The recent show and sale at the Sandy Cove park was a great success.
The crowds kept coming, and sales were brisk. Some items sold faster than others, but I feel sure all the vendors had moved product by the end of the morning.
It is always fun to watch people approaching a display. Most will avoid eye contact, as if looking into the eyes of a vendor demands that you make a purchase. Of course that is the reason we do what we do, but it is also fun to talk to new people, and discuss why we do what we do, etc.etc.
Still others walk down the middle of the aisle, seemingly ready to run if you approach them in any way. Many refused the offer to enter a draw for a free book. It would be their choice from the selection of books on our table. Really? Refuse a free book!!! However, many were adventurous and took a chance. We calculated eighty-five entries from our small gathering.
My friend, Brenda Wood and I, shared a table and offered our books, handcrafted photo greeting cards, and framed pictures of landscapes, skyscapes and fall colors and more.
We enjoyed ourselves, but welcomed when the show was over. It is tiring to stand for hours. Yes, we could sit but it is hardly polite to have conversations while sitting. I, personally, prefer to be at eye-level.
However, we were thankful for a successful showing and for an opportunity to share our creations.
Have yourself a wonderful day, I know I will.
