I have to admit...

I was a little disappointed that my Blankets and my "Just the Fleece" rug did not sell.  (I did sell 3 rugs and the last 4 bread cloths!)  I mean, they were ooohed and aaahed over, but then they just walked away!  I have to say, what's not to love?

There is color and texture...

..and down right luxury, all to be had for a competitive price!

So, disappointed I was, I chatted with Lou Ann and with Carol about it, and that seemed to help.  I am not looking to replace a full time salary, but I will insist on a good price for all my labor!   After all, I sheared those sheep!

When I got home Sunday night, I found that I had a sale on my Etsy shop, (I thought I had put it on Vacation Mode!)  and this weekend, I sold 2 blankets!  True they were at the friends and family price, (75%) but there is no booth fee or shop fee to take out.  I am also packing it all off to send to Nashville with Lou Ann's son, he is doing a craft fair there, and you just never know!  I suppose there is encouragement around every corner after all, I just have to keep looking for it!

Until next time, Happy Weaving, Tina

I'm thinkin' that word of mouth is a good thing! People who have one of your throws tend to tell others, etc..... It's the best advertising in the world, don't you think? In the meantime, we continue to do what we's a win-win.

I've gotten quite philosophical about sales - or lack of them. :) Eventually most everything goes - somewhere - sometimes as a donation to a worthy cause. If I can't get my price, I'd rather give it to someone or something I care about rather than reduce my price. :)

It's your first big show, and we all think they're beautiful. Maybe it just takes more shows, and some patience. Maybe if you'd display them on a big $200 t.v. this weekend!
