Atlantic Craft Trade Show - Day one

I've made it to ACTS in Halifax. I've had my first shift working the booth. It's not exactly what I was expecting, but I think yesterday was a decent day, so today and tomorrow should be the same or better. I talked to a few buyers as well as a few sellers and am looking forward to doing more of that.

I have noticed that there are not a lot of textiles in this trade show - specifically woven items. Is this a good thing or a bad thing? Maybe woven items aren't viable in the Atlantic provinces' market? I think my classmates and I will have to work toward remedying this.

Please check out my Facebook page if you have a few minutes. I've gotten better at posting pictures on there than here.
