MICETSY at the market...

Well, I am a day late posting this. I guess I was still worn out yesterday after such a full day at the micetsy show. 7am train ride in and 7:23pm ride out (was originally a 5:23pm ride out...they had a slight delay). And we ran into a shopping cart halfway home. While most people were whining & such about the delay...come on people - we hit a shopping cart! It messed with the brakes! You gotta stop for that, especially since it took out the power also...anyway, myself & the guy across the aisle merely shifted in our seats to get the emergency lights to hit our books better. I got a lot read on that trip. Lonely Werewolf Girl - good read.


We set up nice in the cold, but sunny morning.



The sun kept coming out. Those of us on the sunny side soon had to strip down to our lightest layer. While the shady side bundled up even further. 10 feet and what felt like a 20 degree difference. But it didn't stop the traffic. You'd have to check with our fearless leaders chicalookate and beadbug on how the sales went for people, but I can tell you the foot traffic looked good.
I was there to help, but everyone was such a pro that they didn't need much. Which was good for me, I got to socialize more and enjoy all the goodies.
The day ended cloudy but mild. Packing up was so much quicker than setting up. It soon looked like a ghost town.
I want to thank everyone for putting up with me stopping in and pestering you :) I felt like I learned quite a bit and am ready...gulp...to try it myself. Because if I learned nothing else, I learned that there is nothing to be worried about. Just do it! And as Tim Gunn would say, "just make it work!"
U
ntil next year...

  3. Lonely Werewolf Girl by Martin Millar. Teenage werewolf Kalix - hunted in London by family and a guild bent on destroying all werewolves. She is taken in by two humans. Lots of family drama. Other dimension queens enter the picture. It's a mix of modern, troubled teen, friendly, homicidal, and fashionista werewolves mixed in with warriors, punks, cross-dressers & musicians.

    One praise was "imagine Kurt Vonnegut reading Marvel Comics with The Clash thrashing in the background."
