I was hoping today would be low key But I have a feeling it will be a busy day. We have to clean up from the festivities of yesterday. It was a huge success! I think almost every person I invited, showed up!! I think there was about 40 people here. And I believe I sold about 40-45 pieces.
It was a miserable and rainy day yesterday and I'm surprised people were willing to come out but I'm so glad they did. Most everyone shopped for gifts but a few shopped for themselves. I wrapped each piece in tissue and put them in the cute Amy Butler boxes I made and my guests were SO EXCITED when I told them they could PICK the boxes they wanted. I'm so glad I made them. I only ended up with one box left over.
The food was a hit. I didn't run out, but didn't have a ton left over, PERFECT. At about 3:30- it was actually MOBBED with people and I got a little nervous as I was the only one taking money and wrapping...I didn't really get a chance to talk to anyone. Just as they were checking out! My neighbors stopped by too, which I was so psyched about. Since I didn't have their emails I didn't have any way of reminding them, and I haven't been out and about to catch them outside to remind them.
Overall it was a huge success. Joe was around to keep the fire going in the fireplace. He brought me a huge bouquet of flowers to decorate with! And they were just the perfect touch. When it was all over, Joe said Let's do this EVERY weekend. lol
I wish I could!
Didn't get a chance to take any photos with people here, because it was just too crazy busy. But here are some shots right before people showed up.
I'll be photographing a few pieces today to list in the shop later, pieces that I had made for the show but didn't sell. So expect a few new listings in the shop.
Enjoy your Sunday!
