I Think I Would of Lost my Mind

When my family moved me out of my apt, the women in my family (3 sister-in-laws and my sister) took all my crochet items and all my yarn to sort it all out. OK, I'll admit I have accumilated alot of both over the years, and to the everyday person who doesn't crochet, it would seem to be too much.

So, one of my sister-in-laws decided to sell everything at her church's upcoming FLEA MARKET!!! Well, being stuck in wheelchair, with no access to getting there (I think my sister, took charge of it all, didn't want me there), so I little choice in the matter, but I did have a say about keeping my unfinished projects!!)

Now, after they got the first dibs on anything there they wanted (my call), they went on to 'sell' everything else.

What they really did was practically 'give' my stuff away. They just treated my work like it belonged in a flea market!!! Selling thing at 3/4 it's worth, just to 'get rid' of it. They have little sense of the value and quality of my work,well, except for something THEY want!

But to be there at wach it all unfold, I would of lost my mind!!!!

Years of all my work, reduced to 'flea market' prices, and couldn't do anything about it.

I don't like flea markets!!I I't not the forum to sell handmade work.

Oh well,its done now, butI learned a couple of things...not to make so many things, try to sell them right away, just make things for myself, and most importantly,

I was one of the people that was at that flea market and although the prices were cheap your sisters were able to introduce me to your work. You are talented and I look forward to purchasing more of your items in the future. I have told everyone who will listen about the quality of your work and have shown the items I bought and have in turn gotten them interested in your items. So see it as a blessing. You just got a new customer from a Flea Market.

That's too bad. They had no right to do that.
