Five Dollar Tip

At the farmers market recently a young girl, about twenty, spent $15 on my pottery and handed me a $20 bill. When I handed her a $5 change, she said "No you keep it, your pottery is well worth it".  I've never gotten a tip for my pottery before. Nice to know my labor is appreciated..

  1. Happy Labor Day, Linda. Hope you enjoy your tip...that's rather unusual!

  2. Hi Barbara, thanks, I posted in clay buddies and lots of potters have apparently received tips, first time for me.

  3. Linda, that combination of blue and tan is my favorite! Congrats on the tip!

  4. Hi Rian, thanks, it's one of my best selling glazes, I love how it breaks to brown and sometimes gets those blue spots inside.

  5. Some body brought that young woman up well. Lovely that she shows her appreciation.

  6. Hi Sue, thanks, I was definitely impressed

  7. God for you1. A tip is a nice surprise and well deserved
