: Merc rets are like shooting a cue ball with a lot of English. They
: go, but all the action is on the sidespin! Never what you expect!

Well that's this last 2 weeks in a nutshell! And I got mobbed by 9
Indian ladies on saturday at my shop who all haggled me at once for
jewelry! I think I broke even!! LOL Not used to that!!
: Glad to hear you're getting older women! WHere are you working?

I have a little booth at a flea market with a couch, music, chairs,
and I do some mehndi and sell some clothes, bindis, jewelry, etc.
And I've just been getting great/strange customers lately. Did a
home party and it was mostly the lady's family and everyone from
great aunts to grandma had some done and everyone was thrilled and
waiting for the next party. The best compliment was that they
thought that the history and sisterhood connection was just
facinating and the host told me I was the party and I made her nite!

I also have an agent (he found me at my market) and he books me at
parties and festivals where instead of paying for space, they pay me
to be there. (Don't know how he does it but I'm not complaining!!!)

I sometimes pop up at a festival that my friend will be working and
make a 'guest appearance' at her booth, henna for awhile and split
the profits with her or go to her shop on a weekday.

Boy....didn't expect that answer to be so long!

So how much longer may I expect this wonderful wierdness to
continue? Is it planning to get much wierder????????????
