we are back in the '603!

We always get on the road later than planned, so why would this trip be any different? We left Seagrove around 5:30 on Wednesday, drove to as far as somewhere in PA and slept for a few hours. Around 5:30 pm we arrived at Mt. Sunapee Resort in NH. The great thing about this show is that they give you quite a bit of time to set up. We unloaded the trailer and got the walls of the booth up by 8:30 pm. We could have stayed all night to set up if we wanted to, but we were exhausted, and needed to check in with the folks we are staying with (more on that in another post).



This is about as far as we got on Thursday night...
We worked from 9:30 until 4:00 today, leveling the walls (the joys of an outdoor show), and touching up paint that got nicked up during the trip. At 4:00 we needed to quit and get ready for the annual Living with Craft Exhibition Awards. I somehow was asked to present the NH Potters Guild best in Ceramics Awards... which meant having to clean up and look presentable for a swanky wine and cheese affair.
The gates open at 10:00 in the morning... the first of NINE days, smiling and selling pots... we plan to be there at 8:00 am to finish getting those pots on the shelf... and right now, I am enjoying a glass of wine, and the fact that the room is cool with only a fan running. I wish we could spend the month of August in NH, and the rest of the year in beautiful North Carolina.

  1. I can't even imagine a nine day show, that trailer makes it nice to keep your setup and pottery in. Good luck at the show.
