Regardless of the weather, we had a blast! Mike came with me as head cashier, and overall support. I have the best husband in the whole world!
We did a trial setup in our garage a week before the show. I took pictures so that I would be able to quickly setup the following Saturday.
On the morning of the show, we were ready! Start time was 10:00 am. We were there and setup by 8:45. Most everyone was. We had rented a tent. The weather report predicted about a 20% chance of rain, and overcast skies. The show was scheduled to continue until 5:00 pm.
There was no opportunity to take pictures during the show. Our iphone was our credit card processor, and we didn't think to bring a separate camera.
What a great place Marietta is! Here is a view of some of the tents after the show ended with people still shopping. Such wonderful community support!
And with all the weather challenges, I still made some sales! Many of us did.
One of the local television reporters, Haley, stopped by and we chatted a bit. She purchased a pair of my earrings and said she would wear them on air. I took that opportunity to discuss a possible venture with the station where I would provide my jewelry for loan during a broadcast, in exchange for having a Mulligan Stew Jewelry credit listed at the end of the show. She said she would talk to the station producer about it. Fingers crossed here!
These are some of the pictures after the show end, when all of us started to pack up and go home. Yeah....the sun started to shine by then. There's Mike all bundled up.
