bunny and brent's windy vancouver event day
Carol · Jun. 18, 2012
Carol, well the sun came out for a couple of minutes, but the rain stayed away. Unfortunately we can’t say the same about the gale force winds. We had to get assistance taking the booth down 3.5 hours into the festival. We were at the beach end of Denman Street and the winds were crazy. It was great and then it wasn’t, I was screaming at Brent as he was darting all over the street grabbing stuff. Eventually all of the vendors on our end of the street packed up – including us.
It’s always weird meeting “your public”. So many people know of you or have worked with you. Many people speak so highly of you and the work you do at Saints. Met a couple of people from SPCAs not in BC that even know about Carol and Saints Rescue.
Then of course there are always the nay-sayers,such as the disabled man who thought all of the animals should be put down. I expected better from a disabled person, but the human race never ceases to amaze me.
In our 3 1/2 hours on Denman Street we took in $146.30 which we will bring with us next Sunday. My goal was $200, or $33 / hour. Our actual take per hour was $41.80 so had the weather cooperated we would have made our goal.
