Success in Sin City!!

!!!!!!!THANKS!!!!!!!


I brought 'hard walls' to St. John's, and I really liked the set-up a lot more than any other I've tried so far. It sure fills up and loads down the car, though, and set-up/take-down takes a lot longer, but I think that while it is up for a multi-day Fair, it might be the way to go for me.
I was really lucky in St. John's, and am grateful for the wonderful response to my work; I sold out of Jiggle Birds...
...I sold out of my mummers (with copper stands, wide enough to put candles on)...

...and I sold out of my caribou (which was traumatic, funnily enough!)... a biologist was so pleased with them, she bought two, and said that they were exactly right, the way the walking caribou lifted their feet, and the way the grazers leaned over. That really made me happy, as I worked for about two months this fall carving and recarving my mold for these animals!

Bowls... many of which are in new peoples' houses, and getting wrapped for Christmas!! It was a great show for me, and I feel incredibly positive about the whole experiecne; I met many wonderful people, and was fortunate in my shared experience with fellow-booth holders... our space was great!!
THANK YOU TO ALL!!
