The minute I got up, I was in the kitchen chopping fruit and veggies for the black bean, pineapple,salsa for the TRAC tour. It's a very refreshing salsa with a lot of attitude. After breakfast I'll make the smoked salmon dip for the non spicy food lovers; and there's always cookies and pretzels if they don't like the salmon. I'm glad I didn't make those for the first day of the tour yesterday. Other than a friend who stopped by on her way from town, I only got one car that arrived about 15 minutes before the 4 o'clock closing and they made a purchase.
With over 100 studios on the tour now, they've extended the tour by the half day Friday; but it looks like tour goers, wisely hit particularly areas since these 100 studios are very spread out over two counties.
This is the first year they got my location right on the map so it will be interesting to see if I get more traffic. Fortunately I usually get a good ratio of sales per car; but with the economy as it is, and rain in the forecast we'll just have to wait and see what the rest of the weekend brings.
I'm already chomping at the bit to get back to work in my very clean and tidy (for me) studio.
