Our craft show this past weekend was awesome and amazing. As usual, the customer turn-out on Friday evening was tremendous and the crowd was incredibly enthusiastic. The most exciting part for me was that channel 11 (the local NBC affiliate) did a live-shot at the show on Friday evening. I was interviewed by a 6' tall, thin, blond 25 year old, which was extremely nerve wracking. You have to understand that I'm only 5' tall and a bit frumpy at 53. Needless to say, I felt, well, short. Let's just say it was an interesting contrast!
Here's a look at my booth. I can never get the camera settings right for these banquet room shots. The lighting is so difficult to work with, but this photo will give you an idea of how I set up my booth.
I've always preferred a booth that allows customers to enter rather than simply walk up to. I find it more inviting. Carol & I share a small table for check out purposes (seen on the lower right side of the photo).
Early Saturday morning -- like 4 am -- Rick & I were wakened by a little earthquake. It was centered very close to Anchorage, but we certainly felt it on the 7th floor of the Westmark Hotel! It was like a wave flowing across the room. A bit unnerving to say the least.
