oh, oh, OH!   7 comments

I am so excited and nervous, too.

There is a holiday pop-up store in town which sells locally made products and crafty things.

I went in yesterday, and saw they had a wide variety of things, but nothing like what I make.  I spoke to the woman running it, told her what I made.  She was nice, but said they really don’t need more jewelry, but to drop off my card.

I went in today with  all I have made – two hats and 8 necklaces. And my card, of course.

She said, when I showed her, “You are right, I have never seen anything like this before.”  She asked me about my yarn, then agreed to take the lot. She said that the quality of my work, yarn, beads and buttons far exceeds most of what people bring in.  She loved the button hats, and adored the necklaces.  We got them tagged and up and now we will wait and see what happens.  I am glad to have them in there for today, which was already looking like a busy shopping day.

The store will stay open through the 2nd, and she said she has the option to stay open until the 11th – so it is a small window, but we will see what happens.  And now she has my card, so if she pops up anywhere else, she will know about me.  I had no idea the shop was popping up, but she has been there a couple of weeks, apparently.

Very hard not to drop everything else I am knitting and make more necklaces and hats!
