still not social commentary :)

i called about the lemonade fair today, and it costs $50 to rent a 10×10 booth, plus i have to fill out an application and send pictures of my “craft.” if they accept me , i think i’ll do it. it will require some up-front money that i hope i can find.
i also went to a little shop in sauk rapids that sells people’s wares for a cut. i brought in my cards, and she was really pessimistic at first, saying that notecards didn’t sell well, and some lady had cards of munsinger gardens and she wanted $4 for them, blah blah blah. so she looked at my cards, and was surprised that they were a full bleed (why, i don’t know), then balked when i said i wanted to sell them for $2.50 each.
eh?
then she showed me this little card that someone made with their scrapbooking capabilites and stamps, and said that “she’s only selling this for $2 and it’s hand-made!”
um, so, me going out with my camera, using battery power, traipsing around to find a nice thing to take a picture of, tweaking it in photoshop, making it the right format for the printer, then sending it in isn’t as much work as someone folding cardboard, pasting a poodle on the front and writing “happy stupid bday” inside???
ok fine, i don’t want to sell my crap there anyway. she was way too unfriendly for my tastes.
