It was $40. I came home floating on a cloud. I went in to Wesley's room, she was all tucked in bed, and I told her I sold my first piece of pottery. She said, "now you are bonafide". If you have seen the movie Oh Brother Where Art Thou, you will understand where this phrase came from, we used to say it all the time about everything.
Today, I sold my first weaving, and then I sold another one. Guess that makes my weaving bonafide too! Hope so, it sure felt good to sell it. I loved the way the two women that bought the runners looked at them, held them, talked about where they were going to put them..... oh yeah..... why we do this!
I sold a few pendants, of course, and a couple of small dishes. It was a slower festival than last time I did it. The weather wasn't the greatest although the sun did choose to show up for a couple of hours. But then it got really cold, started to sprinkle and then it was time to go home. It was a great day though. Affirming in so many ways. I talked to some of the nicest people, everyone was happy, enjoying the day, the music, the wine from a local vineyard, the good food the farmers brought, and the ice cream. They even stopped at the craft booths..... this is where I want to be right now. Outside at festivals, having fun. It's so funny, I was saying exactly the opposite two years ago, but the indoor shows are worse than battling the weather, so me and the weather have come to terms and I am just going to deal with it. At least the light will be from sunshine and not bad indoor convention lights.
There are even flowers :)
I loved this booth, the displays were so inviting and so were the pastries
Nice Fracking booth, whoop!
life is good!
