As expected, Friday's sales were up a bit. We sold 32 pieces. And boy were we tired by the time the event closed!
Here are some photos from the day.
Since I was driving, my friend Tim (who is helping me run the booth) was able to take photos of some of Portland's gorgeous downtown. These are taken from the Morrison Street Bridge as it flings us over the Willamette River.
I had the pleasure of meeting two delightful blog readers (mother and daughter) who stopped by to say hello. I was tickled pink to learn they were now living on five acres and raising Dexter cattle and chickens! Whoo-hoo!
Funny T-shirts du jour:
Portland, I've learned, is a most astoundingly tattooed city. I'm going to guess that 75% of the people passing by had tattoos ranging from discrete to elaborate.
Here was a VERY tall Fraulein who posed with a tankard. With her admittedly high heels, she probably topped 6'2".
These two adorable children were happy to show off their face painting.
This little girl had very long and pretty hair. So did her mother, though I couldn't snatch a photo.
I noticed a couple of fashion trends that were pretty distinctive. One was florescent footwear...
...and the other (for women) were long filmy skirts over shorter underskirts. (The photos are sometimes out of focus, sorry.)
God knows I've seen worse fashion trends, so I didn't mind these at all.
Things got rowdier as the evening progressed and Tim and I spent a lot of time guarding the stock on the shelves, so I didn't get a lot of photos. We were both exhausted by the time we packed up the booth at the end of the evening and departed. However I'm happy that sales, while not spectacular, are steady and solid. Yeah!
