I have one weekend where I am overlapping two shows. One is a Friday night & Saturday while the other is Sat & Sunday. My hubby and teenager will be helping me out with those!
I am lucky because during the 2 weeks just prior to xmas, I am able to place whatever is left in a open house type event. I don't have to be there, just give 30% to the Arts Council (who staffs the showcase) and usually get an extra $100 that way.
We dont have many multiple day sales here. Most are in churches so usually just Saturday. Tis year I went and made up Copy paper boxes where I put in one or two things (ie post it note holders and notebooks) in each box, and labeled the boxes. This way it is much easier for me. This is only the third year I have really been doing shows, so I am still working out kinks. I still havent found the best display option, so that is an on-going process.
