The MAC Fair

This past weekend I was at my second, and final, craft fair for the season.  I’ve never exhibited at the MAC Fair before, but it was absolutely amazing.  I arrived to discover elves (volunteer students) waiting to unload my gear and take it to my table for me.  Now that’s service!  The show itself was huge, occupying both gymnasiums, with the raffle offerings lining the hallway between.  There was free coffee, the volunteers were efficient and attentive, and that made the day all that much easier.

Lucky for me, my friend Carolyn of Maiden Star had the table adjacent to me, so we were able to watch each other’s table and get a chance to shop.  I think I spent as much as I earned, but my Christmas shopping list is almost crossed off so I’ll call that a win!  There was a wonderful variety of vendors, all handmade, and to top off the day we grabbed a couple of cake pops.  Delish!

I’d like to give a great big “hello” to our new readers from both my shows this year, it has been great to meet so many new people.

What’s Next

We may be done with big events for the year, but that definitely doesn’t mean we’re trading in our beads and pliers for slippers and hot cocoa just yet.  We’ve got lots of great designs that we’ll be adding to our Etsy store.  We’ve even got something planned for when we reach 250 Facebook followers.  Haven’t followed us on Facebook yet?  Click right here to visit us and like our page!

We’re also able to get around our respective cities (I’m in Ottawa, Roxy’s currently living in Winnipeg) and do private showings in the comfort of your own home.  No need to hunt for parking or wade through crowds!  Prefer to shop with friends?  Invite some over, and we’ll turn it into a jewellery party!  Contact us by email at info@drakestail.com for more details or to arrange your own private showing or jewellery party.

Sneak Peek

I’ve also been busy designing some new hair accessories, just in time for holiday party season!  Here’s a sneak peek of some alligator clips, sparkling with clusters of crystals!
