Art Show in Glens Falls, NY this weekend

It was a BEAUTIFUL day to spend outside in downtown Glens Falls today.  We really enjoyed ourselves at the show.  It was fun to see a lot of friends and to make new ones.  Jessica from Rosebud Johnnies shared space with us and it worked great.  She is about to list some of her fantastic bags on her ETSY site along with all her great kids hats, quilts and other fun stuff.  She has a wonderful color sense and started sewing along with me a few months back.  She is great at making all kinds of bags.  
We sold a ton of scrabble tiles and were thrilled to find a lot of customers return from previous craft shows.  It is so fun to have people come to the booth and say, "I have been hoping you would be here. . ."  
Hammered sterling silver disc.
We sold a lot of our chunky initial necklaces and are reminded what a wonderful gift item these are.  Our goal is to get our act together enough to approach some local stores about carrying them.  They flew off the bottles today.  Speaking of bottles, we received ALOT of questions and offers for my hand blown glass bottles that we display some of our necklaces on.  I got them here and LOVE them.
Darcy in shop girl mode.  It was great having another body in the booth, so when one of needed a break we were all set.  I never left the booth, which saved us lots of money!  I plan to venture out if we hit a slow patch on Sunday.
Lots of fun wired wrapped earrings . . . from the semi-precious stone purchase from India.
Pigtails, Pigtails, Pigtails
First time having key fobs in the booth and they were a big hit.  We will make sure to make lots of them for future shows.
Czech Glass earrings, we are loving these!
Wire wrapped topaz.
The talented Jessica of Rosebud Johnnies!
Close up of her awesome bags.  I will have to post some shots showing the whole bags, but wanted to show the wonderful crystals!
Who doesn't want a little bling on their bag?
Off to sleep, so we can get going early and hopefully have time for a STARBUCKS, this Seattle transplant needs her fix!

Love it! I am ready for a tutorial on glass pendants/scrabble tiles. I have been buying covered buttons from your supplies and want to try the other things. Where do you buy the images for your glass pendants/scrabble tiles??
Thanks!!
