Sometimes, we’ll take a chance on a new event. That was the case with this one – we received an invite through our Etsy store, and it sounded like fun. It was a two part event. In the daytime, a family friendly witch’s bazaar. At night, an adults only party.
While the event was fun, it was not really successful for us as vendors. Traffic was low, and the two events with the break between them didn’t really seem to work for crowd energy. I think this event would do better if it decided what it really wanted to be and focused on it.
The site was a fun park, which in the daytime was great to wander and see all the vendors. At night, not all of the vendors stayed… and unfortunately those that did weren’t all clumped together. Which also meant as the October evening temperatures dropped, people stopped wandering.
The costumes were cool and the people were fun, but this was one of very few events that we have left early.
Don’t forget – we really need your help to buy a new tent! Your help with our fundraising efforts is massively appreciated.
