Heads Up

I did another craft fair this past Sunday. It was better attended than the last one I did.

I got to sit outside. This would have been nicer if it hadn't been chilly. However, since it rained Saturday, it could have been so much worse. So, all in all a nice day.

Here's my table...

Yes, I was behind a post. This didn't stop people from taking a look, though. And the view I had all day looked like...

my view

I love the color of that tree.  

Anyway, you can't tell from the picture, but there was a playground behind me. Towards dusk, the place got really packed. Some kids started throwing balls around.  

I think you know where this is going...  

The person who put the whole thing together came by around dusk. She took pictures of us participants in our booths. Just as she snapped the picture of me, I got hit in the back of the head by a flying ball.  


At least the kid didn't have a very good arm. That is, I didn't get hit very hard. It was still kind of scary.  

The booth next to mine sold fused glass. They were more panicked by the incoming throws. Yeah, that could have been disastrous. Luckily, none of their wares got hit. (The ball came our direction only three times. I guess they got better control after that.)  

I'm thinking of expanding my wares. Would anyone be interested in hand knitted coffee sleeves? You know, like the cardboard ones that coffee shops slide over the cups so as to not burn hands. Or is that too silly?  


  1. Poor head!

    Your table looks great. You never know what people will like. Give coffee cozies a try.

  2. That would depend on what the coffee sleeves looked like.

  3. I'm glad you didn't get hurt. I think the coffee sleeves might be a good idea as long as they don't slip off the cup. If you had one of those metal coffee containers and it was cold out, it would be great.

  4. What fun, not the flying balls, but the craft fair. Knitted coffee sleeves? I'm sure there would be a clientele for that. I rarely buy to go coffee, but I can see how people who bought it regularly might go for that. And it would be a cute gift item.
