All set up and ready to go!
The weekend could not have been prettier. Since my booth is in an outdoor pavilion, I have lots of good light, a nice level concrete floor and the ability to tarp off the outer edges (I am set up on a corner) if necessary.
This guy (I didn't get his name) was shopping with a friend at the booth next door when I saw his awesome shirt. Get it?
And despite how crazy busy I was I managed to do a little shopping. This is polwarth/tussah silk from Hobbledehoy Yarn and Fiber out of Pennsylvania. Yummy! I can't wait to spin it up.
As I was packing up to leave I met a woman who, along with her own homegrown yarns, was selling a few pots for her son. He married a young Italian woman and moved to Italy where he makes pots. I fell in love with this mug. It was rather pricey but I couldn't leave with out it. (Very reminiscent of the frechen, beardman or Bartmann jugs.)
Yesterday (Monday) I did all the necessary accounting and went to the bank. More cash sales then usual this year I think, but credit is still where it is at. Thank goodness for Square! Then I relaxed the rest of the day. I am still bushed!
The week is calling for dreary weather here. I have my fingers crossed that this coming weekend and Fall Fiber Festival will be graced with weather similar to last weekend!
I love these festivals. They are a ton of work and I am always exhausted afterwards, but it is worth it. Not only are they very successful shows for me, I also enjoy seeing old friends and customers and meeting so many wonderful people. Fiber lovers are awesome.
