretty well for the first year to be open.  I had several sales and also several of my friends came to hang out with me, so that made it all perfect. 
My jewelry table: simple, sweet and hopefully one day bigger with LOTS more Jewelry! =)

My pretty flowers I found at the local florist, I thought they were so pretty.
