Not a real long post for the weekend. I am feeling a lot better. Not 100%, but I was still able to do the open house weekend with my soaps and not keel over, which was good. My nose was so, so sore because we don’t have tissues (never getting sick). I was using napkins and TP as a tissue. ‘Cause I’m klassy like that. Well, last night we stopped and picked up some real deal stuff:
These are great! They felt so good on my sore nose, too. FYI for those that have the sniffies now.
Anyway, Thanksgiving weekend I did the 3-day show and was on the 2nd floor of the shirt factory. This weekend was just Saturday and Sunday and I moved down to the 1st floor. That really made a difference, I have to say. It’s worth paying a little more to be on the first floor for sure. I had a very good spot. We were in a wide corner area, so instead of being in a hallway, the organizers set two of us up with our tables in a V.
I got along great with the fellow artist that I was right next to. Good thing because that would have sucked if it was an unfriendly person. We are going to try to plan to be together again next year because we got along really well in close quarters. She made fabric items, including some tree ornaments:
I bought a couple of these from her, too. 😀
I was really pleased with this weekend and did more in these 2 days than the previous 3 put together. The best part was at 4:58 on Sunday (the show closed at 5), a woman came up and got excited to see soap and proceeded to purchase $60 worth in about 3 minutes. This is why you never want to break down early. Lesson learned to be on the 1st floor from now on.
Best sellers this weekend? Pine far and away was the best seller. Then Lemongrass. I also had done a lavender whipped shea butter which I just about sold out of, and I wasn’t expecting that. I need to make more now.
On a side note, John is just the best hubby ever. He brought me a latte both days so I didn’t miss my usual latte time. I sure lucked out on the husband front.
Now, finally, I can take a breather and rest some. I might actually take a day off of work this week, too, if it’s slow.
We got the tree decorated as well – that’s been up for almost 2 weeks LOL!
That’s a phone shot. I haven’t taken good pics of the tree with the rebel yet.
One last festive shot. Our downtown with the holiday lights up:
Time to put my feet up!
