I wasn't too thrilled with the turnout last year when I attended street fairs in NJ. It just seemed like, compared to places like Pelham and Nyack, NJ was a bit lacking. As a fan of second chances, I thought I would give my neighboring state another try.
I spent the night before last constantly checking the weather forecasts for Fair Lawn. My show a week ago, in Suffern, got rained out. I did not want to deal with that again, especially since I would be doing the Fair Lawn show all by myself.
Overall, the show was decent. The weather forecast definitely kept a lot of people away, but I had fun. The organizers for this event were some of the most efficient I have ever worked with. There were many more of their employees walking around than I had ever seen at a street fair before. Fair Lawn is a nice little town. Definitely a place I felt comfortable in.
I also want to take this time to thank my awesome neighbors, Alan and Stacey (pictured above). They were kind enough to entertain me during the show and help me break down some of my equipment at the end (we had to close early to avoid the oncoming storm). Stacey runs a cute little jewelry shop on Etsy called Petal & Stone. Alan is the self proclaimed "muscle" and "labor". Overall, they make a great team.
