Although most of the weekend went by in a blur, a few sales really stood out. I saw my old pals Shirley and Linda, who have been buying my pots for many years. But Linda was not physically there. She has now moved out west, but she attended the show anyways via Facetime on Shirley's iPhone. She ended up buying a really nice vase. What can't an iPhone do? It's mind boggling all the possibilities. I was also very tickled to see my regular customer Cindy. She is a devoted fan of my work, and she announced that her now-fiancé asked her to marry him by presenting the ring on one of my small dishes. How nice to have a small part in such a moment!
The weekend also featured a lovely blizzard. I had to drive home on through it on Saturday night, all the way from Baltimore to DC at 30mph. Luckily, there weren't many people on the road, and everyone was being careful and courteous. But I'd rather not have that experience again any time soon. And although I had lowered my expectations for sales due to the forecast, it turns out that all of the motivated craft fans figured out how to get to the show anyways. Most of them came on Friday instead. So sales were not impacted at all. Hooray for craft fans!
