I think your display looked great Karla . From what i can see from all the posted pics in your blog and other blogs , it was over whelming over abundant eye candy , so much packed into a short time. i will be looking forward to your shop opening too. Always exciting things from Karla's Cottage. So now waht ? Are you going to go head first into christmas? I guess thanksgiving comes first for you , are you cooking this year? Donna


Beautiful inventory and loads of treats you girls got! Wow I bet it was a joy to visit everyone in person. Good luck with your new Store!
Hugs, Diane

So fun to see and read your blog. I check for updates all the time. Thanks for taking the time to share with those of us that didn't get to go.

Good Morning! I love your display.. I wish you would have sold more. Opening your own store... yaaaay I can't wait to see it. I love the little out fit for your fairy grandbaby! how cute.
I hope you have a wonderful day. I have got to start baking, we are having our Thanksgiving tomorrow.... here... at my house!! eeeks.


I think your displays looked perfect! Those boots are awesome!

Karla, I agree with what Donna just said:
"...it was over whelming over abundant eye candy , so much packed into a short time"

That's exactly how I felt when I entered the Bella Fair and Prom! I wish I could go back and do it all on SLOW MODE!!!!

Love all your pictures today!
Hugs! Heidi


I'm several posts behind, but it looks like you had a great time even if you didn't sell as much as you would have liked!
Can't wait to see your new store.
Hope you get your typepad issues fixed!



Good Luck on with your new "store" Your booth was lovely!! :c)

Oh my Gosh your boots are just way to cute!!! I want a pair :c)

Your shoes are gorgeous. I'm so sorry you didn't get to wear them, but your booth looks wonderful! It sounds like this has beena great learning curve for you. I look forward to hearing more about your new shoppe!

Happy Thanksgiving!


Man it sure looks like you had a fun time. Love all your pics. Your displays made me drool. Looking forward to you new shop.


I had no idea of the line that you would have waiting to checkout! I wonder if putting little "impulse" items by where you have your checkout would have worked better and showcase the jewelry on the other side? Looking forward to your new business! I think you will do great and be able to get your camera :)


Loved the inventory -- know what you mean about the display, but learning is part of the gig. I like the framed rack, also the board with the charms. And what goodies you got! That's worth it all, I think! Perhaps a trip to Silver Bella will someday be in my cards! It sure looks fabulous!


How sweet are those shoes dam shame you never got to put them on, and I think your booth looks gorgeous, I know I would have gone through every inch of that table and bought up big if I was there, how cute is that dress I can't wait to see it on fairy grandbaby, photo please! I'm loving your little decorated bottles, OOOOH I'm wondering what you got from my shop that Natasha brought for your gift as she has picked many things.......hmmmmm nu don't have a clue, once again great posted Karla.

I think your booth was great. The "framed 'jewelry was a great display. Everything we do is always a learning experience, isn't it? You'll do great with your New business and I will look forward to seeing your new website. The dress for Sugarwings is just too cute, and the way this year has went by, it will be no time until she is flying around in it.Karla, have a fantastic weekend.

Love hearing about your Silver Bella Experience!! Keep the pictures coming.


The booth looks fabulous! Maybe they should have allowed more time for the vendor sales? It sounds like it was a rush! I've seen your picture posted everywhere! Your dress was beautiful! Too bad about the boots! They're really cute!


Everything looks great!! I wish I could have been there!!Love your stuff!! Next year for sure!!


Love all your stuff! I am off to check out your leftover crap....I mean inventory! hehehe

Love your booth...I really wish I could have seen it up close and personal.

Karla, I'm moving backwards on the posts and I see that move previous comment did show up. There might be two on this post as well *sigh*

I love your gorgeous both and wish I could have seen it in person


Andrea S.

Karla, it was such pleasure meeting you! You are just as kind and generous in person as you are on your blog. Thank you for the wallpaper outing too! It was so much fun getting to hang out with you guys!


Karla, you make me smile!

'Nuff said :)



Well, the good news is if you didn't get around to wearing those shoes, now you get to find another wonderful place to go with them. Right? It is always interesting to see what sells and what doesn't at the various shows. I wouldn't be able to choose from all those goodies for sure.
