Well, after seven wildly succesful shows, I experienced a bummer. Hardly sold a thing. Kept thinking things would pick up and at the same time wishing I was at home sewing.
The show was part of a high school production of Twefth Night. Learned throughout the day from the students, the few attendees and the teachers that Shakespeare doesn't draw in big crowds. To my chagrin, I also found out that not one penny had been spent on advertising!
Lesson learned! Since I had been a part of three previous productions at this school, I just took for granted that this one would be well attended too. Next time, I'll be sure to find out how many tickets have sold!
So Dianna and I made the most of the day by meeting the other vendors (sadly, they did not do well either), networking about future show opportunities, and taking lots of pictures.
My vintage tub's been looking a bit shabby lately so Dianna repainted it. It's all shiny and lovely now, especially since she painted on the name!
Near the end of the day, we got a little punchy. And by now, you all know how much I love a cheesy picture ~ hahaha!
(Inhaling the sweet scent of my handmade, lavender-infused bath salts)
With so few customers ~ seriously, there were maybe a total of 50 attendees ~ I considered hanging myself on the maypole, but instead...
Hope you're all having a not so bummer start to your summer!
