Reports from Park Ave Fest
Total dollars made 30.00.Three items sold
Number of hours spent on making cupcake jewelry a lot
Getting the chance to sell them at the festival and network priceless.
I shared a small tent in the parking lot of Sugar Mountain Bake Shoppe with two other girls on Sat of the festival.
They were selling handmade dog biscuits these biscuits were good enough for people to eat.The girl who makes them owns her own company called "A Barkers Dozen". Her friend brought with her a Chihuahua named Sasquatch.That dog drew in so many people.He was wrapped in a little blanket and people just could not get over the cute factor.
People would walk down the street look at mini cupcakes, look at he beautiful cookies.Some inquired about them for them selves and wanted to eat them. Then we would tell them that they were for dogs.Then people would ask me if my jewelry was for dogs. I would explain that the jewelry was for people but you could put it on your dog as well.
Since everyone would ewe and aw over the little dog and how cute it was I put a cupcake zipper pull on Sasquatch. His owner even went down the street to another pet shop and bought a cupcake motif collar.
Here is the face book page for A Barkers Dozen
I guess that my jewelry was shown along with the bake shop on the local Rochester news for Park Ave fest. If you saw it let me know!
