Yesterday Dolly and I had another fun day at the Happy Yess Market. The market is growing into a very friendly atmosphere of hanging and chatting. People spend the day lying around in the grass making new friends. The Happy Yess Moles created a dress up area for young and old alike. Dolly had a fabulous time dressing in a feather boa and thick furry russia type hat in the tropical heat. She also did some hoola hooping with a skilled woman and painting with a environmental activists. My Dolly is a non stop chatterbox and I am so grateful the adults at the market accept her energy, encourage her creativity, play and chat with her.
Profit wise I made $73.50 (after taking out $26 stock, $14 stall and $8 lunch) selling my lovely goodies. Once again nothing to quit my job over but it's just so much fun hunting down gorgeous stuff and having a stall with it. It's like playing shop when your a kid. Anyway... $70 has gone into our Borneo Trip jar (to place into my online high interest account) and $3.50 into my jar for the garden plot. I also sold a 1950's crystal glass necklace for $30 that I purchased in a antique shop 6yrs ago for $30. So I popped that straight into my purse and did not count it in my sales.
