Thank goodness THAT's over!

Yesterday morning I arose from bed at 3:15AM, left home at 4:30AM and was at the craft fair at7:00AM sharp. We erected our tent (I'll tell you my tent drama another day), and had the display set up and ready for action by 9:00AM. The event opened it's doors (or should I say gates) to the public at 10:00AM. I have to say it was a very quiet event. Actually it was quieter than any event I've ever participated in (not that I have that many under my belt yet), but like husband said "at least he got to learn all about falcons and owls" (that's a whole other story too)!! We think the impending bad weather kept the crowds away.

We did have fun hanging out with fellow Etsy sellers - Charlie & Sarah, Go-Monkey and Hampton Jewels. We chatted and kept each other company for the 1st half of the day until the big black cloud came rolling in that had us packing up in record time. I must say I have never seen such a scarey looking cloud. I remember uttering something like "I wonder if God is coming?" to myself - LOL.

Needless to say we were up and out of there before you could say rub-a-dub-dub. I was home by 5:30PM, logged on to Etsy and announced that I was going to sell some soap tonight - and I did - lots of it!!!

Thanks everyone!

Not that it was awful but it never fails - the less time you invest preparing is the more successful the event. Next show gets zero effort from me - LOL!!

Hey, i'm curious about the bathbombs being out like that, did the sun wart them at all?

Morgan Street said...

No warts from the sun. They were fine, but then again we weren't out there for too long anyways - LOL!

I was more worried about the impending torrential downpour so of course they were the 1st things to get packed away.

I love your display! So pretty. Sorry the weather didn't cooperate. I'm sure it's no consolation, but we've had one of the wettest summers on record up here in VT. It's a big pain in my bath bomb! :) Hope your next show is as fabulous as your display!
