Christmas Craft Fair Poem

Twas the night before the craft fair and all through my house

craft fair poem

Not a creature was helping...

not even my spouse.

The vintage stockings are packed in a wood crate with care.

By morning all the ornaments soon will be there.

The angels are ready with paper wings instead, while silver glass Christmas balls creating the head.

Vintage Tart Angels

The banners and garland will be strung all around, Christmas music will be playing a beautiful sound.

When what to my wondering eyes will appear?

But a hand painted sled pulling up the rear...

With me in an apron and tags in my lap,

By now all I need is a very long nap.

Last year's craft fair

My days have been busy, my mind in a flurry.

The fair opens early so I'll be in a hurry.

Wish me luck for tomorrow,
another craft fair in sight...
Happy Selling to all and to all a good night!

  1. Love your poem! Good luck. Hope you sell everything.

  2. Have fun, Susan! Hope you sell all of your goodies!

  3. Well said... I think anyone who does what you do can relate...although my husband helps or offers to help often... Best of luck... Last year's table was adorable. I bet this year will be amazing too. Hope you go home empty....Sigh. I have never had that happen but maybe someday...

  4. Cutest poem ever! I'll see you in a little bit!


  5. LOL Susan! Maybe you should create that poem as a printable and sell it - I'll bet other craft fair vendors will buy it like hotcakes! I hope your fair is successful and fun!

  6. Hi Susan! What a neat poem! You are a multi-talented lady! I sure hope you have a fun and successful weekend! Blessings from Bama!

  7. How did it go?? Hope you sold a lot!! Your booth and merchandise look wonderful!
