festival success

hey guys!
just wanted to write about & share some photos from our experience as vendors at the kemp wildflower festival, which turned out to be a great success! 
so we arrived at the kemp city park around 9 am & started setting our booth up and displaying our merchandise and around 10:30 people started showing up. the wind just kept picking up and a few tents even blew over, at one point we had to hold ours down so it wouldn’t take off like a parachute! luckily the sun came out to warm us up and the festival got hoppin’ around 12. it was my sister, mirelle, & i running our booth, with the logistics help of my hubby, dekel. he was our sign-putter-upper, our box-carrier and helped with everything from writing our sales down to running the paypal swipe we used when customers wanted to pay with credit card. this allowed mirelle & i to focus on sales, bringing people into our booth and helping everyone try our flower headbands on, which definitely nailed the sale! we hung a long mirror up in our booth & everyone loved trying them on and we sold around 80 flower headbands. we prepared about 150 pieces for the event, but the seeing as there were only around around 600 people there, we did fantastic! especially for our first time doing anything like this, we learned a lot, had a ton of fun, meet some great people and will definitely be applying to get into some more festivals this summer. 
4th of july will be here before we know it!
