So, what did I do? Improvised! I used the basket I keep my wrapping supplies in to hold the journals. I converted one of the black mini suitcases to a cash box and tucked the tins in a little box on the shelf. Hubby ran to the nearest bank, got more change AND stopped at the dollar store for more basket shred for the larger journal container. Had this been a couple of years ago, I probably would have melted down, but this time, we just rolled with it.
You can see the display isn't as neat as the mock up but I made it work. I kept a great attitude and planted a smile on my face. A little laughter goes a long way. Thankfully, a good friend showed up and kept me grinning and enaging the customers too.
No one even knew the display wasn't what I envisioned :)
Any funny craft fair experiences to share?
