A little bit of fun

I love my customers. I really, really do. I meet the greatest people selling my work at Pike Place Market and most days I love being there. But there are days - and those of you who sell your art for a living know what I'm talking about - that make you want to pull your hair out. So, my apologies in advance to all of my wholesale buyers and wonderful customers - I really do appreciate you all so much.
But after a long frustrating Saturday at my booth, I was inspired to to find a creative way to vent. So I made this little film and dedicate it to everyone who sells their work at crafts shows.

Oh my, that was so hilarious! I think you got just about every variation one can hear in front of one's booth at a show or market. Yikes!

From one artist to another there are those days and those shows which really bring out best,,,,,in some folks. Always remember that artists are always suppose to make minimum wage and offer their works at nominal fees because they are not assembly line made. I loved it. Jim in Atlanta

Absolutely perfect! How true it rings. Yes, there are those times, but thankfully, there are those that balance it out to keep us sane(?). Thanks for your creativity.

Hi Pam!
It's your old show booth neighbor. I found this site from another artist friend. Small world. Was just going to read this, but after seeing you fabulous video, I had to comment and tell you how much I appreciate your movie art as well! I think there might be a second (third?) career there as 'instructional vidoes with a sense of humor.' Great to connect with you again.
