Garfield Shindig 2015 and Kitchen Update

I've got a booth at a local craft fair this weekend. It's their first year trying this out. Today half the vendors didn't show up and that made it hard to draw in buyers who drove past. However, I still sold three books. I'm pretty happy with that. Tomorrow will be better since the rest of the vendors "should" be there. We'll see. Saturday's are better anyway.

You can see hubby's cabinet doors that have been turned into chalkboards and coat hangers. My daughter is also selling those rubber band bracelets. She sold 12 of them!

And, in spite of all the subbing, there is a little work going on at the house. Remember the first day? Pre-demo?

Well, here's what it currently looks like...

I now have countertops! We just bought some cheap laminate until the other house sells, but it's nice to have space to work. I can prepare the meal here, then carry it through the laundry room to my mom's side to cook it. Together we have a complete working kitchen. :)

Everything is at a stand still now until we sell the house. Hopefully I can post a picture of a completed kitchen before Thanksgiving. *fingers crossed*


  1. Fingers, knees, ankles and everything else is crossed for you, Charity. I hope the craft was more successful today. All the best.

  2. Hope the other house sells! Still have two months before Thanksgiving. Plenty of time.
    Rude that half the vendors didn't show.

  3. I love doing craft fairs. I mostly have my jewelry and knitting, but I always make a spot for my book and usually sell one or two. I hope Saturday went much better.

  4. Craft fairs are fun. Fingers crossed that you other house sells soon.

  5. I can't wait to see how gorgeous your home looks in a couple months.

  6. I'm thinking about doing a crafts fair at a school next May...right before my next book comes out. I can sell all these leftover books I have and hang a big banner with my new book. Someone told me that when you do that, a bunch of people walk up, assuming you work for a bookstore. They don't get that you're the author!
