|Last Finishing Touches for Friday's Show|
|Necklace that Sold that We Were|
Going to Tear Apart
The Splendor necklace sold within the first 10 minutes of the show. A woman came by, tried it on, and said she would come back. She came back and bought it and she wants us to make her a pair of earrings to go with the necklace. About an hour after that necklace sold, a woman came by asking if we had made another Splendor necklace. I told her it had sold and then I rememberd her from the Art on the Wabash show. She really liked the Splendor necklace I was wearing (made with Kelley's beads) and was hoping I would sell it. I told her we could make another one, but I didn't have any more of those blue egg beads from Kelley. I said if I could buy more eggs from Kelley I would try to make another necklace and let her know when I did. I know it is not good business not to sell a piece, but I just can't let that necklace go.
The frog necklace sold near the end of the show. There were two couples waiting for the group that was lookin at the necklace to put it down so they could snag it. That was very gratifiying that we had a whole group of people who wanted that necklace.
Mom and I did really well talking with the customers and telling them about how we make the bowls, lampwork glass beads and Viking Knit. We also had a presentation running on the laptop so they could see the process of how we make everything.
Saturday and Sunday was the same thing. We sat by the booth working on Viking Knit or regular knitting, we would stop and talk with customers when they stopped at the booth. If either of us were working on the Viking Knit we would show them what we were doing, so people seemed really interested in learning what mom and I do. I am really looking forward to participating in this show again next year. I had a blast and I think mom did too.
Here are some photos of the the gallery set up for the show.
Mom and I took today off to recover plus I wanted to play with paina's from Shannon at Missficklmedia.
Peacock Blue (Utopia) color. The color looks so gorgeous when Shannon does her pieces that I have my fingers crossed that the same will happen for us. I will take photographs of finished pieces - if they don't look awful. I am now off to play.
