The Friday show so far is much better here in Richmond than the Friday show in Columbia. Betty paid for her booth by 3pm or so meaning we should show a profit rather than just making expenses. Friday is traditionally a slow day because people are working, not spending money. You hear every excuse and reason why things are or are not selling and they are all true and they are all lies.
Many of us blamed Columbia’s poor showing on good weather. We ended the day in Richmond ahead of our whole weekend in Columbia, sad thing is that is not a stunning gain but it does put us in a place where we can breath at least a partial sigh of relief for this show. Possibly the idea that the weather has to be bad enough to keep people from working outside is one of the truths in craft shows..
