That time of year again
I have decided, at the very last minute, to skip the Anne McClymont craft sale this year, which is tomorrow, SATURDAY, NOVEMBER 4th. I have also decided not to join Heather in Kamloops, which is Sunday, Nov. 5th.
This is the first time in about 10 years that I won't be a vendor at AMC. I can't say I miss it as of right now. I did notice that on Halloween, I didn't have to stop painting to answer the door, and that was probably a first in many years.
I've decided that my little SU business makes money all year where as my woodcrafts make money in November. I work all year at cutting, painting, sanding, etc. and then have to store all the goods until the sales. So now I can work all year, cutting, scoring, stamping, etc. and not need tonnes of space, no wood cluttering my carport, no sawdust all over the place, and gone is the stress of November!
I am still doing the Benvoulin Sale on November 19th. I won't have much for wood, just leftovers, but I will have a small assortment of cards.
Sadly, I have also noticed that less people are crafting, hence the low number of crafters I have for my sale.
