Sometimes a Lesson is Learned the Hard Way

I’m exhausted and quite disappointed too! The show I participated in this Saturday turned out to be very unsuccessful for me, but I think was pretty successful in general… Most people were looking for Holiday gifts or decorative items, which as you know is not my “thing”. I did however sell some small items, silver pieces, glittered pinecones etc. I also sold the beautiful round French table to a wonderful couple who was actually on their way to the gym and decided to stop… lucky me!

Now that I got that off of my chest I also wanted to say a BIG thank all of my followers, friends, neighbors and relatives who stopped by to say “hi” and shopped at all of the booths… some for themselves… some for others! My daughters bought some jewelry at one of the inside vendor’s booths so they were quite happy… and I got to try some crepe’s from Monique’s Mobile Crepes. Have you even heard of such a thing as a mobile crepe truck? OMG!!! Let me tell you those crepes were fabulous, my favorite was the “Nice Pear” which had whipped goat cheese in it! I think I’m going to try to beg her to come to my neighborhood one weekend morning, I would TOTALLY stand in line in my PJ’s with a cup of coffee and patiently wait my turn for sure! Or maybe I can convince her to play music over a loud-speaker and drive around the neighborhood like the ice cream truck… how AWESOME would that be!

I totally forgot to take pictures of my booth… but this is what the inside of my garage looks like now… It’s so sad!

I’m hosting Thanksgiving and cannot put ANY of this inside!!! Feel for me please and be thankful this is not your garage! By the way… I don’t think I will be able to live up to the promise I made my Hubby to get him space inside the garage before it gets too cold… sorry babe Sad smile  I feel awful about it!!

I hope you all have a wonderful Thanksgiving! I’m looking forward to ours!!

Until next time…

My Signature


  1. You live and learn. I’m so happy you sold the round table. It was too fabulous. Happy Thanksgiving, my friend. Let’s get together next week.


  2. You just never know, every sale is totally different. But please don’t be discouraged, your pieces are beautiful! … Have a wonderful Thanksgiving!


  3. I hear you, yes all the pieces I made and many no time to finish…have not sold with the exception of one but yes I now know a show….in November do more Holiday and fun smalls…also finding when they have so much to choice from on a event functions VS day in day out at the shop…..I have better luck….at the shop with the furniture
