I’m trying to get myself out of the dark mood I’ve been in over the last few days. I was trying not to admit to myself what a total bust my show was! I put hundreds of dollars and hours into this and now I’m stuck with tons of stock as well as brochures and promo material. Maybe worst of all, my natural nails and cuticles are totally trashed from all the filing and polish remover I’ve been handling.
I’m sure as @#$! not doing any more exhibitions for awhile. My guy suggested running over all the leftover stock with our motorcycles and enjoying the crunchy sound. That would be satisfying, but with the way things are going, we’d probably skid on some rhinestones, crash the bikes, and break major bones, then find out there’s an exclusion on our insurance that denies claims that have anything to do with shiny objects.
I know I’ll feel better in time, and some stuff has been selling online, but nowhere near where I had hoped to be, plus posting it online costs time and money as well. Since I basically wasted my entire autumn preparing for this black hole of suck, the last thing I want to do is spend MORE time on it. But I do want to offer a giant thanks to everyone who stopped by my booth and my online store- thank you so much! It really means a lot, especially now.
