So... after the tree drama - that was Wednesday evening. Thursday Betty and I were going to meet to set up our table for the Christmas Bazaar. I think that something is always working against us ~ I don't know.
Here Ricky, his sister and I are cutting on the tree because I called the city to see if they have any means of disposing of the tree. When the trees last year fell across the street they had a wood chipper out here taking care of it. I called the city and they did not have any info and they were going to call me back and never did. So we were outside cutting and bundling the branches together and it got time to leave to go meet Betty. We went to meet her, got home and Mom and my SIL had stuff ready to BBQ. I'm the BBQ'r in the family so I was outside in the dark BBQ-ing by flashlight. That get's done and I've got a few last minute things to do before Friday rolls around for the sale.
Friday is here, we drive to Paris to be there for the sale which starts at 9:00 am and I'm a little excited because I see that they have some signs on the bypass (which were very, very small) but then I take a good look at what they say. I thought that it was 9:00am to 4:00 pm - NOPE how wrong was I!!! It was 9:00 am to 8:00 pm. Trust me, 11 hours is a long time. Especially when you are not really doing anything. The show was not really advertised so we hardly had any sales. We did have a few more on Saturday ~ I think that it was mostly vendors who were all buying from each other - but it was a little less to pack home with us.
This picture is the front looking in at our booth. This was when we set up.
This was the first day when we got there and this was off to the left of the booth. Our tables were in a "U" shape and it was a lot nicer than the last show. At least we were inside away from the weather, although it was a beautiful weekend!
This was to the right of our booth. This table had most of the cards in the baskets.
We could of done better, and I think that we will try it again in a couple of weeks. We have all of this stuff and we need to get rid of it. I don't know for sure yet...
I'm sorry for the long post... but this is what I've been up to. In the next couple of days I will try to be back. I've got some computer issues to deal with to. But I will be back, back with bells on!
Have a great afternoon!
