I seem to thrive under pressure. Or else I must be a glutton for punishment.
Last week I was invited to apply for the One of a Kind Show and Sale in Toronto.
I have been approached several times by the recruiters to apply and I finally asked myself what was holding me back.
My answer wan't a very good one.
So now, with only a paltry three weeks to get my ducks in a row, I am scrambling and ordering supplies like a madwoman. I have enlisted friends and family to help bottle with the promise of drinks, food and fun times. (As if packaging and labelling 700 bottles wouldn't be a good enough reason to visit me!)
I can say that I am scared - the investment in the space alone was almost $1,000 and I can't even tell you the cost to make my product. Let's just say that if I don't do well, you might find me in line at the nearest soup kichen.
There are so many things I have to do! I feel like panic is setting in and a 'What have I gotten myself into?!' type of stomach turning excitement.
But I tell myself...... I will pull it off - I always do. And with panache.
So this March 28th - April 2nd you can find my at the One of a Kind in the Marketplace section. Look carefully, we only get a four foot table spot!
