First show jitters!!!

So at the beginning of the month, I was contacted by the show coordinator for the 1st annual Pennsylvania woman's show I knew there was no way under God's green earth I could afford the booth fee, But the very sweet lady told me she would see if she could find someone to share a booth with me. After several days of not hearing from her, I breathed a sigh of relief thinking "she forgot about me...who am I kidding? I'm a huge introvert.. I'm not doing a show!" ...she got back to me saying she found someone to share a booth with me! Oh snap! Busted...now I have to do it. So , here it is, the day of set up. Can I just say I'm scared to DEATH! Not only do I have to worry about people not liking my things or having to compete with mass produced Lia Sophia jewelry..now we have the swine flu *possible pandemic* Now all I can think of is no one is going to show for fear of getting the pig virus *rolling eyes* can anything else possibly go wrong?I did do a pre show set up just to see how it would look set up..here's a preview (keep in mind I have a small space to set up, so the table to the left won't be that close)



























The big draw is Jon and Kate Gosselin from Jon & Kate + 8.
I'm really hoping they show, I would love to meet them!Hubby said , it's all a learning process and atleast I'll get some experience even if it's a bust. Maybe I should have shot for a smaller show to start with?!

Oy Vey...it's going to be a long weekend! Wish me luck!I'll come back later to update as to how it went.

"Oh Snap!" LOL! That one always cracks me up. :)
HOLY SHIT at those booth prices! Oh my damn...and for a 1st annual show to boot! I hope there is a great turnout. Your table and banner look wonderful! Very pretty and sophisticated!
And hubby is right...shows are so live & learn. And it's exposure. Learning & exposure...both good. Well, except the public nudity kind of exposure. And guess that can be good under the right circumstances. heeheehee...
Good luck girl!!
