Happy Thanksgiving!

What a week it has been! I'm now really thankful for a few days off. Megan and I will be spending Thanksgiving at a friend's house...we're looking forward to the good food and good company.
I've been meaning to share these pictures of a purchase I made on Etsy about a month ago...it's a handknit pear filled with lavender. I love everything about it...the color, the texture, and of course--the scent.

It came packaged like this...ready for gift giving. I just love it. Check out Carrie's Etsy Shop
Hand-Me-Downs. Cute stuff, great prices.

Last Saturday I had a booth at a craft show. The location was a high school, and it was a fundraiser for the band boosters. My little table was filled with earrings...and at the end of the day it was filled with more earrings. I sat and made earrings all day long--and only sold 4 pairs in the course of the day--3 pairs to people I knew (and who work for the library). I ended the day being $5.50 in the hole--minus $2.00 for the booth space, and I spent $3.50 for a bowl of their locally famous loaded potato soup. I once again took my box of earrings in to work on Monday...sold more earrings there before 8AM than all day Saturday. Word of mouth buzzed through the library, and it's been a good sales week. After Thanksgiving weekend, (the box went home with one of my 'biggest' customers whose sisters and sis-in-laws want to see them) I'll finally post them in my Etsy shop.
Happy Thanksgiving!!

I guess selling at work is working better for you than a craft fair!

I hope you have a wonderful Thanksgiving!
