Up before the sun

With butterflies.  Not sure why I'm nervous - I've been selling in my OWN shop for almost 4 years now - but this show today has me really antsy.  Soooo want to be successful. But it's the great unknown of profit that is doing it to me  -especially since the weather is, of course, not going to cooperate.  I will be under cover of the park pavilion, so my jewelry, my displays and myself should be just fine.  But shoppers don't come out in the rain.   Especially when parking is at a premium, and a lot of walking is expected.     So instead of getting a good night sleep, I've been up and down, and tossing and turning and finally up for good before 5 am.  And it doesn't look good out there.  I hope I can at least get my velvet covered display and rolling cart from the house to the car and car to the pavilion without getting soaked. 
Ok, Universe - are you listening?   I WILL HAVE A GOOD DAY OF HAPPY CUSTOMERS AND LOTS OF SALES WITH LITTLE RAIN AND WIND.  And so it is.

Wellll...lots of rain, thunder lightning and wind. Few customers. A little frustrated.
Better luck next time, I suppose.

Hope you ended up having a good day! The sun has to come out sometime! Right!

Truthfully, Robbie, I ended up selling just one thing - to my mother - 15 minutes before the show ended - just because she felt sorry for me, probably. Wasn't a good show - and I have committed and paid for 3 more of them in the same venue.
Live and learn.....
