    Unhappy Arlington and Di

    Well, apart from the fact that:

    1. it was blowing a gale
    2. it was piddling down
    3. it was dreadfully organised
    4. there were 8 stall holders and out of those:
    5. a woman across from me was selling cheap imports
    6. there was potato printing for kids in the centre of the tables
    7. around 150 people came through the 'doors' but nobody was buying
    8. I sold the grand total of - zilch

    it wasn't a bad day! Thankfully, it was only 11 til 3.

    I am obviously disappointed but not desperately so because my table looked really good (I didn't take a pic, maybe tomorrow) and because I've dipped my toe in the water. Also nobody sold much or anything so I know it wasn't just me. To be honest, it was totally the wrong venue at the wrong time of year. Hey ho...

    Oh Di, I am so sorry that you didn't sell anything. You just never know until you do an event, do you. At least you got your stuff and name out there and sometimes you get buyers after the fact. A big hug from me and I was thinking of you today and hoping all went well. You can have a nice rest now and a big glass of wine ... which is just where I am off to do.

    There's a lot of muttering in the kitchen going on about me giving my oh a hand - shame!

    Well Di, it wasn't quite that bad in Truro but it wasn't much better. What's wrong with these people? The press has been full of recession again, so I think that's what killed it this weekend. I like your attitude though.

    Oh poor Di! Not such a good day then... Well there is one way of looking at it - there isn't really a way that you could have a worse experience! Potato printing has to take the biscuit! So really...the only way is up!! Think positive! Big higs!

    Thanks guys - do you know what, I've quite amazed myself with my attitude.

    I had days like this with the wood in the past and it always depressed me dreadfully. Either I'm older and wiser or its the support of you lot - my vote goes to the latter.

    Carole - comradely hugs, sweetie.

    Ooopsie!! How did that slip though!! (At least it isn't an entry in the Urban Dictionary!!)

    Well - since it seems to be so popular we had better go for some croup higs hadn't we??
