EX-Boyfriends Treasury

Walk on the Moon created this treasury and included my Electrician's button. ... which coincidentally was drawn by my ex-husband. So it fits the treasury well.

Here's the link to the treasury for as long as it is up.

The Electricians Buttons is now on ZIBBET in choice of colors.

Portable Graffiti and The Purple Rat do a craft show

Portable Graffiti and The Purple Rat do a craft show...

I have not done a craft show since 1990. So, this was an adventure. The tent and button displays, counters, banners, whole booth that I worked many years to perfect, no longer exists. So we just decided to wing it. We took our dining room table and just put buttons in tubs for people to sift through.

My daughter, The Purple Rat used the 2 chairs we brought with us and set an old board across them to make a table for her paintings and origami. I think it looked rather nice.

We stayed in the 100 degree heat all day and bought the most delicious Grouper Sandwich. We brought in $10.00 in sales, and spent $13.45 on a grouper sandwich and sweet potato fries to share.

There were even other Etsy shopkeepers there to talk to, which made for an enjoyable day.

We split at around 6 o'clock, I think; I don't wear a watch. And we got out and home just before the thunder, lightning and torrential downpour of rain.

So, all in all it was a lucky day. I had put my Etsy shop on vacation mode for the first time, and as it turns out there was no need to. As soon as I put the shop back to "open" I made several sales.

Moral of the adventure for me: Stay home and sell on Etsy. No more craft shows until I get back to the northeast.

[The rusty old "Stuff for Sale" sign was on a palm tree behind our tent.]
