John and I tore down Circle Craft on Sunday night. What can I say…The show was awesome, amazing even. By far the best show I have ever had. I’ve got to be honest with you. I was nervous. The show basically doubled the number of vendors in the fibre category this year and there are only so many shopping dollars to go around. It could have gone either way. I’m so glad that old and new customers made their way to my booth.
So what do you do on a Monday after two weeks of shows?
You got it–pet your cats, sleep in for an extra few hours and get back to work. The inventory for the next show is not going to knit itself, hmmm, or can it?
I have some pics from the show which I hope to post over the next few days. I also have an inbox full of custom orders. I am starting on those tomorrow. Yep, I need to spend some time at home. My stress cold sore managed to hold itself back until Monday morning (so I didn’t scare customers out of the booth). Whenever I run low on inventory my body flags me with the same cold sore. Unfair and disgusting.
To Toni, Paula, Pearl, Monica, Jean, Nancy, Jennifer and Lea —-from the bottom of our hearts —John and I thank you for all of your help before, during and after the show. We are the luckiest people to have such amazing friends.
