Have you ever had a stressful week and decided to give yourself a “Monday off” and then, suddenly, somehow it’s Tuesday at 5 and you’ve eaten badly, accomplished little and seriously pushed the limits of not-flossing?

……So, anyhoo, like I was saying, it was a beautiful day for the Rose Bowl. A bit chilly at first but it warmed up and the crowds really turned out.
However there were a few bumps.
Nicki had promised that she would only sell the signs at the non-Rose Bowl markets she attends. But I thought that, as long as we agreed on a sale price, there was no harm in us both having them at Rose Bowl. So we set a price and all was good.
However, whenever anyone picked a sign up in my booth and I told them the cost I might have well as said “It’s $X and dipped radioactive lye!” they put it down again so fast.
Nicki, however, sold two of them.
Which made me like her less.
But then she asked me to make a few more for her.
Which made me feelings towards her….complicated.
My other sales were great! I went through a ton of coasters, tea light blocks, lots of letters and several of my magnetic chalk boards. So, yay!
And several other pieces I’ve yet to share here.
But I didn’t sell a stick of furniture. I’m not exaggerating. Not a stick. No one even asked about it. Not even a “could you do better on the price” negotiation fail. Just…..nothing.
Now, to be fair, I’ve had days when I sold all my furniture so perhaps it was just the Universe attempting to find balance.
Or perhaps I should just give all my furniture to Nicki…….
