I may be asking for trouble

But I really can't help myself. I'm trying something weird again. I signed up for a 2'X 3' space at Countryside Craft Mall in Sterling Heights, MI. Some reviews here.

It is a small space, and I need to add some signs and maybe something to help catch the eye. I'll work on it. I stopped in as a spur of the moment kind of thing on April 30 and went in on May 1 to set up my bags and sign the lease. I got a deal on the space because none of the smallest spaces were available.

I'm gonna try it. It will end up costing a little more than my ill fated show, but I did sell 2 bags there. I like this venue because, much like etsy, it doesn't require my presence. And it allows customers to see the bags in person, which I think is a huge benefit. I'm going to give it 6 months. Hopefully it will be worth it! I'll keep you posted.

What a GREAT idea! Especially if you don't want to be a physical presence at a booth. No harm, as long as you sell enough to cover the space. Good luck!
