Okay, so about Renegade: In my ragged state just before we left for San Francisco I was cursing myself (and just cursing a lot in general) for ever taking on so much and was convinced it wouldn't be work all the time, money and effort I put into it. But I was completely wrong. Just getting the opportunity to meet so many kind, enthusiastic, talented people made it totally worthwhile. I've been realizing that in the past year or so that I've been doing so much work in my house that I've become really kind of isolated. This sale was such a good reminder to me that I actually do like meeting people and talking to them. As far a selling toys goes I did better than I thought I might and of course that makes the experience even more of a positive one.
One of the best parts about doing the fair was meeting other vendors. I met so many kind supportive people and there was some really beautiful work there too. My only regret was that I didn't have nearly enough time to look around at other peoples work as I was oftentimes at my own booth by myself. I want to show you some of the lovely things I saw but I'll save that for later posts. For now I'm going to put some of my favorites on my blog list so you can visit them yourselves.
As usual, I wouldn't have been able to do any of this if I didn't have such an amazing family. They are just the best. I took very few pictures at the fair. The ones above are from the beginning of the second day (I think I was simply too shaky and nervous to take pictures the first morning). As you can see I have just about the cutest booth helper a lady could ask for. In fact I was notified by the organizers that I won the Cutest Kids Award that weekend. Sure, they probably say that to all the moms...but I'll take it!
