and I thought art star was bad
Note to the organizers of Renegade: While the idea of having a craft show in a pool sounds really cool, it becomes a bit less practical when it is pouring buckets (and the pool is doing what pools are supposed to do, which is hold water) and you are forced to hold onto your metal tent in the middle of a lightning storm to keep it from blowing away.
Needless to say, all of my displays and jewelry got wet. (Something which is not good for paper or steel.) So, I packed up, called it a show, and headed home. Sorry for anyone who came today looking for me, I just didn't have the energy to return.
Four shows so far this season - rain at every single one. Perhaps this is the universe's way of telling me that outdoor retail shows may not be the ideal strategy for my business. I'm so glad Pile of Craft is indoors.
