Art show set up

About this design:

Setting up for the art show. Sat weather was in 90's. 8) I got a bad sunburn :( (when will i learn? ) bordering on sun poisoning ... but had a lot of sales. :D I did very well.
On Sunday, I had a big sale, 8O but then it started pouring. no more sales that day.

The good news is people were buying. Jewelry, paintings, pottery, ect. and I made my very first sales as "an Artist"

    Looks great! I can relate, I got a sunburn at my show, too! I was under a tent, but the artist demonstration was just at a table out under the blazing sun!

    Fabulous Booth Lorrie! So happy to hear you had great sales! That is too bad about the sunburn. I get sun poisoning and that is bad stuff. You can get something for the discomfort from the doctor if the usual remedies don’t work. Feel better soon!

    Hi Lorrie,
    So glad to here you had wonderful sales !!!! I am sooo happy for you !!!!!
    Didn’t you have a tent to set up? Sorry to hear you got a bad sunburn….
    I know the perfect remedy…. get some raw, unfiltered honey… and put it on the burns…. it is an amazing natural remedy for burns… it really works…. it’s an old Egyptian remedy….. It will take the pain away , and the redness and
    will help it from blistering…. it truly is amazing stuff…. Eric had a really bad burn from the lawn mower motor. a couple of years ago… and someone told us about it… it worked amazingly well, took away the pain almost immediately, and within a few days, there was no sign of the burn,
    it’s sticky…. but it works !!!!!

    Congrats on your sales, Lorrie! Violet is right- honey is a wonder for burns! My young cousin burned his arm running into a hot grill. My grandmother came out with a jar of honey and applied to his arm. He never blistered and there was never a scar! This happened over 30 years ago. The old remedies really work! Feel better!!

    Whoopeeeee!!! So glad to hear your great news!!! Your display looks wonderful, and I’m not surprised at all that you had great sales – you do beautiful work and have a nice variety of styles too!

    I’ll add my sympathy to the rest about your sunburn – and hope you will recover soon. I’d never heard about using honey, and will have to remember that for the next time I forget!
