Thanks for popping in.
And if you came to the Open Days in Crowborough,
It was pretty hot today, but us crafters are a hardy bunch, aren’t we?
Dedicated to the cause and all that!
And Boy! Do we like to shop!
My demos started out fine.
Plenty of stock; will last for days easily, thought I…
Using Mod Podge as a glue sealant.
The Leaves were the first to go.
Then the Stags…
Then the 6″ x 6″ and 8″ x 8″ canvases…
Then the Birds…
And the trees and toadstools were leaving the building without any prompting from me at all!
I just kept going, changing stamps, changing canvas sizes,
giving away some of the samples as I went.
You know you’ve got a stock situation when a customer pulls a canvas board out of her stash bag, for you to use, so that you keep going with the demo! And I did.
And then, as quickly as they arrived,
they left again….
The hall was cleared in under an hour.
Me? I was next door to useless by the end.
Just piled into a bag of Walkers ready salted crisps
and stayed there!
I think it went very well.
The vibe was magic, and most of the guests stayed all day.
There’s always room for improvement, but all in all, and judging by all the positive feedback, it was a resounding success.
Yep, it’s as I always say:
Teamwork makes the dream work.
And we have one hell of a brilliant team.
But now I really must go and sit down or lie down,
before I fall down.
As the French say,
Je swee tray fatty gay !!
