|The Little Bookstore of Big Stone Gap, VA|
So I got to go out of town yesterday, and proved it's a small world. One of the women who bought one of my mugs comes here to Black Mountain frequently, and knows a couple of potters that are friends of mine, and who make beautiful works...so I was very grateful that she liked my work also.
Here are some of the photos that spread out my day. Meeting the owners of The Tales of the Lonesome Pine Bookstore, as well as a lot of their friends and customers, as well as the chef who prepares fabulous food for the Second Story Cafe...it was all wonderful fun.
And did I sell pottery? More than I expected!
That's the advantage of having so much to look forward to, besides sales, that they indeed become just a secondary aspect of everything that's happening.
|My books for the day, and some pottery which didn't all come home with me.|
|Pause here, because this lovely lady hiding in the mystery book room is waiting to be adopted.|
|But 18 year old Nicki is the shop-cat!|
|I hope someone enjoys candlelit baths!|
|The wall of fame, thanks to Wendy's book|
|Erin and I had some good talks|
|Helen found a niche where she could read and not be bothered about pottery sales|
And I came home to find I'd missed photofraphing several important members of their community...so I'll have to go back again and make sure to include Jack, Wendy's husband, and Hollie who creates fantastic food for the Second Story Cafe.
