Return of the Deer Widows . . .

We are in Birch Run, Michigan for Deer Widows’ Weekend.  The show schedule changed this year, so instead of a few hours on Friday evening, we were here from 10 a.m. to 8 p.m.  That’s a looooooong day, and I am tired.  Still, there were sights to be seen . . .


This sight greeted the customers as they came into the show.  I titled it Revenge of Bambi.  Gotta love the crime scene tape.

Even on Friday, our booth was a busy place early in the day.  And we had a new twist – two clear plastic bins filled with paper crafting packs for $1.00 each.  This is the latest product brought to life by Gary’s 96-year-old father-in-law in our back room.


Sue Rothamel was in England doing the British version of QVC, so her Gal Friday, Crystal Copperstone, assumed the big chair in the USArtQuest corner.  I sent Sue an e-mail at the end of the day passing on the customers’ praise of Crystal’s talent – and her response brought the unfortunate news that my application for knighthood had been denied.


Here is one reason why I’m not a fan of long sale hours on a weekday – this was the entire crowd for the giveaway an hour before the show ended . . .


Were you one of those who went home early?  One of these tickets may have been yours – each would have been a winner if the holder of the other half had been present.  Reminder – it never pays to leave a show before it closes.
