St. Elizabeth Ann Seton Catholic Church Craft Fair - October 25, 2008

Blog from Patti

The Bib Shoppe, 1795 N. Fry Road #448, Katy, Texas 77450; bibshoppe@gmail.com

IN TWO WEEKS - On Saturday, November 8th, The Bib Shoppe will be at Holy Covenant Methodist Church, 22111 Morton Ranch Road, in Katy, Texas from 9:00 a.m. - 4:00 p.m.

Directions: From I-10 going west, take the Mason Road exit; turn right onto Mason Road; turn left onto Morton Ranch Ranch Road. Holy Covenant UMC's 19th Annual Craft Fair is on the left. Hope to see you there!

The Bib Shoppe had a wonderful day at the St. Elizabeth Ann Seton Catholic Church today. The Craft Fair was top-notch. The people who worked from the church were so helpful and kind. This fair was a winner for sure.

The best part was meeting some wonderful people and getting to chat with some new friends (vendors and customers!)

Vickie, with VS Designs, and The Bib Shoppe shared a booth. VS Designs sell darling, little holders for taking hot items out of the microwave. It was a pleasure being "partners" with Vickie.

Part of being involved in a craft fair is learning what our customers want. We learned we need more purple, sports, camo, and fiesta type bibs. Many people loved the idea of "adult bibs." So many woman proclaimed how their husbands really need a bib. But, the best part was seeing men try on the bibs they wanted to buy for themselves. Now, those are real men - they admitted they were SERIAL SPILLERS - and were doing something about it. Our boutique bibs really were a hit.

Another great thing that happened was learning more reasons why someone would want to purchase our bibs. One lovely lady said she was a wildlife rehabilitationist, and she bought 4 towel bibs to keep her clean as she works with her animals.

We want to thank all the folks who made this fair so fabulous, especially my parents who showed up to support The Bib Shoppe endeavors. "Dad" even helped to model our bibs, while my mother watched in the background. My husband John also modeled. They were great.

Oh, and the moms who stopped to check out our Sweeties were great. Sweeties are like "Taggies" - they are the little baby blankies that can be attached to a child's car seat, stroller, or high chair, or just used by themselves to allow your child to have that cuddly, lovely feeling. We saw the cutest babies at this fair too!

If you have any special requests for bibs, please let us know. We can make them in quantites for events, i.e. Bridge groups; Red Hat Societies; Bible Study Groups; and more. We can be reached at
