No rest for the wicked, or something like that
Last spring E suggested that A & I take some of our jewelry into the State Museum store because the manager is always looking for items made by local craftsman. A took what we had in and the manager bought a good chunk of it. This was a bit of a shock because we had also decided to do a craft show in August so we ended up in a huge rush to try to make more stock. This was complicated by the fact that right around that time A broke her wrist and ended up in a cast which made it hard for her to work on things. After that experience we decided that we would work to get a good stock of stuff together so it wouldn't happen again. I should've known better. A stopped by the Museum store yesterday to see if the manager needed to stock back up since we are in the middle of tourist season. After going through about half of what we had and wanting every piece she said she'd take it all. It's a huge sale for us, because I know there were around 30 to 40 bracelets, including the all silver ones which the manager really liked (even suggested A try making some all silver necklaces), plus around 20-30 necklaces and chokers, multiple pairs of earrings and 3 pairs of hairpins. The problem is that now all we have for stock is what we made last night, plus two pairs of earrings I made last week. I'm glad I didn't have any huge plans for the next month.
