But then again, this was our first time doing the first Art Walk in May. There was also a baseball game the same night so we think there were a lot of people there and not walking the blocks. This is also the first year it has started at 5:30 instead of 6pm.
EJ took a late nap so we didn’t get there until 5:20 to set up. Luckily hubby arrived about 2 minutes after me. Niki, from Thistle and Bees, was also there by 4:30 with her mom to stake out our usual claim. Apparently her mom had to inform another participant that she was encroaching… 😛 Which, to me, was a good sign that we had such a great vendor turn out we would have a great customer turn out. But it was definitely slow to start.
My first two sales were back to back at 6:20pm for a pair of headbands (1 shell-stitch, 1 double-stranded) + another double-stranded headband.
We ended up staying the whole time, leaving by 9:15pm instead of 8/:30 like I was originally planning in order to get EJ home for a late bedtime. Poor girl was finally in bed by 9:45pm (instead of 8pm).
