Her shop is in Lynchburg, TN, which is where the famous Jack Daniel’s distillery is located – people come from all over the world to tiny Lynchburg (population: 400!) to tour the distillery. In October there is a huge BBQ cook-off (over 25,000 in attendance!) and she said I can setup a craft booth outside her shop. Hopefully the weather will be nice that weekend and people will be ready to SHOP! Her location is great because it is right beside the park where all the BBQers set up. Now I need to get busy making sure my booth looks great and that I have plenty of stock to sell!
I hope this opportunity leads somewhere... Yesterday when I went by her shop I brought plenty of business cards so hopefully I will get some business from that as well. Well, just thought I would share my exciting news – hope everyone has a great weekend!
Wow that sounds great!
Congratulations! Are you using Altoid tins for the tooth fairy boxes? I've wanted to make them, but I don't know anyone who uses altoids to save the tins for me. I'm excited for you!
I am knee-deep in boxing things up for my show tomorrow. I'm prepared to be bored with laptop and entertainment ready....by keeping my expectations low maybe I will be pleasantly surprised! LOL
