Much renewed faith!

Well, it's almost done. I still have tags and till tapes to reconcile and cheques to deposit, which really is hardest part. Thank goodness for my little elf, Heather!

After all my complaining and advertising nightmares, the actual sale went off with out a hitch.
A huge round of applause to the crafters for the BEAUTIFUL crafts this year! I heard so many good reviews. I pride myself in taking only quality crafts. I'm a bit picky, but it paid off yet again. I was worried that with only 12 crafters, there might be a few problems. But it was just fine. I may be talked into doing it again. I really do enjoy the actual setting up and the sale.

It seems people really were waiting for the sale this year. So many people say that and with the hectic schedule of November, it's easy to forget, and Grey Cup, that doesn't always make for a busy craft sale day, but it was this year and for whatever reason, I am grateful.

If you missed it, you missed what many people said was the BEST sale ever. And I'm not just saying that. You missed the best selection at a craft sale, too. Although, by noon, we were sold out of so many items. It was sad to look up from the cash register and see empty trees, people did ask a few times if there was stock hidden under tables. I wish.

Unfortunately, I have no way of knowing how many people came through this year, the counter had a few technical difficulties. But I feel attendance was up from last year, even though AMC was down. The sales were phenomenal! Thank you Cheryl, Yolanda, Gina, Sue, Sharon, Fern, Holly, Greg and so many others for stopping in.

Just in case you were wondering, I sold more cards than I thought I would and even some old woodcrafts. I didn't buy a single thing for myself this year. Not because I didn't want anything but because I left it too long and the items sold!

Keep your eyes and ears open, there may be something else in the works.

AND the winner of my newletter draw is Mylene K!
Sorry Audrey!

Yes, Kelli, I think there is a Santa Claus!

I am very happy that you walked away from this show with the renewed faith, excitement and possibly anticipation?
It was the most FABULOUS show ever! I am very fortunate (in more ways than one) to be a part of it with you! Next year is gonna rock baby!

I know that the public truly admires this particular show like no other.

Just remember, you can always count on me!
