Aah...finally a few minutes to update! This week is flying by, between life in general, work and preparing to remodel our kitchen. Even though we're not doing the physical labor there is still a ton of planning and coordinating involved. Much of the time I would normally spend crafting has been spent looking at samples and products and meeting with our contractors. It's exciting, but I must say I'll be glad when it's over!
As for the Holidays In Haslett show, I don't think it was as busy as last year, but it was (A)a gorgeous day to be outside doing fall cleanup and (B)a home football game for MSU. And I'm sure I don't even need to mention the state of the economy. Still, a steady stream of shoppers came through, and sales were not bad at all. I sold 4 eyeglass holders, which is very encouraging since they are a design I'm proud of.
Mary sold a lot of her wonderful catnip mice and several of her knit hand warmers, among other things. We both got lots of positive feedback on our work, which is always nice to hear! Thank you to everyone who supported our crafty endeavors and purchased something from us!
The next Meridian Township Crafters' Market is this coming Sunday, October 28. Once again it will be in the Central Park pavilion from 11 a.m. until 4 p.m. I THINK I will be participating, but I'm not absolutely certain. Mary is a season pass holder and will be there for sure, but I have been signing up on a month-by-month basis. If the weather is decent I will attend...but if the weather is crummy I'll probably wait for the next indoor show. I know, I know...wimp! But I can't imagine too many people will want to shop the show, either, if it's too wet or cold.
Speaking of the next show, it will be sometime in mid-November. I haven't signed up for anything yet, but I am considering a couple that still have openings--so when I decide for sure I will post here.
