the friendly people who...

I can see the equation must work like this:

make cute pots +  people see cute pots = people who see cute pots are REALLY friendly to the potter!

So, yes, open studio Saturday and again 11-5 today.  What I am trying to say is you have NO idea how nice people are to me, and I am grateful for that.  If I made stacks of boring pots, would people treat me the same way when they look at a hippo bowl or mug with a pig?  I am glad that the fun in the work comes back to me from customers.

OK, highlights day one:
--the pumpkin scones I shared yesterday?  BIG SUCCESS. One guy ate 3....
--I was talked out at the end of the day, HOARSE!  I have never been talked hoarse at an event...
--whereas sometimes you have a lot of customers visit who buy nothing, I had a few customers who bought a LOT which is, I think, the most fun of all.....

Great to hear...where did you get those tiny spot lights? I like them.

Your set up looks great. I feel like I'm looking into a candy store.
Toes crossed for continued sales.

Pumpkin scones sound so good.
I love when it all works.

Glad it was a good show for you. I tend to make a warm spiced cider for the guests and to sooth my throat so I can keep talking.
