Here's the photo of our swap meet booth -- before the wind really kicked up and played havoc with all of our set-ups. Our spot wasn't so great . . . only one other booth on our row as far as the eye could see, so we missed out on a lot of the foot traffic. It was great practice, though. And we did manage to educate a few new people (including one very nice man who bought something from almost every one of us-- and he also took some of the buttons and stickers that Etsy labs sent us to promote the site) -- about the handmade movement.
It was a lot of fun, more of a learning experience than anything else. I don't think any of us are ready to abandon the idea after only one try, and if nothing else, we learned how to set up a group booth!
3DCranes is the name of my online shop at Etsy.com, which is a site dedicated to all things handmade! My company name was formerly Millenium Tsuru, based in Pearl City, Hawaii. I've made the official change to 3D Cranes and am now located in Fort Benning, Georgia.
Everything I make is based on the origami crane (tsuru). Leis, flowers, bridal bouqets, framed art, and, of course, the Hawaii tradition of 1001 origami cranes for weddings. My version is a little different, though, because I prefer to work in 3-d, rather than the traditional, 2-dimensional images normally created.
