Up and out early to Hatton Countryworld. The new improved layout for the stand looked great - thanks Ted for getting those shelves done so quickly - and Sue and I were optimistic about the day ahead. Lots of visitors, lots of interest but not many people ready to spend. We even had our secret weapon ready, an enticing display just at the right height for those little girls to spy gorgeous jewellery made especially for them. I had to deploy my best sales techniques to ensnare them and persuade them to part with Mummy or Daddy's cash! Lets hope the fairs leading up to Christmas can get everybody parting with their cash.
I'm married, one son, two stepsons, a grandson, one crazy German Pointer and two cats (all male). I love making jewellery, especially knitted and crocheted wire necklaces and bracelets.Before having my son I ran my own publishers' representative service, selling English books into Europe. It was really hard work but great fun and I got to see a lot of Europe and North America. These days I am happiest when I am close to home.
