Notes from booth 143

The first half of the Originals show at Lansdowne Park is over (if you call 4 out of 10 days half). The show is closed today so new exhibitors can move in to take the place of those who are only there for the first 4 days of the show.
Today is a "day off" which means I will run around like mad trying to do errands and finish dyeing and printing for the final 6 days of the show. One of the things I enjoy about doing shows out of town is when you're done you're done. At home there is always something else to be done.
I managed complete some work today, so will have a few new offerings for the last part of the show.
Thanks to everyone who came by in the first four days. It's great to meet new people and to connect with long-time customers. I saw one woman who bought a Dancer t-shirt from me at the Winnipeg Folk Festival, perhaps 10 years ago. She bought a new shirt for herself and onesies for her newborn twins. Cool!

Originals Christmas Craft Sale

Come by and visit me at the Originals Christmas Craft Show and Sale at Lansdowne Park, Dec.6-16. We got a last minute call from the show organizers asking, if we'd like to return this year and after some careful cogitation and offers of help from angelic friends we decided to participate. The hours are from 11 am to 9 pm, monday to friday and 10 am to 6 pm on saturday and sunday. The show will be closed on Monday Dec. 10. Here's what things looked like before set-up on wednesday. After many cups of complimentary coffee, things came together in time for me to pick the boys up from school. If you can make it to the show, you'll find me in booth 143.
