What I learned from Pea Ridge.

  1. Some festivals are better organized than others.  It doesn't take long to figure out which is which.
  2. Always get to the site the night before to scan it out.  Find out where bathrooms are, where you go to get morning information.  
  3. Call all who are involved if you don't feel informed until you get the answers you need.
  4. People are going to buy the least likely thing you think they will buy. (I haven't changed my mind about this)
  5. I took paints again to use during the day. I planned an easy drip painting.  That uses few paint colors.  For some weird reason I took almost all of my colors, Why? No idea.
  6. Sunscreen, put it on when you get dressed.  you won't have time later.  
  7. BUG SPRAY !!!! (Never forget bug spray) Amen!
  8. I changed from water to gatorade due to the large amount of sweating I do. Water just isn't enough for me.  I do take some water.
  9. Added wet Chlorox wipes this time.
  10. I'm thinking I might get rid of that heavy folding table and take a corner folding shelf.  Takes up a lot of room in car and tent.  
  11. People will buy cheap frames if they look good (even when I told them it wasn't for sale.) 
  12. Make sure price tickets are easy to read. (someone though my $5.00 was $500  Lol
  13. They buy what they see, few like to hunt.
  14. For some reason I will always get sunburned.  Even when I put on sunscreen.  Can't be under a tree no matter what for some reason.  Maybe one day...
  15. I really enjoyed talking to the people coming through each festival... I felt like I was better at it this time.

I am sooo tired!!!!
