1. The items I thought would sell didn't and those I didn't think would sell did. Never underestimate what someone wants in a piece of jewelry.
2. Set up a lamp either on the table or next to it. Like flies to a zapper, the warm glow will draw the patrons in. At least that's what happened with the other woman that was selling jewelry near me in the Waterbury building.
3. I need better business cards... something more artistic... maybe with a photo in the background.
4. Similar to the business card thing, I need better price tags. Mine look way too homemade.
Rainy weather this weekend caused a significant drop in Art-A-Whirl attendance this year. Hopefully the weather next year will be nicer.
Speaking of the weather, the sky unleashed a fury of severe storms and tornadoes this weekend in the Midwest. Three tornadoes hit the Minneapolis-St. Paul metropolitan area, with the most damage occurring to neighborhoods in north Minneapolis. One of my best friends lives in north Minneapolis with his girlfriend. Fortunately, they were not hurt and their house is okay. Reading about the devastation in the paper and online and seeing the pictures is heart-wrenching. Please keep those affected by the major storms throughout the country in your thoughts and prayers.
For the second year in a row, I'm running Ragnar Relay (Great River). Some of the members have changed this year, but we've got a good core of veterans returning for more
If you wear jewelry, describe your favorite piece(s) of jewelry.
Future hubs gave me a beautiful sapphire ring in 2009 that I wear all the time on my right middle finger.
Have you ever experienced severe weather like a tornado (or hurricane, typhoon, flooding, etc.)?
When I was in high school, my mom picked me up from school and a storm was rolling in as we were heading home. We looked out the front window and saw a cloud slowly rotating above our car.
Have you participated in a Ragnar Relay or other relay event?
I did Ragnar and a duathlon relay last year.
