Today was very enjoyable. I was a vendor at the Bead Bonanza in Southfield, MI, and I was reminded of how long I've been buying and selling beads. Not only did I chat with many of my bead friends, but I also waited on a woman who said I was the first person she ever purchased beads from at a bead show, and she was very gracious and said I was really nice.
The wheel turns round and round. I'm happy that she remembered me positively, and it was so wonderful to talk to people I've known for years. Even though vendors only see each other at shows (usually), there is this nice feeling of brotherhood that you develop over time.
It was a very nice experience. Yay for beads!
