the clocks went back last night and i'm so grateful for the extra hour this morning. it's almost liesurely. slept well last night (the previous 2 nights were sleepless). day 2 at the fair saw bigger crowds but fewer sales - alot more browsing and chatting. i'm pleased that the pillows are selling. and bowls. lots of wooden ornaments. things are going well. don't know what the turnout will be today - newfoundland is getting the tail end of hurricane noel - on the west coast winds up to 145 mph - in corner brook gusts of 100 mph, so people won't be driving here from out of town. today the fair closes at 4:00. packup and take down. monday to reorganize then tues i'll drive into st. john's (an 8 hour drive) and set up there on wed. for the st. john's fine craft and design fair. it again is a juried fair run by the newfoundland and labrador craft council. they have about 90 booths. it runs from thurs. nov. 8th - sun. nov. 11th.
