This paragraph is for my 1 dear follower. Loyal little soul, do you wonder where have I been? This blog thing is quite hard. I must say, I now have great respect for the daily blogger- pounding out posts, taking and loading pictures, giving tutorials - perhaps I'm on the wrong medications. I kid you. I just have to find blog time and I'm certain I will. I pledge to you my 1 dear follower I'll be with you more often.
Now for the rest of you chicks......when I last left you I was headed to the Farmer's Market. Well I went and it was a grand day. My gorgeous city friend and her husband showed up. We visited, laughed and partook in (as my mother would say) quite a bit of foolishness. I think our behavior must have been quite contagious because the other vendors loosened up and the whole market took on a tail-gate party kind of feel. I had an OK day, sales wise, I did have a few mercy buys - people coming and buying something just so they could see what the hell was going on down at my table. After the FM, my friends came to our farm and we spent the rest of the day and evening crafting, reading mags, napping and eating. It was one of those lovely days that stay crystal clear in your memory for a long time.
The shop has been perking along. I now (if you don't mind) am going to be seen advertising in 2 magazines. Mind you it will be in the mags directories, not a quarter page spread or anything. But still, a big deal for my ego. Also, I have finally ordered my signs. I know what you saying, how can one possibly have a shop and have it in no way identified. Well you can but it probably won't prove to be a brilliant sales booster. That's all in the past now kids -I'm going to have 4 signs - I imagine it will look like an election campaign, my signs in your face everywhere you go.
I must go and feed the farm. I will post this later this evening. here are a couple of pics from the store.
