Bracelets, shows and Farmer's Market

American Made Brass from B'sue, sanded for highlights, riveted.

Same bracelet, different view
Whee!!!!! MacNider Art show yesterday went really great! Not the least of it --- we had nice weather.  Grant you, it started to rain around 445pm ( the show was over at 5pm) but up until 4pm .. it wasn't too cold, the wind was almost non-existent... This is the first show of this year we were able to do a complete and full set up, using all of my displays, for the the entire show!! ( In Omaha the weekend before, we changed the display 5 different times to accommodate the change in wind / rain/ or temperature.. )

Another lovely bit about MacNider is just how darn nice everyone was, from the folks who run the show and to the customers who shopped there. 

So we had a great time!

Something Jerry and I are both noticing... we must be getting old.

It use to be we could do a show, drive home and stay up til 1am.

Now we get home from a show like this, and we are in bed within 2 hours.  I kid you not.  Jerry was in bed before I got home doing the weekly store run, and I was in bed approximately 20 minutes after that.  That means we were both in bed no later than 10pm.  Course we got up that morning at 4am, were on the road by 5am, got to Mason City around 710am, set up for the show that started at 9am, packed up at 5pm, headed back home by 545pm.  Got home just before 8pm.  I left the house to go to the store around 810pm, got home around 930pm, and in bed by 10pm.

OK, maybe we have the right to be  tired! lol

This is one of the reasons I adore doing DownTown Des Moines Farmer's Market! We still have to get up really early (usually 430ish) but the drive is only 10 minutes, and we are home by 1pm usually.  It leaves us most of the weekend to do other things.

So I hope I'll see everyone This Coming Saturday ( June 15th) at Farmer's Market.  We should be on the north side of 2nd street.  You don't have to get up at 430 though.... It's open 7am-12pm.
