As some of you know a glass blowing friend of mine (GlassByMJ) and I (cserpentDesigns jewelry) shared a booth at the Encinitas Street Fair. Here is our booth.
This was not a successful street fair for either of us. From what we could tell folks were buying pet things (the guy selling dog hats behind us seemed to have a lot of customers and we saw many a bag with dog prints in the hands of people), people hats (the gal behind us selling hats did OK - but not great) and food. It was a beautiful, sunny day and it seemed that folks were out to walk and eat and not so much to shop.
I did see one issue with our setup - we didn't have sides on the canopy so it was hard to see our items with all the hats and things behind us. If we do another show we'll be sure to put some sheets up in order to block any distractions behind or beside us. Our setup needs some tweaking too - so we'll do a prelim setup (with 2 6 foot tables next time instead of just one) and get some critiquing from friends/family.
