I hoped for the best but would accept whatever...for now.
Unfortunately it turned out to be 'whatever'. The show was not well promoted even though I was assured it would be. It also seemed as though it was geared to a different client than would be interested in my funky boho style. I guess I could be discouraged but somehow I'm not.
In the booth next to me was a very nice man who had some fantastic jams and jellies. We chatted to pass the time and talked about our grandkids. Some one else gave me a tip on an art show that would be more suited to my style. After an absence of more than eight years I had forgotten how to pack for a show, so this was a good chance for a 'practice' run. And while re-packing I discovered something that would help enlarge my displays but actually reduce the amount of things I had to truck in and out. So even though is was a poor show (sales traffic wise) I had a whole different attitude than I might have had 8 years ago. Some of that might be that I have mellowed with age; might also be that I have an upcoming appointment with a lady who would like some of my jewelry for her cute little shop.
So I can only go up from here-right?!
