It was a breezy (okay windy at times...okay, most of the time) at Art in the Park this year. Fortunately I was placed where I had asked to be and was next to the building, which blocked much of the wind for us. We suffered no damage. At least it wasn't a hundred degrees like it was last week. With all that's happened in the last year, I shared my booth with a couple of friends...nothing worse than an half empty booth. It made the days fly by and was good to be able to share and visit with them over the weekend.
I see customers and friends here that seems I only get to see here. Sad, I know...life is so busy for us all. Thank you to all of you for shopping, saying hi, visiting and more. I appreciate all of you. And thank you to all my new customers and friends too, I look forward to working with you. I have to say, it was really cool when one customer said she had been purchasing cookie jar lids from me when I was at the Quilted Bear, and that she has continued to shop with me every year at shows. Talk about a loyal customer...that's awesome!!!!! That was a long time ago.
Despite the economy, I was pleased with sales and people were out shopping and happy. Retail therapy is a good thing. I look forward to a good craft show season. Some wind has been put back in my sails...no pun intended. So I guess I'd better get back to work.
