This past Thursday and Friday we were set up at a church boutique and there was only 12 vendors on 2 different floor levels. We had 2 tables set up with my bowls and too many other items to list but I did have my one and only river table there as well.

The doors opened at 9:30 and we didn’t have anybody until nearly 10:30 and as luck would have it two ladies came by and looked, commented and started to move on until they saw the table. I hesitated for a little bit because they were talking to each other and one lady kept pointing to the table and making gestures like she was arranging a room.

I finally approached them and the one lady introduced herself and her friend to me. The one lady asked questions about the table and I explained as best I could without getting technical.

She looked at her friend and said, should I call him or just make an executive decision ? Do you take Master Card was the next question, I answered that I did and I would take the table to her car if she wanted me to.
Of course I took it out and on the way she mentioned that she was from Columbus visiting her friend that had brought her to the show. Columbus is at minimum 2 1/2 hours from The show.

I loaded the table, thanked them both again and went back inside. Later in the afternoon I got an email on my phone and this is it

Mr. Byrd,

I placed your table in my family room. It’s just as perfect there as I envisioned it would be. I love the history of the wood and I appreciate your craftmanship of such a beautiful piece.

Isn’t life grand ??

I was shocked when I got the email, in all of my sales that is the first and will be the most memorable sale for quite some time.
