Being a potter is a life style choice. For 25 years Sheila and I retailed pots from our showroom. Saturdays in December meant waiting for customers to arrive to buy pots, gift wrapping and usually ordering a pizza on a Saturday night since we were both too tired to make dinner. Since we no longer have a showroom we decided at 2:30 this aft to stop making pots and walk downtown to the West Town and have a beer. It's nice to be able to do that but the down side is we spent money instead of making money. On Facebook I see friends flogging their wares on Etsy and the like. Every potter is trying to squirrel their nuts away for the winter. I just got an I-phone so maybe next year Etsy. Getting with the 21st is taking it's toll on me. Oh BTW, the beer was delicous- Creemore Springs which a favourite of mine.
