Of Crafts and Fairs

And boxes, and devilsticks and flowersticks, and clay animals and foods, and….

I had these in little boxes with question marks on them, so customers could pay $2.50, pick one, open it, and take home the animal.  Last year I had comics, too... but... procrastinating...

And craft fairs.

And about $100.

And thinking about getting new Sylvanians…. heh heh heh.

So, anyways, there was a craft fair today, and it was pretty fun.

Here’s what happened:

-Arrived, found friends, found my table, set it up.

-Said hello to Mr. Vested and like a gazillion other people I know who were there.

-Was bored.

-Read the first few pages of Fablehaven, talked to friends.

-Walked over to Mr. Vested’s booth, looked at his stuff, came back.

-Sat and was bored.

-Drank chai.

-Mr. Vested came over and looked at my stuff, went back.

-Drank more chai.

-Craft fair finally started!!!!

-A lot of people came by and bought my stuff.

-Sold out of mystery boxes. (little blind boxes with stuffed animals in them)

-People bought stuff.

-Let my eyes wander around all the other booths.

-More people bought stuff, but less after I sold out of the mystery boxes.

-Ate some of a bagel.

-Traded a monkey for a brownie made by some friends.

-Ate the brownie.

-More people bought stuff.

-Ate the rest of the bagel.

-Walked around and bought some stuff.

-Came back, people commented on stuff but didn’t buy.

-Packed up.

-Left.

So, yeah… it was pretty cool.

I should have had a FAQ board:

Are you the one with the knitted hippos?

No.

Are monkey hats for sale?

No.

Did you make this stuff? (because this isn’t a craft fair or anything)

Oh no, I’m just minding the shop for someone else.  Not.

Can my kids touch these? (a lot of parents scolded their kids for touching my polymer clay stuff O_o )

If they’re careful.

Are you the one with the FIMO mice?

No.  That’s two tables down.

My sculpey thing broke.  Can I get another one?

No, just glue it back together.

Whoa, you chopped off your hair?

Yes.

I remember you from last year, yeah?

Yes, you do, don’t you.

Are you in a sarcastic mood?

No, what gives you that idea?

Yup.  I’m super tired.

    To avoid confusion we should think up a different name for the new GS seeing as GS has already been taken….. maybe you could have a poll, or give the new GS some suggestions.
    p.s the new GS and the old GB were very impressed with your wares

      Hmmm… well, he can’t add a new name now that he has identified that name with his e-mail through WordPress, so he may just need to either say something at the beginning of each comment or have faith in the comment stalkers, hoping that they notice that his profile quilt thing is yellow, rather than purple.

      Hey comment stalkers!!! Look carefully! 😉
