LOL @ Dollar Tree

I was in Dollar Tree and passed by this Mermaid display:

Something about it made me do a double take and go over for a closer look:

LOLOL, now that I'm looking at these photos, I kinda regret not getting her. If she's still there the next time I go to the store, I'll get her and wipe away the off center eye so I can have myself a Mermaid Cyclops.

Display Idea & A Doll Show

Way, way back in May I participated in a doll show in Orlando. I only this week unpacked the stuff I took and I only did that because I needed to figure out the sales tax I owe that was due today. LOL, so lazy.

Anyway, now that everything is put away, I wanted to share a display idea. I originally had my small accessories in baggies. I thought it was a hassle for people to flip through all that stuff and wanted something that would let them see the items at a glance. I also wanted something ready made because I just didn't have time to make one. Behold the Nail Polish Counter Display!

At the time I purchased mine it was $24.99 with Amazon Prime. Considering I didn't have to build it myself, it was absolutely worth the cost. Check out the video at the end of the post to see it in use.

The show itself was fantastic. The venue was 4 times bigger than the other show I attended and I made WAY more money. However, unlike last time, I didn't spend any money either. I intended to buy stuff, but I was so busy selling I never got the chance. The bit of show footage I got is what I saw on my way to the bathroom before the show started. Once the doors opened for the public I didn't venture far from my booth. I will be going back to this show next year, but I don't know if I will be a vendor or just buying.

I attended the show by myself and took all this stuff with me:

I don't think I can handle doing that again. I'm going to have to rethink my setup or drag my mom along or just go as a customer. I LOVE selling, but I want to see all the other stuff for sale too and I was bummed at not being able to do that. On the other hand, it meant I came home with more money. Still, I would have rather come home with some cool new dolls.
