In addition to wet grass, another byproduct of the downpour was swarms of gnats. Fortunately someone had bug repellent and we were able to stave them off... the bugs let up as the day wore on... or maybe I just got used to them. It drizzled off and on all morning and the sun peeked out a couple of times.
The crowd was sparse but we were kept busy enough until about 2pm when one of the potters got a phone call warning of a big downpour heading our way. We scurried about packing as fast as we could but the rain caught us in the middle of the frantic packing. We got soaked!
Yet, we all agreed that we had a really nice time despite the rain and the lackluster sales. We got to visit and catch up with each other, talk pots and generally enjoy each other's company. This is what I love about being a potter: the camaraderie and generosity of other potters, their willingness to help and share, and the fact that nobody melts in the rain!
Oh! And the show? Well, as I said the crowd was sparse and the economy being what it is sales weren't what they could have been. I, however, did comparatively well. Because of the weak economy, I had made several inexpensive mugs and brie bakers... and that's what sold!
