That would be at Casa Etnika, where El Pajarita y El Jaguar's jewelry is for sale. Helena set our things out on display about a month ago. Remember we introduced it on the April First Friday art walk? It was the middle of April when the display went up and Helena started selling it. The first art walk we sold 3 pairs of earrings. The art walk in May we sold one necklace and 2 pairs of earrings. I was really pleased!!!! No kidding I had told myself that if we sold 1-2 necklaces and a couple of earring sets, I would be more then over the moon. I kept cautioning Martha not to get her hopes or expectations up because we are now in some of the slowest months of the year. There are just not that many visitors (national or foreign) right now. Besides we will quickly run out of people we can shame into buying a piece to support the poor starving birdies.
I made 11 necklaces and 14 pairs of earrings. I was pretty sure that would take us through till Christmas. Helena said she thought we should get through the slow season and the Mexican holiday season, the last 2 weeks of July. Today my trusty secretary/money man LW and I went by to pick up the first 30 days sale money. Helena tells me I need to bring her more earrings and and and necklaces!!!!! What???? Yep there are 3 pairs of earrings left and 2 necklaces!!!! Holy
sh** er mackerel, how did that happen??? And then she says I might want to think about making a good batch of both so that we are ready in July when the country's vacations start!!!
Now I'm rubbing my temples wondering if this is what happens when you set your imagination free...
and Martha is doing the happy dance while singing "We're in the bird seed lovely, lovely bird seed" to the "We're in the Money" tune!! :)
