As an MiOEE mentor for many new entrepreneurs I never expected my wife to show creative flair and set up her own cottage business in the creation of her own little niche of making designer leather wrap bracelets.
One morning she announced that she had applied and was successful in securing a limited place for artists at a craft fair in South Carolina. She proceeded to share her ideas for the event as well as asking for my input on how she could make an impact on a shoestring budget that would leave her with a healthy profit by the end of the one day craft fair event.
Initially, she rang up the event equipment rental firms across South Carolina. Average rental prices for weekend canopy stand tents were being quoted at $120. Catering tables and covers were another $40 each! Add in Jewelry stands, shelves and signage and the bill was looking to be over $400. With a travel distance of 160 miles each way and driving a gas guzzling suburban, all of a sudden it looked unlikely that she would be making a profit at all.
With a little advice and some creative thinking, Jessica writes here about how she managed to stage a good looking craft display stand at a total cost of $40 and made sales in excess of $600 over the five hour Saturday Craft Fair.

|Key Largo Vacations|
Initially driving through Homestead on the mainland I was a little hesitant as there is absolutely nothing appealing about that area but after you are into the Everglades National Park and the Atlantic comes into view, things begin improving dramatically. One bridge later on Highway 1 lands in you in the top of Key Largo and the John Pennekamp Coral Reef State Park.
To see the full beauty of Key Largo you have to drive down the side roads on the west side of Key Largo (opposite the state park) as there are cafes, bars, boutique hotels and lovely vacation homes muddled together along the coast line. On Hwy 1 at the top end of Key Largo you will find all the normal facilities such as grocery stores, hardware, liquor stores, fishing equipment suppliers and various marina supplies.
A short distance passed all of the stores and the road straightens out between the trees with sign after sign of BnB's, lodges, guest houses and private rentals on both sides of the highway. We booked accommodation before our flight and rented a lovely motel suite with outside BBQ and water front view on the bay side of Key Largo, stayed for three nights whilst touring the area before heading further south towards Key West. The motel was better than many hotel experiences and is now included in the myrentals key largo rentals site. After three wonderfully relaxing days in Key Largo, it was time to load up the car and head further south along the road stretching out through Key Largo, passed the glorious vacation villas and onwards towards Plantation Key.
