J said we didn't need to open yesterday but I did anyway 'cause one of the artists was going to bring back some art and a loaner baby swing. I didn't think it would be a good day but when J got there in the afternoon I told her she missed the morning rush. She scoffed and I said, "I MEAN the morning rush." A group of (I think) Korean women came in and bought some things. Since I was by myself I felt a little overwhelmed. I'm not the sharpest pencil in the drawer when it comes to cash registers and credit card machines. Somehow I got through it all but would have loved to have had someone else there. They even had to take a picture of me with them! J couldn't believe it when I told her how much they spent. Just goes to show you never know.
I know J is disheartened about the little attendance we get. Hopefully taking a few days off to be with family will lighten her spirits. Don't know what I'll do if the gallery does close. I think we should give it more time. The arts tour is coming up this weekend and we'll see how many people we get going through. If the committee did its job with publicity.
Y'all have a good start to the week and be yourself....everyone else is taken.
