One two-day, two-household garage sale, and one 5-hour, poorly advertised craft fair later, I've put money into savings for home repairs and improvements and have even been paid in full to make a second rag-edge recycled jeans baby quilt for a woman with two baby grand-daughters. I had most of the supplies on hand, so I came home, took a power nap, and started cutting and stitching right away. Here's what I accomplished last night - even in my rather burned out state.
So all of this has been going on as I prepare to sell my home. Had an inspection done, painters are prepping to paint the outside - though the job goes slower when they can only work in the warmer part of the day. And I have three other weather dependent jobs to complete in short order. I continue to have respiratory troubles, so I commisssioned my sons to do my garden tear out and final yard clean up.
So call me crazy, but I'm considering doing another one-day craft fair in a couple weeks. Being a Holiday Craft Fair, I'm debating if I can still sell non-fall/winter items? This fair runs 7 hours instead of 5, and is VERY well advertized. I'm told the fee is only $60.00. I've e-mailed the man in charge, to determine if there's still room for another vendor and what one gets for $60.00. Though I'm tired, I could use the greenbacks for home repairs and improvements, and I SURE would like to make some boxes dissappear! :)
