What a great expo this summer! This was only my second time as a seller and I learned a lot from the feedback I received from both sellers and veteran buyers at my first show in February. I also learned I still have a lot to learn. Good grief, was that exhausting and exciting all at the same time!
Thanks to everyone who helped out with words of encouragement and advice. DFC is such a great community – rather than looking at everyone else as competitors, other sellers welcomed me and reached out to help me be more successful. It’s not often you see something like that. Granted, there is such a variety of merchandise that there is not as much overlap as I expected. Even so, I felt much more confident this time around. I also had a lot more fun! Maybe I wasn’t as successful financially; however, I made a lot of great contacts in both sellers and (potential) buyers. That’s a lot more valuable to me!
