With a delightfully clear forecast for Saturday, and my crew available to help set up and tear down the booth, I can confidently say: I’m planning to be at market this week.
And in response to comments and suggestions from customers – these three new pieces will be on display:
The input I get from people visiting my booth is an incredibly valuable resource – and often exactly the gentle nudge I need to act on an idea, or work through a plan that hasn’t yet made it to the top of my ‘to do’ list.
When someone asks about what they don’t see – “Do you have this is in black?” or “Can you make one without fringe?” or “Are there any of these with more than one color?” – I can answer with a simple “no” – or, I can consider the possibility – take the opportunity to hear more about they have in mind – expand my plan – and include their ideas in what I choose to work on.
It can’t always be ‘next’ – and it may be beyond the scope of my personal syllabus. But when a comment or question lines up with something I’ve been wondering about, or thinking about, or trying to decide whether or not to ‘do’ – that’s when thoughts turn into things.
So a great big thank-you to those of you who take the time to share your ideas!
I hope to see you this week.
