What to say…what to say…

OK. Are you ready for this?

I sold out first weekend.

Ahhhhhhhhhhh!!!!!

24 hand-crafted mugs: 1 left

60 hand-crafted ornaments: 6 left

8 pottery dishes: 2 left

Jewelry: I sold a bunch but still have plenty more!

—————–

To sum it up, the pottery was a hit.  That entire element of my booth is gone!

Now I’m left trying to figure out what happened?  I had dropped my mug price from $40 to $30 and the ornament price-point was between $15-$18. They flew off the shelves!  Did I price them too low? or just right?  …I don’t know!    I’m still kind of sitting here in shock?!?  I still have three events to attend.  Did I over-do it and sign up for too many events or was this a fluke?

What I do know, is that I am incredibly thankful.  This only happened because people were kind enough to come out and invest in my handmade things. What’s also nice is that tiny tinge of panic in my belly has gone away.  You know that crappy little voice that resides in your gut shooting out terrible thoughts like: “Have I made the right choices?”, “Are these items good enough to put out there to the public?”, “will anyone come?”  “will I sit at my booth for 6 hours not selling anything”…oh the list goes on with the yucky thoughts one’s brain can spew… I get to shut that down, stick out my tongue and say to the nagging voice – SHOVE IT!

That’s kind of fun.

Next show is tomorrow.  My jewelry designs have taken on some subtle changes.  I really like the direction they are going…

So from here on in, my booth will be a jewelry booth.

And I plan on relaxing a little bit. Technically I’ve got done what I need to do.  Now I can enjoy and have fun and not take myself so seriously?

Yeah, I’ve earned it!

whew…..
