And we didn't sell a damn thing. Not one. And it's not like everything wasn't beautiful. It was, but the cousin I was sharing a booth with barely sold anything either, just to friends. I, of course, felt totally discouraged at closing time. I wanted to cry, but Doug told me something really important. "At least you tried" he said. And I did, that's true. i did try. But it just wasn't our crowd. I haven't a doubt in my mind that when we open up shop in Chattanooga, everything single item will fly off the selves, but here in Steinhatchee,
However, I did have time to take a lot of photos of our first booth and I took plenty of breaks to get lunch with Doug while he wasn't filming the races, and wander around. I'm a bad shop-keep, but we shared a booth so I had someone to watch over everything the few times I left.
After an early morning and a long, long day, I am so ready for a nap. Have you set up a booth before? What were your experiences? Even though I have owned an entire store front, I realized today I don't like having a booth, but maybe I will need to give it another shot.
