Show and Tell Friday

Last weekend Timm and I drove to Reno to attend the McQueen HS Craft Faire.  It's a great show plus we get to see and visit with his brother and family while there.  It's just a great time all around.  Friday is a really long day, but we drove almost half of the distance in the dark.  It seems to go faster in the dark, maybe because you can't see landmarks.  Set up was easier this year and I was actually finished before the show opened.  Friday night sales were great.  Shoppers pay $10 on Friday evening...and the best part...no strollers or children!  I think I would shop on Friday as well.  I missed seeing a couple of friends that night.  One had a family emergency, another came on Saturday.  Timm had never been there before and was amazed at how these gals shopped.  The whole weekend was good.  Sales were up from last year, the weather was pleasant, and customers were happy.   We tore down in record time thanks to Timm and the JROTC.  I always give them a genorous donation for their efforts.  Once again, the volunteer staff put on a wonderful event! 
John and his family are doing well.  The grandkids are growing like weeds.  Oh....they have puppies!  Eight springer spaniel puppies about 3 weeks old, talk about adorable!!!  They were just starting to wonder off the bed a little, and it's amazing how they pregressed in just 4 days.  It's a good thing they weren't old enough to bring home...Cassy would be jealous anyway. 
Well, two shows down, 4 to go for my season.  The next couple are easier ones, then the last one is a 4 day show in St. George.  I'll keep you updated.  Have a great weekend.

Would you consider selling me one of those Frankenstein signs? I loved your stuff from your last show too..you can't find that type of stuff in PA. You should put them in your shop, I believe people would pay the shipping cuz they are hard to find..Beautiful work!!

No, I didn't join the ornie swap this year. I waited too long. I did it 2 years ago and it was awesome to get a bunch of ornies for my tree.
