Bring on the Rain!!!

Just a quick hello. We are getting ready to head out to Day 2 of the s-l-o-w-e-s-t craft show in history. To make it brief....the show itself is awesome. Everything about it was perfect....the only downfall, which no one can control is that this is the most beautiful weekend ever. It's in the low 80's the sun is shining and who on earth wants to go to an indoor craft show when it's like that? Obviously, no one....except for the very elderly and they weren't buying. They were just out for a stroll.

Everyone was disappointed with their sales...or lack of....even the seasoned pros. Apparently you are suppose to pray for rain when you do indoor shows and sun when you do outdoor shows.

Why is that every show I do, ends up being the worst they've ever had? HAHA!

We sold a few things yesterday, but not near enough to even cover our fee. I am bringing a few things with today that I didn't have out yesterday that the "older crowd" might enjoy.

My booth worked out really well, but again, we learned some things that we will be changing for the next indoor show in three weeks. I'll fill you in on all of that tomorrow. I'll have some pictures for you too.

Have a wonderful day and I hope if you are not doing an indoor craft show today, that the sun is shining brightly where you live!

Chat with you soon!

Hope today was a better day saleswise Kathy:) Isn't that how it always works, when it rains you have an outdoor show and when it shines you have an indoor show:):)

Here's hoping today is better. If nothing else this will provide some good experience for the next one. As the holidays get closer attendance will increase!
