First Time Vendor
We had our first experience as a vendor at a Farm Dayz Event in a community, north of us.
It was a really nice event with a lot of demonstrations-sheep shearing, blacksmith, dog herding, milking etc. as well as horse drawn wagon rides, and homemade ice cream.
As far as being a good outlet for wool roving, not so much. The majority, didn't even know what wool roving was. But, on a good note, I did sell out of my wool dryer balls. (Yay!) I wasn't even going to bring them along, but ended up being glad that I did, because that was my best seller. I could have sold a lot more if I had them.
I did get a chance to talk to people about Sheep and Wool, which you all know, is one of my favorite topics!
So, even though we may not use this particular outlet again, I did gain some vendor experience which may be helpful in the future. I also have some wool roving for the Etsy store, so all the work in the mill this week, was not a loss.
