So while I was at home, where it was also cold and rainy, I was inside snoozing in comfort.
Meanwhile 400 miles away, she unloaded in the rain...
|two hours into set up and it's still dry in the tent|
|four hours into set up - |
note lunch on table....cookies and water
...sold in the rain and froze her tail off in the rain. Such dedication for me and the acquisition of monies for my catnip! I should keep her right? Better to send her out into the rain, than risk freezing my whiskers off and getting drenched. The results would be horrific! My fur would take days to return to it's glorious shine and my whiskers or lack thereof.... oh my fur stands on end just thinking about it! Let's move on, shall we.....
It was so cold, one very kind customer took pity on her numb fingers and gave her their extra set of gloves on Saturday. If you are reading this, a huge thank mew!!!! If her fingers had gotten frostbite, however would she feed me?!? It really was that cold! Four shirts and a heavy sweatshirt on Friday was not enough. So on Saturday she wore four shirts, a denim jacket AND a sweatshirt trying to stay warm.
So now you've got a feel for how bad the weather was. And you might be dreading what I'm about to tell you regarding the show sales.....
There were very few people on Saturday due to the cold, rain and hail. A day that should have been the best of the three days. It was the worst sales on record for a Saturday. And that's thirteen years worth of sales data.
However, sales were very good on Friday and 45 minutes before closing on Sunday.
The afternoon sun and warmer temperatures Sunday afternoon certainly helped convince a few people to come out. And sure made it a lot nicer for load up.
This show was probably one of the craziest, unpredictable, out of the norm show sales yet. But in the end when the trailer was packed and she was ready to go....
....there was very little to pack up!
How purrfect is that?!!!
So you see, it was all good!
Now where is my catnip?!?!!
