over a month ago I participated in the Grand Cities Artfest—my first ever outdoor show. I learned a lot about dealing with the weather. It was hot, 95+ and humid. We had wind. Not just a nice breeze, but a hold-on-to-your-tent-poles-wind. And we had rain, when it came time to tear down our booth. Jason was wonderful company, my banker, and a great help with set-up and tear down. We met a lot of new people, reconnected with friends and family still in the Grand Forks area and ate cotton candy (how could you not with the stand right next door).
