I needn't have worried about a line, I waited a total of about 25 seconds. And it took only that long for the girls to find my cards, too! The whole shop was full of their delighted squeals, the ladies working that day found it hilarious, thankfully.
As I was getting my packages weighed and stamped, I told the lady helping me that the kids were so excited about the crab and octopus because I was the artist who made the cards. Then it was even cuter to them because they were so excited.
The cards were displayed in two different places in the shop, and it looked like they had already sold about half of what they had ordered from me, which is great! Mostly the octopus card, there was only one of those left that I could see. And of course I took some sneaky photos; it felt weird to me to take photos, but I really wanted some!

So there you have it! I will be working harder on getting more of my cards in other shops in the Seattle area, Just waiting until after Christmas to do more sales calls. Not really the best time of year to do it, but I made a personal commitment to go every week, so I need to stick with it. Until next time guys!
