I’m not sure what it was about Lucketts this year, but I am more tired than I have ever been after a fair. My voice has been raspy and squeaky for three days, my foot that I broke when I was a kid is aching, my hips are sore, my nose is sunburned and I am totally exhausted. Now that I got the grumbling out of the way, I can also say this was my favorite fair ever. I’m proud of the stuff I brought, I was overwhelmed by people I met, I love that my family was there with me (and Mini)…
…and I am so thankful that I was left with very empty tents at the end of day two. I sold all but one of my painted pieces of furniture. This was my favorite fair, but it was also my busiest. Five of us were working in the tent on Saturday and we needed all five people to manage all of the shoppers. I would be chatting with someone or hugging someone or taking a picture with someone and I’d turn around and things were gone. It was total craziness. In a good way.
The group picture above was snapped seconds before the gates opened on Saturday and then I ran around and took a few quick shots of my booth. I’m so bummed i didn’t get more, but I had to put the camera away as the crowds started to descend.
(Please let me know if you’re the one who bought the caned French chair pictured above. That was one my favorites.)
We sold lots of t-shirts, but I do still have some available to sell online.
I’m hoping some of my blog readers and friends can share some pictures with me, since I was a bit of a failure in the photography department this year. I was too busy and then too tired. I think next year I’m going to ask someone to come out to be my photographer/social media guru for the event.
Anyway, there is so much more to tell, but I need some sleep and some rest and I’ll share more through the week. I did purchase a couple of things and some very sweet readers gave me some gifts I can show off later. Nighty-night.
