4th of July Fair=Crapfest
So...As some of you may have read on Friday's post, I went to our very first craft fair for our Cottage in the Woods Co store...and it was a TOTAL let down. Majorly disappointing would be a slight understatement. There were plenty of people there...but it was in a small town (even less than Tipton where I live!) and I got the distinct impression that a lot of people didn't even so much as glance at my booth just for the fact that they didn't know me.
Lucky me, my aunt in-law (who sells handmade jewelry that she and my mother in-law make) registered both of us kind of late (not her fault, really) AND the three booths spaces next to mine were no shows, so I was stuck right on the end of the line of vendors. :/ I'm sure that didn't help my case either...even though everyone and their brother walked by there after the parade was over. What can you do? It was just a weird and disappointing day.
The next day (Saturday) was my first time at the Tipton farmers market and it didn't go much better. However, I was kind of expecting that being a holiday weekend and all. I did sell a few things, so I shouldn't complain too much, right? ;) It was also nice because I was set up next to another chick close to my age who happened to have a son close to Myka's age AND it was her first time there too, so it was nice to have someone to talk to...especially since I forgot to take a book or something else to keep me occupied! lol
Other than that I had a pretty enjoyable 4th of July weekend, despite the fact that I absolutely hate fireworks. This was the first year for a long time that I didn't have to go see any! Myka doesn't like them either, so I have a legitimate excuse...for now. Only time will tell if the Owen blood will take over and turn her into a pyromaniac like the rest of them. God help us all...
How was your 4th of July weekend? How was the fireworks show in your town? Did you do anything exciting?
