ArtFest Success

Customers at the ArtFest in Old Town Scottsdale (Nov 21-23) loved Tastes & Treasures. One fellow (shown at right) returned to buy it and wanted a cookie. Leslie and Jeannine joked that he could have a FREE cookbook if he paid $24.95 for a cookie. So he did.

Last year Leslie sold 180 books at the event and as of Sunday at 1 pm she had sold 130 books. She reported final sales of 151 cookbooks, 4 adult, 1 junior and 3 children' aprons for a total of $3,872.05 to support our museum programs.

Leslie expresses her thanks for all the wonderful help - especially to the newcomers - Joan, who helped with set up, and her new sales women, Sharon, Kassie and Lindy. Kassie & Lindy (shown in photo) even helped with tear down. Leslie wondered, how are your backs??

It was a very successful event, considering the economy and hearing other vendors complain that their sales were way down from last year.
