It’s Bazaar Time

11-19 christmas-bazaarI’m gear­ing up to sell my books at a local Christ­mas bazaar. Books will be in the minor­i­ty of prod­ucts. There will be sewn lovelies, cut felt hang­ings, hand-made jew­el­ry, paint­ings, and a vari­ety of dec­o­rat­ed items want­i­ng to be under someone’s Christ­mas tree. There will be com­mer­cial booths with can­dy and good­ies galore that may not last until Christ­mas. (I know, any I buy will suf­fer that fate.)

Ah, but books? One can par­take of their delights and still gift them to oth­ers. (That’s what often hap­pen to my hol­i­day pur­chas­es. How­ev­er, one must hold the book only par­tial­ly open so as not to crack the spine, def­i­nite­ly not dog-ear any pages, and nev­er read while eat­ing any­thing sticky.)

And after the bazaar? Will I count my mon­ey, always assum­ing I actu­al­ly sell a few books instead of buy­ing oth­ers’ good­ies. Well, hope­ful­ly. But I’ll go back to pro­mot­ing my book that is cur­rent­ly avail­able for nom­i­na­tion at Kin­dle Scout. (You knew I wouldn’t miss that oppor­tu­ni­ty right now.)

That tak­en care of, I won­der how many of you par­tic­i­pate in Hol­i­day Bazaars. Or, do you suf­fer (like me), with ambiva­lent thoughts of—what? It isn’t even Thanks­giv­ing yet.
