Craft Show Craziness...

Yesterday was the Holidays in the South Bazaar here at Fort Rucker.  I am so tired today, but it was a lot of fun!

The great things about the show were:
*location- we were in an old aircraft hanger, which was great, and very fitting, being its the home of Army aviation and all
*traffic- there were tons of people.  At one point I went to get a soda and it was hard to even get through the aisles there were so many people
*people- I got to see quite a few friends and make some great new contacts, too.  
*the niceness- seriously.  All the ladies from the spouses club were so incredibly nice, and I even got to meet one of my "competitors", and she was just so sweet and nice, too.
*the purses- lots of Hero On My Arm bags got new homes yesterday, yeah!

The not so great things about the show were:
*no electricity- there was electricity in the building (duh), but they didn't offer it to the vendors.  I would have loved to have taken my embroidery machine with me and personalized on the spot.
*the sauerkraut- for some reason, they served bratwurst and sauerkraut at the show.  We got there at 7 am to set up, and by 8, the smell of sauerkraut was just everywhere.  By lunchtime I think we had just gotten used to it and it sort of went away, but it was the strangest thing.

Overall, it was a great day.  I spent most of today putting everything back (tables, picture frames, etc.) in its right place and packing up what inventory I had left over to send on to the next show.  This week will be busy, busy, busy with orders but I hope to have some time off next week for Thanksgiving and Christmas decorating!

You are listening to When Its Christmas Time in Texas from George Strait's Merry Christmas Strait to You, another really great Christmas CD.
