Today, Monday 2nd Pentecost, Renske-Art and Studio "Nevada's Dream" again are manning a stand. Like last year, we are positioned at the church, at the start of the silver route. Given the weather forecast, I have my concerns in advance. Around the church it’s always windy and for today is doesn’t look that particular warm and bright. Mindset! So I get dressed well, leaving nothing to chance.
I get in the car 7:00 am, heading for De Bilt. Renske and I ride together to the silver city, where we organize the stand. It soon becomes clear that there is a great turnout. Despite the disappointing weather, there are many visitors. The enthusiasm for Art Clay Silver still prevails and is again fully present this year. Even the sale goes beyond expectations.
We keep ourselves warm with coffee and snacks. The greasy bite is bad, I know, but oh so nice to stay warm. Just after lunchtime Jolanda, a good friend of Renske, arrives to fulfill the coffee needs with a full cafetiere. Lovable, cause especially for us she partly sacrificed her free Sunday to provide us with hot drinks.
Besides Jolanda and all other interested visitors, some fellow instructors also stopped by to chat for a moment. Tine Demol, Ann Robles, Brigitta Hendriks and Marianne de Bakker visited the Silver Day and therefore our stand.
At the end of this day we appear able to pack up and clear the stand in record time. We quickly drive to De Bilt, pack over a few things in my small Daewoo Matiz and then I continue towards Harderwijk.
Renske, it was super, thanks again for a cozy and collegial day!
Next year again?
