Kids in the old iron ore furnace at Minehill. This is where they processed the ore to separate it from the quartz. Being a rock lover from way back it was neat to find all the discarded quartz still laying outside the furnace.
Old donkey trail that leads up the hills to the mines. Donkey used to bring the ore carts up and down this trail from the mines to the furnace. Quartz still lines the trail.
"Natural AC" close to the top of the hill is one of the openings to the old mines. The mist is the cool air coming from deep inside the mine, a very welcome treat on this sunny humid day! (Note how Jenna looks as if she is melting) We hung out in front of it long enough to stop dripping before the hike back down the hill.
We had lots of interest in new pieces we have been working on but only moved a few of them. I think we would have fared much better if we had brought more inventory. 20x20 is a large space even if you park your vehicle in part of the booth. Given my past show experience from other jobs I should have known better. Our display looked underwhelming, lesson learned!
Lots of the lookers picked up our card so I have to promise myself to start getting at least one listing a day up on Etsy so they can find them there. A look at part of the displays...
Happy Creating! -Ali
