Some good news

I received a phone call today from the Penobscot Marine Museum which is behind my house. It seems Searsport had more Sea Captains living in it than any other town on the east coast at one time. Our town is awash in nautical history and the Penobscot Marine Museum is the jewel in the crown. If you look at the map of the campus, you can see the Searsport Congregational Church which is in my backyard



Well, back to the phone call. They are readying themselves for the summer tourist season and ordering things for the Museum Gift Shop and someone mentioned that instead of buying scarves from a woman from farther away, they heard there was a woman in Searsport who made scarves named Beth Berman.

The next step is that I have an appointment next week to show my scarves and anything else I would like to sell like any jewelry I have left over from my business, purses or tote bags  I am remaining calm and will report the outcome of this meeting at the end of this post since I am writing it 3 weeks before it will appear. I will imagine you are wishing me luck (as I'm sure you would had you know).
Just got back from my "showing" and they LOVE my scarves, mini-purses and they also want some Kindle and Tablet covers in water colors (my colors - blue, green, turquoise and green). They also picked up 5 of the necklaces from my old jewelry business and they want more......off to dye!!
