This was our first time at this show and I think we did great! We sold 12 of our bowls, three necklaces, and a bracelet. We sold "All Fired Up" on Saturday, but you wouldn't believe how many people looked at that bowl before it was finally snatched up on Saturday. Mom was happy that two of her bowls, Forlorn and Tribal, sold also. She thought it would take a certain personality to really like those two bowls, but those two bowls must have spoken to the ladies who bought them.
Friday night was the opening for the patrons from 5:00pm to 7:00pm and then opened to the public from 7:00pm to 9:00pm (this was a long day for us). On Saturday the show opened from 9:00am to 5:00pm. Though the morning started out really slow because of all the rain.
Friday night was also great because we found out that we were accepted into the Frankfort Library Art Show in November. On the drive to Monticello mom and I were talking about emailing the woman in charge of the Frankfort show to see what we needed to do to improve on to get into the show for next year. It was wonderful news to actually find out we were accepted. Of course I am now in panic mode because that is a three day show and I want to make sure we have enough inventory. We now have four more shows for the season; two one day shows, one two day show, and one three day show. We are going to have to be bead and bowl making machines for the next few months!!!
I wish I thought of taking a photo of mom and I all dressed up, mom actually wore a dress. We even matched, both of us were in black and white. I did take a photo of the necklace mom and I put together, right before the show, so I could wear it Friday and Saturday. Mom worked on stringing one side and I worked on stringing the other side.
