Christmas Craft Fair Bakesale!

This past weekend, my mom organized a craft fair at my church featuring Fair Trade products, as well as local vendors and their crafts. I went with the intention of promoting and selling my mail order packages (which are available for pick-up in Cincinnati on Dec 20-21 as well). I decided last minute to bring along some baked goods so customers would be able to try before they place an order. I sold out of the cupcakes, biscotti, pumpkin chocolate chip loaf cakes, and ginger cookies! I will have all of the recipes available in the coming days, but here is a viewing of the table and baked goods!

Thanks to my mom for buying me the apron I fell in love with at Sur La Table! Everyone at the fair loved it, and asked if I was selling them! I wish, I'm awful at sewing!

And PS - the key to a sucessful bake sale - SAMPLES!!! I was cutting up cookies all day and people LOVED them! I also handed out my business card for a few potential wedding and birthday cakes, and got lots of orders!
