|Stop in the name of HEAT!|
One of the goals I gave myself was to try to learn as much as I could -- about who my customers are, what they like and don't like, how to succeed at a craft fair, and why I make what I do. Here's the first lesson I learned (more to follow in future posts).
Lesson #1: Good weather doesn't always mean good sales.For months, I worried about cold drizzly rain, typical for June in the Northwest and certain (I thought) to keep people away. But this weekend was the hottest of the year -- a sizzling 80 degrees F. I was lucky to have a table in the shade for most of the day. It was fun seeing folks wearing real summer clothes -- sun dresses, tube tops, silly t-shirts.

|It's all the same to me.|
