renegade holiday wrap up!

i'll have pictures put up once i am home today, but for now here is the text-based wrap. it's really encouraging doing big craft fairs because you can get a general idea of what people like and what people are buying. my tablemates susan (future cougar) and natalie (banana vinilio) could not have been nicer. though we had very diverse goods, we made our table set up work. on day 1 we all did really well and i made back my portion of the table fee and i made a profit of $1! day 2 was pretty terrible and i made a third of what i did on day 1. day 2 was also terrible because i felt flu-like symptoms and hey, according to this, it really does sound like the flu! that accompanied with digestion problems made me hide behind my display and shiver. i popped up a couple times to sell our wares, but mostly i was sitting down and quiet. sad face. james qylaar made a last minute card purchase which kind of made my day. i absolutely adore jordana and his stuff, especially the giraffes. if for some crazy reason you've never seen their stuff, check them out.

it was great to see val (make out goods), brianne (cutie cooties),jill huntsberger, souldier, the sew rad girls, lena nicelena, andrea owly, etc. it really feels good to be a part of the craft community next to people like this.

oh yeah and speaking of sick, when i woke up this morning, i had a non-stop nosebleed for 20 minutes. thanks webmd for having instructions how to stop a nosebleed.

on the upside: all of my xmas shopping is done except for zachary, but i know what i'm getting him but i'm waiting until my next paycheck goes into ye olde bank account.

also, i watched one of the best movies i have seen in a long time: look both ways. it's funny, sweet, and thought-provoking. it reminded me a little of me and you and everyone we know.

Current Location: work
Current Mood: blah
Current Music: conference

i hope you feel better! that sounds crappy.

i know what you mean about the show. renegade brooklyn was the same way. i did really well on the saturday but think i made 1/3 or even 1/4 of what i did sat. on sunday. i guess the serious shoppers go on the first day? i think there are misconceptions that "all the good stuff is taken" if you go on the second day (I have heard people say this).

i would think that people might scope things out on saturday, mull it over and come back to make purchases on sunday. i guess that with the overwhelmingness of a big craft show though, and also perhaps extreme weather, like not wanting to venture out into the crazy heat that's been present at the brooklyn shows, or, say, the december cold, people aren't going to make two trips. it seemed like people do this most at renegade chicago in sept. hang all day and visit with friends.
