: Hi y'all...I know I've only been around awhile BUT if you can help,
: I've never been more receptive. I'm going to do a gig this weekend,
: the 4th, fri, sat & sun. It's at Shoreline Village here in Long
: Beach, CA. I was calling around, cuz I wanted to know what norml-so
: to speak- booth rentals were. The woman on the phone, Cecilia, said
: 1,000$ a month(gasp) then asked what I was proposing. I said I was
: henna artist and her voice jumped out of business and into
: fascinated. So, she says, please work the 4th of july weekend. I'll
: prorate and it's only 33+change a day. I'll be happy to work with
: after that if you'd like. IM NO PROFESSIONAL, i say in my head. Out
: loud I say Great, I'll be by to talk this week. So we talked and I
: will work this weekend. I am mortified and exhilarated by this.
: I need from you , please, is anything you have to offer...
: I have: a 'booth bitch', umbrella, sandwitch board, flash, business
: cards, after care sheets(cleverly designed with a little dime bag
: stapled to them to hold a lime soaked cotton ball), chairs, two
: batches of extra henna, lots of tips-so I dont have to bother with
: unclogging,lovely draping and a table, a display of henna powder
: limes, and that's it I guess. But I've never done this before. My
: artistic ability I can count on, but dealing with the general
: public...aiyee!!!!....I guess I just wanted some words from
: my 'elders'. I don't know my arse from a hole in the ground right
: now. Haven't slept well since. On a lighter note, Long Beach, where
: live, won't license henna art as a home business. I've been talking
: with my local officials for a few weeks now. Seems that they
: henna under 'Aesthetician' and it can only be practiced out of a
: salon. I want to change this, and believe i can, but if anyone has
: They say the traffic incurred by beautification
: procedures garners too much foot traffic in a residential area. Tho
: tehy do alow other home businesse. The guidelines are: No more than
: two people in and out every half hour and no parking of a
: vehicle with adverts on the outside. Yeah right, I like outcalls
: better anyway(I've got a lovely 4yr.old and a vivacious 3yr.old). I
: assured them I would adhere to the rules I'd read...."but no-one
: might" phooey...I'm gonna fight this. I said I hanna and would also
: like to be a good citizen and pay taxes(hehe) as I was going to
: anyway. She then remindede me she had my name and number and it
: become a police issue if I actually did practice my art in the city
: of LB. Lordy!!!! A seller's permit can allow me to work out of our
: farmers market or other privately produced venues, but i want to be
: official. Anyone had experience with the gov. & henna? Or help with
: this weekend? Sheesh...thnx all who made it to this last
