We’re always rather, rather nervous when it comes to being at markets. We cut and sew (then re-cut and re-sew) things, plan and re-plan the inventory that we would bring with us, draw and cut dozens and dozens of our name cards, then spend hours laying out our rehearsal stall space at home (“Let’s put a chair on the table.” “Okay, that didn’t work. Take it down.” “Wait, put it back again.”). But really, the thing we worry about the most, way more than if we would tumble down the stairs with our numerous IKEA boxes, is that no one would come to our stall.
But, THANK YOU ALL FOR COMING. Thank you for stopping by our stall, browsing our offerings, asking us questions, saying hi, signing up for our mailing list, buying things (we hope you enjoy your purchases; for people who bought maps, we hope you and/or your lucky friends have a fantastic trip! We envious.), disregarding our awkwardness, saying that you enjoy reading this blog (we are always very, very happy to hear this and should probably think of a more appropriate response besides “Cool! Thanks!”), taking our name cards, asking about Sarah’s felt brooch (she bought it in Tottori; it is part of a set), bringing us tummy sustenance, stabbing your friends with our lightning bolts, and for being very patient with us as we fumbled around with packing and bad math skills.
Also, a very big thank you to Ru-chan for being the unofficial official mascot and helping out!
