Not much of a post today. I’m pretty beat. I had a 2-day show this weekend. It was outdoors and the temps hit 90 degrees. I was lucky in that my canopy had shade under a tree for a couple of hours in the morning.
This show is the biggest one of the year. It’s actually 2 shows right next to each other. The Lower Adirondack Arts Council and Zonta (an international service organization). There had to be at least 100 vendors there if not more. I was on the Zonta side, which is nice because there are really wide walkways for people so it doesn’t get clogged up. Setup was done and people started to come in half an hour before the show even started!
That was the nice shade I had until noon. Very thankful for that. The people in the corner on the right there were selling jellyfish in resin, sort of balloon shaped. They were pretty popular, too, which is perplexing to me. LOL
The most popular scent over the weekend:
I also had a new salve. This is made with sweet almond oil, shea butter and beeswax:
It sold pretty well. I was a little worried that it would liquify in the heat, but beeswax has a pretty high melting point.
Even being under a tent, it was still sweltering and hot! I felt bad for those vendors who were in the sun the entire time.
Sales were better Saturday than Sunday and a lot of people came through. I don’t know if I would do this again just because of it being outdoors. At least there was no rain and no wind this weekend. I like the indoor shows much better. The hardest part is working all weekend and back to regular work on Monday.
