Ok, first off let me tell you what a colossal waste of time Saturday was. The craft fair was an absolute joke. Yes...I'm actually laughing right now as I type this. Not in a haha funny kind of way, but in a lesson learned kind of way. I guess it wasn't a complete waste, because now I have enough inventory to fully stock my etsy shop. Whoo-hoo! I think we made enough to cover our booth fees and a subway lunch. But in all honesty, I feel pretty positive about the whole experience. We learned alot about what to do and what not to do. And the best part was being able to spend a gorgeous day outside in the park with my best friend and sister. I am so lucky to have her. If she wasn't a mom to 5 kids, she would be a stand up comedian...that's her other calling in life...to make people laugh. Hysterically. Till they pee. We had a great day together. You know, I'd probably feel much worse about the whole situation if the other vendors had fared better, but they didn't. Nobody really sold anything. It was a bust for everyone...YAH! Now that I think of it, there was this one booth that stayed busy all day long. Who knew "Fantasy Faces" would be such a big hit. Personally, I was a little creaped out by all the children running around sporting a full on animal face or a spry water nymph fairy. They were very detailed, and a little disturbing. All day long we wondered as to where all the patrons were. I mean, there were 564 kids running around, but not a parent in site. By the end of the afternoon we had it all figured out. The parents of those creepy fairies and animal creatures were actually the other vendors. Mystery solved.
Throughout the day my hubby called to check on us and see how things were going. I must have sounded pathetic, because when I got home I received this.....
Awwwwwww...ain't he sweet? He just wanted to cheer me up, he said. Well, it worked. I'm thrilled with my brand spankin new laptop. Now if I could only figure out how to use it. I am so excited just thinking about blogging in bed, even though I probably never will.
Let's make a toast...
"Here's to husbands who are fixers by nature"
I will be having a grand opening giveaway for my new etsy shop later this week. I'm still in the process of adding new items.
Be sure and check back!
