Fruitlands Craft Show

This weekend, I participated in a craft show for the first time in years! It was held on the grounds of the gorgeous Fruitlands Museum right here in Harvard, so I thought it would be a nice way to get back into the swing of things.

... and it's not exactly a bad place to spend a couple of days. The hill on the left there is Mt. Wachusett, a fun little ski mountain (and nice views to Boston and all around if you're ever in the mood for a nice not-very-strenuous hike).

Hubby Carlos helped me set up the EZ-up tent, and I sold a *lot* on the first day - so that by the time I took a decent booth photo, a lot of stock was already gone!

The scarf rack was looking decimated, too, by the end of Sunday. And to top it off, I've got leads on two new galleries to sell through, including the shop at Fruitlands, I'll post updates when I deliver pieces to them - but I've got to get back to weaving pretty quick, the Artist's Market at the deCordova Museum in Lincoln is coming up fast, as is a one day show on the Saturday after Thanksgiving in Boston. And I've got several custom orders to get cracking on as well!

All in all, a great show and a wonderful way to get back into the swing of things! And it was such a well-run show. The Harvard Lion's club was there selling yummy treats, there was live music, and I was quite impressed with the level of work at the show (I bought a wonderful bowl that looks like a chicken from my booth neighbor - it's currently on my kitchen counter holding eggs from our chickens in it). And the foot traffic was fantastic, I thought.

Thanks, so much, to everyone that stopped by - it's always nice to chat with folks, it makes the day pass (especially Sunday, which was very hot). I'll be there again next year.
