“Not a Great Day”


Description from Little Round Chick: Today was the day of the Creative Artistry Show, Local Jewelry by Local Artists. The sun was shining, there was a nice breeze and my booth space was by a row of blooming lavender. There were plenty of people, lots of lookers but very few buyers. I grossed enough to pay for my booth space but that was it as far as sales went. However, there were a few bright spots in the day. There were a number of people, both shoppers and show participants, who expressed interest in taking my Wire Wave class, A spa/boutique owner who was interested in several pieces for consignment and a yarn shop owner who was interested in some of my big copper pendants to be made into shawl pins. Lots of contacts but few buyers. Oh, well. Life is full of ups and downs. I be very tired.

    Nancy, I’m sorry your show today didn’t yield more in sales for you. I am glad you made so many contacts for future sales and classes! Who knows what those may lead to, also! :D

    Lovely pick! Bet you’re glad to be home and off your feet now. Congrats on your successes of the day, LRC! 8)

    The chocolate cake is finished. It has been frosted in genuine butter cream frosting. None of that wimpy, light weight thin glaze I normally use. This is CAKE! I’d share with all of you if I could just figure out a way to e-mail it.

    That actually sounds like not such a bad day, LRC…not what you were hoping for, I know, but it seems like you did make a lot of connections and at least you got yourself out there. Feel better and don’t be discouraged! :D

    ” the lord works in mysterious ways” is a favorite saying down here in the “Bible Belt”! Just think if all that interest comes to be….you will be BUSY! Where do you live that you had an outdoor show this time of year….that doesn’t even happen in GA…by the way…we STILL have snow on the ground …in patches….

    Those contacts could end up being a good thing! The Powers That Be never close a door without making sure another one is opened, something good will still come of this, I’m sure of it.

    The chocolate cake therapy was excellent. Sali Jo, I live in Southern California now but I know all about the Bible Belt. I grew up on The Buckle of the Baptist Bible Belt in the Ozark Mountains of Southern Missouri. I’m Episcopalian don’t cha know. :D
