So, I made 22 hats because of the show we had last Friday evening. 22 hats and I sold 1. But the evening was not a total loss. One, because it’s a lot of fun. Two, because it is for a good cause. Three, because instead of a raffle this year (which I won last year), they did a 50/50. You all know what a 50/50 is. Folks buy tickets to go in the pot and the winner gets half and the host gets the other half.
I won that one this year, too. So, I actually walked out with three figures in dollars.
But now I have a whole host of hats. I have hats galore and I need to
get rid have an event where they can be moved.
Etsy has something called Christmas in July and I am going to really deep discount those items I have in stock that are ready to move. I hope this will get some of the items out into the world. I also have a hat order for a single hat that I need to get done. I can concentrate on taking new photos of what I have in stock and putting them in a special section of the shop.
Today is day 22 – it is the first day of the fourth week. My free day Friday was great and this week there were no problems with a relapse. Mr. Honey purchased the cookies I told you about and he pouted on Friday when he saw I hadn’t ripped into the Lenell cookies. I took them with me to the show and the wonderful April and marvelous Ellen did them justice. (BTW, everybody sold one item each.) We didn’t have the same amount of traffic and there were about 4 times more vendors and we were in the back. We asked to be closer to the door next spring. Gina is going to have the event just once a year in the spring which means, for us, we will have to entice folks to purchase warmer weather gear as well as make cooler weather gear. It will be a challenge but we can do it.
Anyhow, that part is going well. I am about 6 pounds down though I don’t really want this to come down to a numbers game while I pay attention to the numbers. The real goal is to have lost a good amount for vacation in the fall where there will be lots of walking – hopefully, this thing that feels like a pulled muscle will be positively resolved. So we move onward.
Anyone want a hat?
