Happy to report that Sandscaper is now set up at Hidden Treasures in the heart of the city of Lancaster PA. Thank you to Junior, the Manager, for creating an interesting display area out of scrap wood, and blending in with the rustic look of this old converted warehouse space.
Looking forward to being a vendor today at the Point Pleasant NJ Jazz & Blues Festival. We are watching the weather and hoping for “a cooperative day!”
On Thursday June 4 thru Saturday June 6, Sandscaper will be participating as a craft vendor at the Mumford and Sons Gentlemen of the Road Music Festival in Seaside Heights, New Jersey. Looking forward to being a part of the excitement in this oceanside community. Hoping for cooperative weather!!
Well, I was back at the flea market today and the weather was beautiful. The crowds were good too. For those of you who purchased a sandscape zen garden from me, I want to say thanks again. For those who had compliments and kind words, thanks to you as well.
I continue to enjoy watching the reaction of the people to the zen gardens. There was the woman today who stopped to look, stared for a few moments, and then looked at me and said “I give up, what is it!?” When I told her it was a zen garden and some people like them for stress reduction and relaxation, her response was “wine does the same thing!” It’s a coincidence that a short time later, a gentlemen referred to his stress reduction/relaxation as “a bottle of Jack and a cigarette.” I chose not to respond to him, remembering that I am, in fact, a retired drug and alcohol counselor.
I also loved the elderly couple (ok, I’m retired and elderly, but that’s besides the point) who stopped for a moment, stared at the little zen gardens, and the woman turns to the man and says “George, I can’t believe what people sell.” Once again, no comment from me!
