Cancelled market? No problem.
Updated: Dec 23, 2022
Despite the impending snowfall warnings on the weekend, my husband and I set up my booth Friday night ready for the local Artisans Market on Saturday. Early next morning the market was cancelled. Much to my surprise I didn't feel bad. For once in my life I thought "oh well", what will be will be. (what can you do right?)
While tearing down and packing up I realized that the designing and setting up is what I enjoy the most.
Ahead of a show, hours are spent moving little paintings around on my computer, measuring, and imagining on a tiny scale.
I clearly remember as a child designing elaborate setups in my bedroom and filling a shoebox cash register with slips of scrap paper money. I was ready to greet imaginary customers with a smile and somewhat lively conversation. (Mom: "Cindy? Who are you talking to in there?" Me: "Just Mrs Jones, she wants to buy a stuffed animal". Mom: "O....K....")
I believe that is why I was fine with the cancellation. I got to build my store/display/fort.
Since then I have been in front of my computer putting my items up in an online gift store to make up for the cancellation. Take a peek and see what you think! Gift shop here Not much time left before the holidays, but hey, I had fun building it! My eyes are kind of strained though.
