Downtown Modesto Event & American Legion Hall

February 23rd I did the Downtown Modesto Event again. My mom came with me which was nice. I didn't have to RUN to the bathroom and she went and got us lunch. Also helped set up and take down and lots of chatting :)

This time I was closer to the other end of the row. There was an empty space next to me so I was able to do a corner set up.

This area is relatively busy all day. There is the movie theater but there is also a conference center right at the end of the street that has various things going on each weekend. This time it was a home and garden show. I sold about the same amount as I had done the last time I was there. I will be going back soon!

This last Sunday I did an event at the American Legion Hall. This was put on by the same gal that does most of the events I sign up for. They had been saying how wonderful this event was, everyone did so well, she had asked me to come do it. 

I got there and was like OMG this place is soooo small. Almost claustrophobic. I had 2 tables that they provided and it was inside so that part was nice but man, so tiny. I could only put the tables like parallel or one against the wall and that way I would have been sitting in front of my stuff.

If I was in my booth I had to get up and walk out so people could see what I had.

The people across from me barely had room for their chairs.

And it was DEAD. I made back my booth fee and like $13 more. (And spent $10 on lunch that Jessica brought me). Some people didn't sell ANYTHING.

I was surprised they didn't have any food available for sale since there was a little kitchen. That was a missed opportunity for sure. Most people selling were there by themselves (no room for an extra person lol) so that makes it difficult to get something to eat. I was lucky that Jess brought me food.

I don't think I'll do this venue again unless it's close to a holiday or something else is going on in the downtown Manteca area.

I don't have anything scheduled for this weekend which is good since I need to work on making some more stuff for my upcoming events :) I like to always have some new stock!

Trevor's Birthday

Well I'm home early today since Trevor had an ear ache. I took him to the doctor and he has an ear infection. The doctor prescribed a 10 day 3 times a day antibiotic. I hate those, why can't they just do the Z pack and get it over with.

Last Thursday Trevor turned 16! I measured him and he is now 6'2" tall. I knew he had to be over 6' now. I wonder how tall he will get. Scott is 6'6" tall. Trevor told him "I'm coming for you" lol.

We decided to try Musashi's for dinner.  It was cool but a bit spendy. The food was good but they were sneaky about adding a tip to the tab without telling us. It said something besides tip and I wasn't sure what it was so I asked. Yep, tip. Which is fine if you are straight forward about it.

My mom and dad brought Tony with them. They are 10 weeks apart, Tony is older.

Melissa was working again so no Melissa :(

Jess and Daniel 

Dad and Mom


I brushed Trevor's hair all out, it's really long. He's talking about cutting it now. I told him he could donate some and still have long hair lol.
