Well, what a weekend! Thank GOODNESS for my hand dyed scarves! That’s pretty much all I sold – but I sold plenty of them (59, if you’re curious…)! My cold kept me from topping up my stock of winter palettes before the show started, so after a busy Friday night I woke up early on Saturday (6 AM) in order to get 32 scarves dyeing. I got to the show by 9 or so, and sold all day, from 10-5. Once home I had to rinse out the scarves and let them soak in hot water overnight. A final rinse in the morning and I was ironing til 10:30 (the show doesn’t start til 11:30 on Sunday). But I sold quite a few of the winter scarves, so it was worth the extra effort! 🙂
The weather Gods were with us! Friday night and Saturday were perfect weather, and Sunday, although it started with rain, for the most part it was just overcast with no actual rain until we started breaking down the tents. And plenty of people came, so PHEW! I was reasonably busy all 3 days, and although sales were off, they were much better for me and my scarves than for a lot of the folk around me. I ended up doing just a little less than last year, but my friend Lizzie had an awesome show – woohoo Liz!
Now, I’ve got 2 more making weekends before the next show. Must top up the autum color palettes and make some more bags and wallets…sigh it never ends! Here’s a few more detail pix:
