Yesterday I headed off to another Craft 2.0 – something I’d been working towards for months and a welcome distraction from moping about the house and answering people’s “how are you?” questions.
I’ve done a few fairs now but this one was different. People came, people were grumpy looking. They looked and touched then moved on. I made quite a few sales still and times were nice but something was missing from the fairs of old. I thought maybe it was just that I was bummed out but others said the same.
There’s a certain slickness about some of the stalls now and I miss the hokey homemade feel. And what wasn’t great was people touting for their own upcoming fairs – go away people you’re cluttering up the stall. Especially not cool when people work their guts out to make Craft 2.0 awesome.
The good news is that when the December 3 Craft 2.0 rolls around (it’s an after-work fair) I won’t have to make much at all.
That and someone that reads our blog told me that the post about Tom’s offensive t-shirt (link below) has been printed out and now adorns the tearoom noticeboard at Air New Zealand. Right on!
