I am at the Pacific Mall in Toronto for the first time. I set
a table for
the two weeks around Chinese New Year. The impetus to try
that I had made some silver character pins as gifts at Christmas for
friends. I couldn't help wondering if other
people might be interested in having them made. They were! I
had a lot of fun and the
people at the mall were terrific.
next show I did was the Dragon Boat Festival
on Centre Island
in 2005. It was so hot it was almost impossible to
enough to make the items. There was so little wind that the
although saving me from burning in the sun, made the
area underneath like an oven.
my second trip to Pacific Mall in August of
2005, I refinished my desk in a dark red and added gold characters to
Christmas I had my third trip to Pacific
Mall , I found a small
size #1 dress and realized that it would make the cutest necklace
display. I also made an improvized stand to display two more
pictures of my pieces being worn.
my forth trip to Pacific Mall, I made an easel
to put up a new sign. I changed the wording of my sign a bit
"訂造手刻字." The next time I do a show, the characters on the desk will
also reflect the new change.
designed my desk to break down into four pieces
and fold up. Everything that I take to a show can be put on
hand cart, moved in one trip and by one person. This efficiency is one
of the things that I'm very proud of.
