i met the most wonderful people. in particular, one woman, Geri, who came back four times, each time bringing back her friends and family. i befriended her immediately since she is starting a new Charter School in Thousand Oaks and we had a lot to talk about. the picture of her here does her no justice since she is really pretty. she was definitely my biggest fan together with a younger girl (no pic) who also came back twice and bought three items from me, taking my card to spread the word. these were the rewards of the day.
then there was the surprise appearance of my brother who came to give me moral support. he was so funny, luring customers in saying: look, look what my sister made", he was a charmer. he never fails to surprise me with his unconditional love.
setting up at 7:00 a.m after getting there at 6:00 a.m actually seeing the sun rise.
