We got set up by 7:15 or so yesterday morning and we were pretty much DONE by 9:30, although I did have a last minute sale of some bars of scented soap! I only made $35.00 the entire time. It was pretty disappointing and people haggled over every purchase! I managed to sell a couple of jackets, some childrens' books, and a large wooden cutout of a horse ($5.00)...sigh...most items went for $0.50 and then they grumbled. I sold two jackets for $2.00 each...The horse was the most expensive items I sold all morning.
By 9:30, it was HOT. And, I mean HOTTTTTTTTT!!! It was 105 here yesterday and by 10:30, I was on the verge of heat exhaustion. I went inside, drank two glasses of water, and passed out on our daughter's couch for an hour. I was D.O.N.E.
Maybe their next one, in March, will be cooler? HOPEFULLY! :-) I did manage to run over to Whole Foods and buy chicken salad and a superfoods salad for lunch and hubby ran over there to buy chicken kabobs for dinner! ;-)
I haven't seen the hawk in our yard, but while talking to a neighbor 2 houses down, he mentioned that he stops in his back yard almost daily. And, he has 3 birdbaths to choose from, not just my homemade one! WELL! Hmmpppffff! He IS in the neighborhood because I heard him yesterday morning and I saw him one morning up on our telephone pole in the back yard. But, by the time I grabbed my camera, he was gone.
