SAE Holiday Fair

Today, Peter and I did a fair at the Station Ave Elementary School in Yarmouth. He was plugging for a table at a high school because he thinks we’ll do better but I thought it was a  pretty good one. The school band played for a little while and then the chorus sang Christmas songs, and a few vendors / visitors recognized us from the Orleans show!

We had an especially small table today because someone (me) bought a new folding table and didn’t look at the size before loading it into her car and driving around with it for a week. So instead of our normal 8 ft table we had a 6 ft table. Oops. I was going to trade it in but then I thought we could get a 4 ft one and make an L with them, giving us a little more room in the future. Or an arm rest!

Here’s our little spot in the gym:

It was right near the entrance which is good and not-so-good. Good because people see us almost first! Not-so-good people people don’t always want to buy things right away. They want to look around, make a list in their head, and buy after. But by the time they hit the end they forget about us or already found other things to get instead.

This is Peter’s display:

Peter has patience I couldn’t even dream of, opening and closing all those little rings to create such beautiful chain mail jewelry (and bikini tops)!

We’re looking for a show to do on December 15th so if you hear of anything in the Cape Cod area, please let me know!

    I could never make chainmaille either. Peter must have crazy amounts of patience!
