Since I'm new to shows and festivals, I'm looking for suggestions that will help me to keep track of my sales at the event. I keep a small receipt book with pens and cash for change in a fanny pack. Then I have to drag a tub out from under the skirting of my table so I can get at wrapping materials and bags and then try to balance everything and write a receipt and smile and make nice. Guess it's just second nature for some of you, but I haven't 'got' it yet, how to do all that with some degree of grace and efficiency. I sometimes think I look like one of those country yard ornaments that's a piece of plywood cut out to look like an old woman bent over at the waist, working in the flowers, except that with me I'm searching through a bin, rummaging for all the stuff I need right then. There isn't enough space on the table tops where the pottery is and there isn't enough floor space to take a dedicated small table to work from. Ten by ten or 8 x 10 seems very inadequate, so I just need to get better equipped to deal with it. Any advice you have will be happily considered.
My next event is 20-21 June, indoors, all crafters, a few potters, and I'd like to seem a bit more professional.
