Packed for the Show
Have you ever worked so hard and so long where one moment you just can't stand it anymore and you feel like you are going to lose your mind, explode and run out the door screaming?
You got it. That is where I am, but all that is left is to pack the car early in the morning, drive to the show, set up, and hopefully enjoy the weekend. There is a rumor of snow on Sunday, which could make things difficult and slow both sales wise and driving, but I have experienced many storms the first weekend of December, the date of this show that I have done for years.
I am bringing higher end art this time, along with fabulous Victorian papers, and my cards and ornaments, as well as a few of my vintage Japanese cardboard houses and those little elves. I bought a large lot of them to sell and use for display, but sadly they did not arrive in time. The USPS isn't too fast these days and I tell you, mail early. Five days and no package from Ohio.
It has been a rough few days, especially having close friends staying with you, whose brother is dying and you want to listen,console, and grieve with them.
I am off to find some brandy or other apertif, and heading to bed to read for a bit. My back hurts, my eyes are blurry, and my mind is overwhelmed with images and some sadness.
Till tomorrow's report. Patti
