today Renske and I attended the Silver Day
in Schoonhoven. This time we were allocated
a whole stand, something we hadn’t
reckoned with. We normally staff a half
stand, thereby we always carry too much
stuff with us and now we even seem to have
taken too little.
Inventive as we are, we decide to remove one table and replace everything more into the stand. In case of unexpected rain, we won’t get wet and even some visitors are able to follow unhindered the explanation and demonstration of silver clay.
However there is a lot of wind, especially where we are settled for this day. At the very beginning - or end, which of course just depends on where one begins the route - at the church. And around the church there always happens to be wind, a small disadvantage drawback we refuse to prevail over the benefits of this unique location. For we have welcomed many curious visitors say! A great turnout!
The day passes quickly and unlike other years we decide to participate the closure at the Silver Museum. A cocktail hour with appetizers, yummy! During this closure, they give an impression of the day and there’s also the award ceremony for the Novelty Show. Renske took part again, now for the 2nd time. A fair number of visitors cast their votes and despite the fact that Renske scored high with her brooch "Tulip: Made in Holland ', she didn’t recieve an award.
We go home quickly, it was a great! Renske, next year again?
