I also made a great contact with someone who has an artisan's blog for our area. She wants to do an interview and take photos for the blog and that can't be bad! Who knows where that may lead.
I was a little disappointed that I wasn't placed where I was told I'd be, and also that there were no banners. Last year when I attended this same show there were simple printed banners with the name of the company over each booth. I assumed it would be the same this year and so let my idea of making my own or buying a professionally printed banner go for this show and had nothing to say the name of my business, other than my tiny business cards. I will be sure and take care of that for the next show for sure.
As I said, I learned a lot and had fun meeting people. My husband and sis-in-law both helped me so much, and one or the other of them were always in attendance with me, on the off-chance that things would get busy. Hah! Oh well.
