|Before things went downhill.|
It basically went like this:
"The forecast said rain, but look at how high those clouds are! We'll be fine."
"It's just a little drizzle. We've had this before."
"Hey, do you think it's weird that a handful of vendors didn't even show up?"
"Maybe we should check the radar."
"So, uh, what's our emergency weather plan?"
The show was scheduled from 8 to 2, but we jumped ship at 11:30. It had been raining for almost 4 hours by then and the tent decided it was cool to drip water all over the tables. A yellow blob on the radar was heading our way, there were NO shoppers, and we had barely turned a profit.
So as annoying as it was to pack up in the rain and get wet after not making any money, at least my product was okay. The woman next to us sold a lot of pillows and cloth items, and her tent wasn't waterproof (it was more for blocking the sun). By the time she pulled the plug, water was streaming down onto her merchandise.
|It looks sunny, but that's just my Instagram filter. It was STILL raining at this point.|
But on the bright side: wine! After we left, we had ourselves a big Italian lunch and then Hubsey went to visit his grandparents while my BFF and I hit up some local boutiques--including a wine bar. It ended up being a good afternoon (once our pants dried), and I actually picked up some things to make a fun Christmas project. But more on that later.
How was your weekend? Drier than mine? More profitable? (I hope so.)
