Wednesday night, Dragon Cats and Doggie Bags–my small business–had another event. We excelled at the Art of no sales. But it was a lot of fun, I am learning, and my booth looks much better. There were people who came and asked if we were at all the downtown events. Since Art Beat on Main Street is happy to let me display outside their store for a percentage of the sales, it’s affordable. Any percent of zero is free. But every time I go, I learn more about what it will take to sell doggie bags and dragon cat bags. People love their pets and don’t mind spending money. Just need to perfect the message and earn trust by showing up at a few more events. And last Wednesday night was lovely with a band right in front of the stand. So I had three hours of great music, good conversation, and beautiful weather.
Very peaceful and highly deserted sales booth. A different view of peaceful is Bob’s afternoon nap. He’s not feeling well with a mild case of congestion. It’s a nice warm afternoon, perfect for relaxing. And the two dogs are more than willing to keep him company. Mitzi is visiting for a long weekend while Bob’s mom is back east visiting our daughter. She love’s the dog bed.
The last picture today shows off some of my latest art projects. I’be been enjoying the art of macrame, making simple tree’s of life. Simple and satisfying, I can make a nice one in just couple hours. No thinking needed. All I need to do is figure out where to hang them. Perhaps in Charlie’s Shack, the oak tree outside, or in the kitchen. Whatever bugs Bob the most…or at least what I can tease him about…..
