Just to keep things interesting, today's schedule is gonna' fly. First I'll get downtown for my seniors' beading workshop. Looking forward to that; I didn't see them last week and have been missing them.
I'll then drive to the Jamestown campus of the college where I used to work. Where I'll help out however I can at this co-op selling venture where you can buy all manner of items which were lovingly created by hand:
- jewelry - as I've mentioned - of various kinds including fused glass pieces, and possibly other styles too...plus my own designs.
- stained glass,
- mosaic mirrors - I hope,
- stuffed horse heads on a stick for children...
- and no doubt more variety that I'm forgetting, too!
Oh! And I hear the items donated for raffle are phenomenal. Which is always something to look forward to.
All in all, I know our customers are going to have a great time. As shall I: there isn't the need to sit behind a booth looking wistfully at potential customers, and when I'm not actually working, I'll get to catch up with lots of former co-workers I haven't seen in a long time. That's one of the huge draws to me when I sign up for festivals at this college. I have some lovely repeat business and the people are great...if not as customers, I'll get more than my share of hugs today. And really, who doesn't love a day full of hugs?
Now, about your shopping list...perhaps you're in the market for some handcrafted, one-of-a-kind necklaces, hmmmmm?
