Tiny Canary was a big success! I had a wonderful time that weekend, meeting so many great people. I was sort of back in a niche that some customers didn't seem to notice on Saturday, along with Mushka Rushka, Bootleg, and Girl Pie. But despite that, my sales were really good that day. On Sunday, Anne and Aline, the lovely ladies who organized the event, had made a huge sign pointing everyone in our direction. Sunday was a chilly, gray day, and it started out a bit slow. I think most people were going the "let's have a leisurely brunch, then shop for handmade goodies" route (which I can't really blame...had I not been vending, I too would have gone for pancakes first), but once they arrived, the place was hopping. Anne and Aline did such a wonderful job with the show! I really commend them for their hard work, and I'm glad that I got to be a part of it.
It took me a couple of days to feel that I'd caught up on sleep. I sold so many scarves, that I had to immediately start dying and batiking more scarves for this coming weekend at the Cleveland Bazaar Bizarre.
Oh, and I baked pie for Thanksgiving. Now, I've been baking since I was nine years old. (I was a 4-H kid...ah, the good old days of sewing and baking bread, getting ready for the county fair.) I've baked breads, cakes, cookies, crisps, buckles, tortes, cobblers...all sorts of things. But I'd never made a pie before. Why? Well, I don't really know why. I've now remedied that by baking a lovely pie, chock full of pumpkinny goodness...of which I now realize I only got one piece. I was given a lot of leftovers by my parents, but no pie. (Geez, I'm going to have to make another pie.)
