Only a month ago I was at my first craft show in, umm, almost twenty years, my small stint at the township craft bazaar on the eve of Covid notwithstanding. And this week I looked at the calendar more closely. The next Peninsula Flea show is this weekend!
I did get the cerise towels off the loom and hemmed and made a serious dent in my basket of yellow bobbins. However, yellow towels will remain a twinkle in my eye until the July 3rd show.
The village shops always took advantage of this end of June, first weekend in July for superior sales by piggy backing on the national art show in our township, the Boston Mills ArtFest. The ArtFest has been cancelled, last year and this. I presume these two weekends are highlighted in the village to keep up the ArtFest tradition, not to mention the thousands of visitors to the park who include Peninsula in their list of great things to do.
Beth will be at the show again this weekend, and probably bringing Caroline, for a "taste of the old weaving days", as if that poor child weren't once labor in her mother's restaurant. Any reason is good enough for me; I love the two of them, and the company.
I called Laura earlier this week to arrange a shopping day next week. To my surprise she said she would not be able, she would be out of town. Then she said Oh, I'll be back Thursday; we could go Friday. Ever Grandma, I asked where she was going. New Orleans. Who with? By herself. "Don't worry; I have an itinerary and everything!" OK.
On another topic, I surprised myself. I set up a website. The little square has me in its clutches. I looked at the website they sponsor. Like Facebook's marketplace, it had me flummoxed. On the other hand, I have grands who are coders, so I sent the link to Blake. Do you understand this, can you help me? I have a website and he is in charge of fixing it when I screwup EverythingOldisNewAgain dotshop. It simply kept falling into place.
I need to do more work on the title page, but the inventory for sale is in place. Please take a peek, and I'm up for suggestions.
