I am not a big fan of hauling off heavy boxes of pottery anymore,but we did go set up for the once a year, all under the roof, indoor show at the old Luck's Bean cannery here in Seagrove that happened last week.
I had to teach last Thursday, which is set up day for the show, and that meant that Mark had to do a lot of the heavy lifting alone. We streamed lined the booth and had a plan in place before he left. I was able to come home a wee bit earlier and help with the moving of boxes of pots. We decided that this year we would have a plan in place with what pots we were taking and how many boxes to fill.
We took a good showing of tiles along with a good showing of pots, just enough to fill the space and little left as back up. It was the perfect plan for us. We were happy with the sales and didn't have a lot of pots to pack back home.
It seems likewe work all the time so the shop is full for the rest of the year.
Our thoughts are one more load in Ms. B in December, one more load in the electric kiln of tiles and possibly some thrown work as well.
We have a few leads on some possible wholesale that we will follow.
I am just teaching one day a week, that means more time for some creativity here at the studio.
I know we are all waiting to see how the election shakes out for us.
