As for Sticky Dollar Day, That's not what the City's Cultural and Nature Operations department calls it. They call it Kid's Day or some such, and nearly all the schools in the North Central Baja Jorja area, definitely those in the county's surrounding Alachua County, send their kids on Field Trips to the Faire. Since the City charges admission even for them, it's a big day for the City.
However, despite the contract clause that requires Merchants to be present on Sticky Dollar Day, most of us don't sell a lot. Skippy did 'the usual' as far as sales go; a few small ones and one big one. The jewelery booth did not sell so much, but did a couple. Herself made some sales, more than she'd expected which surprised her a bit.
One more measure of this year differing from previous years, though, is how many of the children came by the Midsummer Knight's Dream booth to look at the puppets. Even without sales, and stipulating that during the big shows most of the people will be down there so the booths experience lulls, the puppets usually stack them in three-deep in ranks surrounding the display.
Not so much this year. One rank surrounding, yes. Once, even two deep. No more than that.
So. Up early again. Out to feed the Ranch soon, then off to the Faire.
