Weekend at the Craft Show

I spent the past weekend at the Carolina Craftsmen Christmas Classic (don't try to say that five times fast). It was fun, exhausting, entertaining--in other words, a 3-day craft show.

If I had a dollar for everyone that walked into my booth, looked at a basket and said, "How cute!" and then walked out without buying anything, I could retire. It was huge fun though, to have lots of other people say "How cute!" and then proceed to buy two or three!

Another aspect of craft shows is that I get to spend time in the booth with some of my favorite people. Friday, my booth buddy was the wife of the Cousin-who-shall-not-be-named. She's a fellow homeschooler and, even though we spent 11 hours working a craft booth, it seemed like a day off! Thanks, Leanne!

Saturday and Sunday, Lori, the "other Bede Sister", was with me. She's amazing at staging the booth. Sales are always better when she's in charge of set-up. Yay, Lori!

How was your weekend?
