Dear me, that sounds awful!

Good on you for being proactive and focused, like someone mentioned, I'd probably just sit down and cry...

Wishing you good luck and that your sales well pay off your loss.  :buttrf:

(you don't mention, so I'm assuming the antiques were not family bond)

What a shame - sounds like something that only happens on tv - hope the fair more than makes up for it    :buttrf:

Thank you so much!

Andy the antiques were ones I had collected originally for me, but I have them with me and if someone wants to buy it they can.  So no real emotional attachment and no family history - thank the heavens.  Today is my last day at the festival and it is expected to be the quietest, but so far this weekend I have sold $750.  I would love to make it a round $1,000 but that's unlikely today.... however we'll see.

This year I didn't have any competition there and I met another soaper who I have heard of.  She is known for making wonderful soap and she also makes a dog shampoo.  She has a chemical sensitivity so only uses EO's.  Apparently she has been given my soap and she said it is one of the few in the area that she really likes....

So that was a nice surprise.

So horrid start but an amazing show so far!

Thanks for being there with me - I so appreciate your support  Grin
