I liked that, day 3 of July Fest in Binghamton, NY and a delightful young lady tells me "your pottery is SPUNKY!". I have heard my work described different ways, but that is my favorite
(there is a certain type of person, let's say they look like a church lady, who will be looking at my work, sniff, look down their nose, and say "that's different" and although I have never thrown anything at anybody for saying that, I HAVE sat there and politely smiled that frozen smile you wear when you meet people like that thinking, as Dan Akyroyd would say during newcasts on SNL 30-40 years ago "Jane, you ignorant slut". No, I was brought up to be polite and keep my mouth shut.....)
ANYWAY, so its funny to be in the craft fair bubble. Any nuclear accidents? Did the Yankees win? I don't know! I was so tired Sunday afternoon I couldn't figure the change from a ten for $8.64.
BUT it was a miracle of a wonderful festival, and this was my third straight year at this one, and the best so far. OH GOSH I sold so much, best show I have had since the early Bush years? maybe even the late Clinton years? best show in a long time, yaaaay! I think I can thank my new buttery yellow painted display (see post below) and maybe also my new bag policy this year: I collect paper bags from the store (FREE!) and me and my sharpie decorate them like you see here.....
Just a great weekend, I am so happy. Anyway, Penny and I go to the retirement center today then I gotta unpack...and BIG THINGS coming later this week, more on that.....
