Continuation of the First Craft fair — 12 Comments

  1. I imagine you in the snow this morning, hopefully snuggled down in your warm bed. Snow is such a beauty and I miss it. We hardly get any winter weather anymore and if we do it is just enough ice to make the roads hazardous but not enough to make the trees glisten.

  2. It’s very cold here too and I think somebody said there will be a 20% chance of snow in London for Xmas day, which hasn’t happened for many years. Great you braved the weather and did something like this. It takes a bit of nerve going out and selling your art, the commercial world is quite hard-nosed. Glad you met the nice lady.

  3. Hi All,

    I am just going to take a quick moment here to answer Neda’s question,.

    We have phone and web back – yippee!!

    There is much snow here … not sure how much but the snow blower guy has been here twice in the last 12 hours. Susan is outside clearing off the car. Today is my every 6 week trip to the hospital for a chunk of the day for treatment. So it is not very optional, I will post when I get home if I feel well enough.

    Hugs to you all and thank you for your concern!!

  4. I’m sorry to hear about the scare in the middle of the night — but hey, you know how well your Emergency Service works now.

    Marketing is such a Mystery! Who buys what? When? Why? By the time you get done with these shows, you’ll possess a remarkable Secret.

  5. I should have said, “these first shows”. Hopefully they will give you the insight for lots of subsequent ones, lots of *successful* subsequent ones.

  6. Glad everything is ok and don’t let the craft fair get to you. Sometimes they are good and sometimes they are bad, but some of my best friends are people I met through my craft shows. I wish I could say they get easier but sometimes they do and sometimes they don’t.

    Glad you have your electricity back. And the totes are lovely.

  7. Hi Nicola, thank you, yes, she is a lovely lady and it is always good to see her.

    Hi Neda, we never went to Boston because of the weather. I think we will be able to this week. The weather is supposed to be bad Sunday … but I will stay home and Susan’s work is close by. We are ok … thank you!!!

    Hi Irene, thank you for your good wishes!! You stay warm too.

    Hi Bobbie, I do love the snow when I am snuggled in bed! And the trees look so gorgeous when they are covered in snow or when they glisten with ice!!

    Hi Beverly, I hope you have a white Christmas if that pleases you!! It does take a lot of nerve to go sell work – thank you!!

    Hi Debi, that is so true that they sure responded when they thought it was a 911. And that was what got the phone company to fix it! Hopefully I have learned a lot in these processes … but I have so so much more to learn!!

    Hi Debra Ann, I am so glad you like these totes!! And thank you for your good wishes. Yes, I am sure you are right about the craft fairs … I need to figure out how to get to a different level.

    Hi Kris, Yes, fudge!! Thank you for your good wishes!!

    Thank you!
