The Polish American Community of Toledo Festival was last weekend. Always a crap shoot when they're held this early in the year. It's one of the smaller ones but they have treated us well for joining them in trying to re-establish the big party that was discontinued a few years ago. And they're some pretty good folks.
Friday nite and Saturday were totally awesome, but Sunday afternoon saw the skies open up hard and often ending things about 2:30 pm.
Anyway we sold 99 items off the racks and got 14 custom orders. Came home to 3 Etsy orders and had 4 more items sell off the Made in Michigan display. So I've been designing and starting to cut the custom orders while trying to sort and reorganize the inventory and dry everything out. Didn't make a whole lot of $$ but came out ahead after expenses. I kinda like being the big fish in a small pond.
They really liked the 38" sign I made for them. It got hung on the stage behind the bands. Then it goes to their HQ.
Got a couple months til the second biggest Polish Party in the Detroit area. Gotta do a bunch of cutting and hopefully get a few orders from the other venues in the mean time. A little here and a little there.

I took the tests and retirement is the best job I'm suited for.
Now I know why old guys wear suspenders.
