Naturally, typing “weekend update” made me think of Saturday Night Live, and now I’m thinking about how awesome it would be if that particular skit was on TV every night. It could be the prelude to the Daily Show and Colbert Report, more for the news-y bunch instead of straight politics. Somebody make this happen.
Anyway, it was another busy weekend over here! I had my big two-day show in the city, and it was the first time some of my newest inventory saw the light of day. The coasters and spike necklaces were crowd pleasers.
However, there was a bit of an issue. As I was setting up on Saturday morning, I wandered through the rooms and noticed there was a lot of jewelry. In fact, a lot of people who did ONLY jewelry, and since this is a juried show I really expected them to have a cap. It seemed like they did last year and the year before, so I don’t know what the deal was. Luckily I was able to bust out my coasters and magnets on the second day to set myself apart, but I’m still frustrated that they had so little variety. Sales were okay, but I feel like I need to be choosier since this is my job. I’m not sure if I’ll do this one again.
But on the bright side (pun very much intended) we did see some awesome Christmas lights after we got home:
Yep, that’s the entire front of somebody’s mansion covered in cascading lights. (And no, we don’t live in the mansion neighborhood. Just drove through it.)
So how was your weekend? Did you have a show? Or see some excellent Christmas lights?
