...wish her well on her next try.

Artie set up at a craft show on Sunday.It was the Jazz and Blues Festival here in Saratoga. There was good music and a steady stream of "Oh, how cool is that!" customers.
Art has been making bottle cap jewelry for a while. It's very fun stuff and the burning desire for extra cash is motivating her to get booth space in some small local shows.
Except for the wind,(we were weighted down very well and I was a bit concerned about the 10 or so other newbie tents that weren't) it was a beautiful afternoon to sit outside and sell one's wares.I think that the use of the Saratoga water bottles was a neat idea for displaying her bracelets and necklaces.She didn't make the gobs of money at this show that she wanted but she covered her expenses and proved to herself that she can get out there with her jewelry and face the public. Let's all think good Artie thoughts and wish her well on her next try.

Hey, I think for a first try, covering her expenses can be counted as a solid success! Good luck on turning a profit next time around, Artie.

Oh they are very cool, and I think the blue bottles are ever so clever! I can't wait to see them in real life.
Good luck at.. when is the next show?
