Cross Body Bags, in search of bodies...and other crafts looking for good homes....

The epilogue to my recent visit to Shelby will be written as:  Pyscho therapy, in the form of intense sewing and crafting=new inventory for future craft shows.  Right, didn't sell much, but what have I learned?   After an invitation from my gal pal, Crystal, (pictured in her crafty coat finery) to join her in crafty crime at an indoor pop up market for 2 days, caused me to sew every night when I wasn't working, to come up with marketable items for the show.  I even crafted new displays and came up with some inexpensive crafty items hoping to cash in big time.  Sadly, the traffic was minimal but the networking was valuable.  Most of the gals selling were hopefuls from the farmers market and nearby venues, and my gal Crystal was busy talking up the future of this same indoor market location as a place for shops to flourish.  A shout out to Lisa, who invited us to try our luck, and for her possible future plans to make her dream come to life in offering her large warehouse space for others to sell their wares.  That said, the following pics and tutorial are what I came up with.  Perhaps you can be inspired to try a few of these, and maybe, share with me your tips!
