Wouldn't you know!

Today I was able to put up a table at a "meet and greet" at the building my day job is at. A co-worker and I advertised the organization while also selling our wares. There was not a lot of people, but I did sell some things.

In my last post, I mentioned that the Jasper Bookmark is probably my favorite, and I wouldn't mind if I never sell it.....Well, guess what! I sold it!

I could be sad, but I sold it to a 10 year old boy who probably picked it up and looked at it 10 times during the day. It was the very first thing he picked up when he walked over to our table. And he kept on coming back.

I have to say that I really like it when parents watch their kids and know what they like. His mother could have said no, but she wants him to read and if this bookmark will get him thinking more about reading, that is good.

So my "inspiration" piece is now gone!

Oh that's actually sweet...
I have a saying

DO NOT FALL IN LOVE WITH THE INVENTORY....

I have to use that on myself all the time! ;0)

Your inspiration piece is now inspiring a young man to broaden his horizons beyond imagination. He may end up in Harvard because your bookmark will inspire him to read another book.

Not bad for a day's work, don't ya think? ;-D

Awwe, it is sad to see the items we get so attached to leave; however, it's also a happy moment too. Bitter sweet I suppose. ;)

That might have to be my new theme song. Do not fall in love with the inventory, the inventory, the in-ven-tor-yyy.

Oops!! Too much Wiggles and Imagination Station.

Harvard would be nice for this kid. He is actually a pretty good bargainer. We decided he would be a good auctioneer. That's also because this kid could talk a mile a minute. And I was looking forward to a few hours without MY mile a minute kid. But it was fun!

Well CB, he was pretty happy when he put it in his Pokemon paperback book, so it was a very sweet moment!!
