Spring Time in the Pines Quilt Show

Hello Everyone,

 
We did it!  Our booth is all set up and ready for visitors.
 

This is how we looked at 12:30pm Friday.  By 3pm we were set and ready to go.


First, all of the quilt stands and quilts go up.


That takes us the most time.  They only toppled over once.


We have our routine down.  I place the product and Gail (Ethel) gets the patterns placed in the rounder.  She also tags all the quilts with their name tags.


I love my lanterns.


My booth is so cozy, customers don't want to leave.








I love seeing all of my quilts together in one place.  I didn't bring the new quilts for Spring Market......just in case.  If I lost them now, I would turn into a pile of putty on the floor!

 



Our next challenge is working the new cash register.  Lucy and Ethel aren't the sharpest tacks in the box when it comes to the register.  We just had another crash course with the manual.  All went well so maybe, just maybe we'll balance at the end of the day.  (Ethel is a former accountant so it had better balance to the penny!)

Soon,
Lynn

  1. I would be one of those folks who wouldn't leave. You'd have to just give me a job, I guess. Lovely booth, and I hope you have a productive event - balanced out and everything!

  5. Looks to me like Lucy and Ethel have a system..,and hopefully it involves lots of cookies for Ethel so she doesn't have to dip her fingers in that new till! I wouldn't ge surprised if you go home with empty cars...your booth will be mobbed with shoppers filling their bags!
    Cheers!
