Granted, it's a Thursday night, and they stuck me on the second floor next to the lingerie dept, but I was pretty disappointed that I didn't sell a SINGLE thing tonight. 4 hrs, and not one thing.
It was a new idea the dept store was trying, to promote the Mid-Autumn festival, and they actually approached me after seeing my booth at a summer fair. No table fee, and 3 days, so I was pretty excited. But the floor traffic was non-existent, I was pretty upset at the end of it. It was hard explaining to my kids why I hadn't sold anything without crying. I don't think I'll go back tomorrow, and I'm going to ask for a table on the main floor for Sat, with the *other* vendors. Sigh.
I'm going to be so relieved when it's over, so I can take all my stuff off of edit mode, my shop looks so bare. And, the bright side is I'm pretty much prepared for my Christmas shows next month, since I've got so much inventory :p
Also, I can go back to getting more than 4 hrs of sleep a night, now.
Sorry, end of self-pity party!
