Wow!! What a couple of days it was. My baking partner Nikki, from Ware's Dessert, and I held our first Pop Up Shop for Valentine's Day. We had no idea what to expect. We planned it for a few hours on the Thursday before Valentine's Day, for anyone who wanted to give a teacher's or co-worker's gift on Friday. I made a certain number of cookies, having no idea if anyone would show up or not. Nikki handled the sale on Thursday night and sent me a few texts during the event. It was a complete sell out!! Whoa, do you know what that meant? That I was going to have to crank out as many cookies as I could on Friday, to sell on Saturday morning. I worked all day, and I mean all day. Dog tired at the end of the night, but, happily decorating over 100 more cookies for the sale. Saturday was also a great day. We almost sold out of everything we had. This event was so successful that we're planning another one for Easter. We learned some good lessons on what to do and what not to do. Thank you to all who supported our event. We truly appreciate each and every one of you. Time to get back to baking.
