Hi there! How’s your week going? Ours has been relaxing, with lots of family time. We’ve had temps at zero or below for several days, so it’s been lovely to stay inside. My sweet husband and I ventured out for a couple of hours to do some after-Christmas shopping, but that’s the extent of our forays into the frigid cold.
In today’s post I’m sharing much of the merchandise that I sold during the Shaker Christmas Craft Fair, including antiques and vintage-y handmade goods.
In total, I grossed just under $1800.00, which is almost exactly what I made last year from my 6′ x 3′ space over the 6 weeks of the show. Minus the $55 fee and 30% commission, I cleared approximately $1200.00.
Here’s what a portion of my booth looked like when I first set it up in late October. As you can see, many of the items sold. [Learn about framing vintage flags here and the yardstick coat rack here.]

I know, I know, I already told you about the cars with trees that sold, but they’re just so darn cute, I thought I’d sign off with one of them.
I hope you enjoyed seeing all of the vintage goodness that sold at the Shaker Craft Fair. It’s the perfect venue for selling projects with vintage flair, which I love developing, creating, and providing tutorials for.
As always, if you get crafty and duplicate any of my projects, send me some photos via email or post them in my Facebook group, Your Vintage Headquarters (join if you haven’t already!).
