So, as you know, I've been spending many days preparing for my Mother's Day weekend show. Well, it was last weekend....and.....to put it frankly.....it sucked. I mean..it really, really sucked!
I should have known it was going to be bad...all the signs were there! I realized the Thursday night before the first day of the show that we were suppose to set up and I realized this about 15 mins before going to the airport to pick up my mom..who, by the way, was flying in to help me with this HUGE show. Then, her plane was about 45 mins late. We get to the craft show site and the flippin canopy sides don't fit....my husband tried for over an hour to get all four sides zippered. It ended up he only got 3 out of the 4 done.
Friday was the first day and I sold $55 for the entire day. Sat, the 2nd day, around 4 pm we had a huge rain storm and when I tried to pull the table under the canopy - it collapsed WITH ALL MY KNITTING ON IT! So, since I had only sold one $2 card for the ENTIRE DAY I decided this was just not going to fly. We packed up and left. So disappointing. I was fit to be tied! I had such a pretty booth too.....here are some pics....
Nice, right? I was so happy with how it turned out.
So, that was my fabulous weekend. The only good to come out of it was that I got to spend time with my mom for the entire weekend!
