Oh my goodness, yesterday we had a phenomenal day of sales. We expected Friday to be better than Thursday (which it was) but you know how much better? We sold 43 pieces. Wow!
We began the day at a local Safeway grocery store to get ice. I happened to notice this box of watermelons sporting the proud label of "locally grown" right above the lettering on the box announcing the watermelons came from Bakersfield, CA (way way way down south). Just wondering how local "locally-grown" foods are....
The urban 'scapes from the event's location never fail to fascinate me. I'm a country girl through and through, but a dose of the city once in awhile is wonderful.
There were several bands playing throughout the day. My booth isn't far from the stage, so it can get noisy. I dubbed this group the Shirtless Wonders since they were performing shirtless. It was a warm day but not that warm, so I'm guessing this was part of their schtick? Maybe?
This very nice fellow came into the booth sporting some extraordinary ear-wear. I asked permission to take a photo. All I can say is...OUCH.
Some of the T-shirts du jour:
I thought this was an interesting religious perspective, but apparently it has something to do with a music group.
This photo is for my girls, who love Dilbert.
I thought this shirt encompassed a lot about modern culture.
This shirt was worn by an extremely well-endowed young lady who wasn't afraid to state the obvious.
Anyway as the day progressed and we sold more and more pieces, I removed first the lowest shelf of one of the shelving units...
...then the shelf above that.
When we broke down the booth for the night, we removed one of the smaller shelving units altogether and are down to three units. It's best to keep shelves looking full, so we'll keep removing shelves or even full units as needed.
Two readers made their way to the booth to say hello, both delightful gentlemen whom it was a pleasure to meet. One fellow was lucky enough to visit when there wasn't a band playing and the crowds in the booth were fairly thin, but the other poor fellow came when the stage was noisy and the booth was packed (so I didn't have much of an opportunity to become acquainted). However I wanted to thank both men for taking the time to come say hello.
