boutique pillow

Boutique Pictures

So, this is my little space at the boutique.  I only had 6′ X 3′- so it wasn’t much.  I tried to make the most of it by adding the table on top of the banquet table.  It  helped, but it wasn’t perfect.  I’ll have to work on my set-up a bit more before I do another one.
I had a great time, and I was really happy with my over-all sales.  I feel like all my effort over the past 9 years, honing my skills and product offerings is finally paying off.
This is also where part of yesterday’s post comes from.  My family could certainly use the extra income, I could definitely use the creative outlet- but how to balance this pursuit with my primary goal of being a good wife/mother?  Oh the drama!  Seriously. 😉
I’ll be listing the left over goodies in my ETSY shop soon, but if you see something you like- shoot me a comment or e-mail, I might be able to give you a better deal. 😉  I have bat pillows and wavy ruffle pillows left, as well as the brown pin-tuck pillow, but the other pillows all sold- Yay! 

I just have to thank you one more time for all your kind words and support.  You truly are the best!  I’ll be offering a give away coming up at the end of the week to show you my appreciation- I just need to gather a few more things before I can show you all the goodies.
So, have a great day.  Know that to me- your comments, encouragement, ideas and visits mean everything.

    Aww, your booth is so cute! I love how you laid it all out. I am doing my first boutique in November and I am scared to death. Do you have any helpful hints? Do you give yourself a budget for supplies and stuff to set up your booth or do you just go for it? I would love to have your imput.

    It looks great! I'm glad it was successful. I wish I could have been there to see it in person. I really do want that pillow so I'll email you with a time we can get together.

    I think your space looks fantastic, Amy. I think the table on top of the table worked really well. I love all of your packaging, too. Congrats on having such a successful show!

    A fantastic result Amy! Next time you will just be a little better prepared and know what people like a little more too, which will make preparations a little easier. Every bit counts when it comes to being able to expand the family budget! Well done.

    Amy, I'm glad I was able to meet you at the Boutique. I was actually considering buying your bat pillow and then I never made it back there buy it because my kids got sick that weekend. SO, how much is the pillow now? Thanks again for chatting with me.

    Amy, it all looks great! I was so sad not to make it to the boutique… that weekend was not a good one for an hour drive with my children. 🙁 I'm glad you did well!

    Wow, your booth looks so cute! Way fun. I love your pillows, wish I could convince my kids that pillows belong on the couch, not on the floor for the dog to lay on. Until then I will continue to drool over your amazing creations!
