Hi there! How was your weekend? As I mentioned in my Wednesday newsletter, Friday was busy, busy, busy. I restocked both my craft and my antique booths. But I did take a break in-between for lunch with my sweet friend Nancy.
Then on Saturday, my sweet husband and I drove up to Manchester, VT to take an historic inn tour that was fab-u-lous. So much fun! Even though I don’t write about our adventures as much any more, I will be posting about this one, soon, I promise.
Today it’s time for November’s income report. I’ll be letting you know what’s selling in vintage and antiques via my antique shop and eBay. [Note: My craft booth report will likely come in January, that’s when I receive my check.]

So that’s it for my November sales. It looks like a slow month, but my sales at the Shaker Craft Fair have been very brisk (approximately $600 for November), but I don’t get a full accounting or an actual check until the beginning of January. I’ll do a separate income report on the craft fair in January some time.
During November I focus so much time and energy constantly restocking my craft booth that my eBay sales suffered somewhat, and November was a terrible month at the Gristmill. I’m happy I more than made my rent.
