This is what it's all about.

OK, you may want to read the previous post first, to understand what this one is all about.

I took my pots into a very upmarket shop in Ilminster this afternoon, in an attempt to get back in the saddle after this mornings Rodeo ride of emotions.

I took the very same pots in the very same Apple box and Sold the lot, What a difference.
This lady Loved them and I love this Lady.

I want to say a VERY BIG " THANK YOU" to Marion, who kept my spirits up this morning and kept me believing in myself. My first propper sale.

That feels good.

Paul, long long ago, I was in sales and it is such an emotional roller coaster of highs and lows. You take it so personally. But when you are selling something you put your heart and soul into, it's even more so. Good for you for getting back out there and finding a worthy person to sell your beautiful pots. Screw that other lady I say! Her loss!!!!!

I am in the lucky situation that I can sell most of my work from my studio but you must not get too upset by these people, as you said, "What does she know". As long as for every one or two that don't like your stuff there is someone that does you will do fine. Keep up the good work!
