Scarecrows: Here Today, Gone...Today
I spent my lunch hour at the Harlequin office building along with about 12 other vendors, selling items to employees in an attempt to raise some cash for the United Way.
For the first time, I made little scarecrows to sell. Two of the four now have new homes.
It was an interesting venue. Usually I'm surrounded by other Halloween fiends, but this group - almost all women - were a completely different bunch. The best part was that at my last shows, most people were afraid to actually touch the eye of my eyeball plants. Even the people who bought them and took them home had apprehension. But these ladies? Fingers like missiles, directly aimed for the cornea. I loved it.
As an added bonus, I traded an eyeball plant for a rockin' sock monkey covered in skulls, made by the folks at Ginger Jewelry.
