And a close-up of my new products (Charming Memory bracelets and Whimsy rings) on their displays:

Day 2 didn't have the previous night's insane onslaught of people, but it was a lot of fun and profitable, too. Here I am at my booth:
If you look, you can see some carnage. My hooks didn't want to stay on the picture-frame displays, and look how quickly I sold out of one of my scrubs. I ended up selling the sample one, too! I guess I'll know to make more Orange Spice ones next time. Look at this close-up of some of my bargain jewelry:
Later that evening, I modeled in the fashion show, but I don't have any photos to share yet. When I do, I'll certainly post them.
As always, the best part was chatting with customers and other crafters. These shows give great feedback on what products people like and which displays draw in the eye. The #1 highlight, though, was the young lady who came to my booth and told me she'd bought one of my Wonderland rings from The Felt Bird -- and she was wearing it! That filled me with such joy.
Though it's tempting to continue basking in the glow of a successful venture, now I have some serious crafting to do!
