The day began very early after a very short night. We were setting up, a half hour from home, by 7am for today's HerbFest.
Our booth looked great, and folks kept asking us if we had a store. When we told them that we just decided to do this a few weeks ago, they couldn't believe it! They really liked our displays too. My pal Melody is a natural window dresser, so all of the credit goes to her for that.
It was a good day. Mel did extremely well, and made the equivilant of several paychecks. All of son Josh's cinnamon ornaments sold. Everyone wanted them to scent their cars, and loved the fact that they were hummingbird shaped. I was hoping for at least $25, but ended up with just under $50. Remember, I basically was selling my "angry menopausal" women cards, and loved hearing women giggle, and see them elbow each other. Hey...they got the point, which thrilled me...I am not alone in this moody journey!
Our spot was under a tree, and until high noon and afternoon sun of a day pushing 90, we were pretty comfortable. Plus, the ladies room was directly across the sidewalk. N-i-c-e!
Our booth was right next door to a renaissance group of ladies, selling medieval herbs. Very interesting. Did you notice their dress, and the gargoyles in front of their round tent?
Thanks to Jim for helping set up and tear down after a long, tiring day.
We're doing it next year, and hoping for the same spot.
Just think what we can do, creating stuff all year long!
