What a Day, What a Day... The Martha Stewart Holiday Craft Sale Recap

We just got home from the most amazing trip to NYC. The Martha Stewart Holiday Craft Sale was an incredible event and by far the finest craft sale I have ever participated in or attended. The caliber of craft was SO high.

It was very interesting getting a glimpse into the MS world. I also enjoyed being able to meet and mingle with so many creative and crafty folks.

The sale was held at the Martha Stewart HQ in Chelsea. "Martha" was there to meet us when we entered the sale space. Entrance to the craft sale

The real Martha came by and previewed the sale.

Hey!  It's Martha!  She stopped by while we were setting up and I got a chance to chat with her a little bit.

Giant wedding cake style chandeliers made of tinsel strands hung from the ceiling.

Fab ribbon chandeliers hung in the space.

A couple of demo stations were set up and guests were able to make their own ornaments.

MS had a couple of stations set up for ornament making.

Before the show opened on Saturday, while everyone was still setting up, I took a moment to walk around and take a look at the other tables.

Handle and Spout had some adorable hair clips.

Vintage by Crystal had a sweet collection of spun cotton figures.

Here's my table, all set up and ready to go.

The guests lined up around the block, and at noon, the doors opened and everyone flooded in. The sale was packed ALL day long.

Sales were great, and I had a chance to meet a lot of nice people who follow my craft blog, and my kitty blog too.

It was an amazing experience, and I am so grateful to have had this incredible opportunity! I'm hoping many good things will come from this day.

Thanks to all who came by and said hello. I am so happy to have met you and appreciate your support!

Congrats! I'm glad it was a big success :). There were so many things to buy judging by the pictures. I really liked the felt jewelry, very original.

I'd totally forgotten you had a cat blog! I'll have to check it now, hehe.

It was an amazing day and your things were totally fabulous. I hope you do it again next year, and then I'll look at more of what the other people did. As it was, I was pretty much all about you and I'm loving my garland and my pin which will become a hair ornament for the holidays! You are THE BEST!

Your table and wares looked great! I don't think you can do better than a Martha craft show, and I'm glad you had a good time.
