Memorial Day I'm remembering all those who gave their lives to keep our country free by keeping the light on in my lantern. I got these LED lights to test in my lantern; they'll last twelve hours and they run on a battery. If I had brought lanterns to the strawberry jubilee farmer's market I think I would have sold a ton of them.
flowers? I discovered a small box of them when I was unpacking my studio boxes. I sold a ton of them at the show. They aren't on magnets or anything, they are just do-dads and they were snatched up. I suppose some of them can be ring dishes or spoon rests, perhaps meditation bowls. I couldn't find my pendants but I think I could have sold lots of those as well.
new booth shelves which I now have set up in my studio. Sorry I didn't bring my camera to the show, next time. I sold several of my overlapping or stacked towers and they were well received by those visiting my booth. Folks remarked they really liked my work and found it refreshingly unique.
Blairsville Farmer's Market location are it's covered so I don't have to set up a tent. I can back my car right up to the spot and those visiting the market walk down a center aisle. There is piped in music and permanent restrooms and lighting. Art and craft booths are interspersed among those selling produce and other hand made or home grown items. I was between an alpaca yarn vendor and a soap and lotion vendor. Both have been at the market several years in a row and had lots of repeat business.
studio is almost totally unpacked so I hope to have a photo or two for you soon. Yesterday Gary and I had a smashing party. Gary said he felt worse about smashing pottery than he thought I did. Several items were broken in moving and others were prototypes with various flaws or cracks. Other prototypes and pottery are now sitting on my new shelves for review or to be organized and repacked for the next show. The kitchen is almost ready for a counter top so stay tuned for a sneak preview soon. Hope you are having a relaxing holiday. Thanks for reading and for all your comments and encouragement.
