At 3:00 p.m., maybe a total of five people had come by since the start, and at this point mom and I were talking ourselves silly, reading and crocheting, and desperately trying to chat with anyone who came by the market (btw I am reading this out loud to her and we both can't stop laughing).
At 5:00 p.m. someone bought my new mermaid doormat and another person bought this vintage metal fish candleholder - hurray we made enough to cover the cost of our booth!
**Note, None of the other vendors were selling either so I didn't feel so bad. In another hour, around six, we packed up our twenty or so bins and wall-hangings and hit the road.
One of the most important things I have learned since starting Shorely Chic is that any and all experiences are beneficial to your emotional and personal growth. Although at the time, like yesterday when I barely broke even after putting myself out there and all that hardwork, it may feel like a let down, you just never know what could come of it. I met two really sweet girls who I will certainly be in contact with and found out about an auction house I never heard of.
I am happy I tried, I may even go back one day, and I am thankful to have such a supportive and loving mother to share these trials and tribulations with.
The packing begins!
