Sadly, I was sick all of last weekend and couldn’t talk or interact with people as much as I would have liked to when they were in my booth. After one minute of talking to someone I would start incessantly coughing and then have to leave the booth for water or my head was pounding so badly that I could barely manage a smile. I barely shook people’s hands and this really affected my overall sales. I made out OK, but in hindsight, being only 50% healthy at a very large and public sale is not a good thing.
I’m normally quite chatty and will always shake a person’s hand and offer a smile in public. Really. I got sick on the wrong weekend.
A big thank you to both my Mom and Dad who helped me out this weekend. Without them both I wouldn’t have been able to make it through.
And as I am feeling better and healthy now I’m hosting a 25% OFF sale.
UPDATE – the sale in now over. Just enter coupon code BLACKFRIDAY at checkout and you’ll get 25% off of your order from HandmadeCloud or my Etsy shop. Why do stores wait to have sales until after Christmas? Before the Season is when it counts, in my eyes. Happy Holidays!
