Yesterday evening I went to dinner with my friend and frequent blog reader Susan Yates. She had offered to make some of her great coasters made from Route 66 fabrics so that I could see if they would sell at Afton Station. Frankly, she seemed less sure than I was that they would be marketable. I was pretty sure they'd be a hit.
Well. . . the first travelers through the door were a neat couple from Ringwood, Australia, driving Route 66 in a rental motor home. And. . . the wife made a beeline for Susan's coasters and bought one before even looking at anything else. So, there you go, Susan! A hit! (The coasters come in three different Route 66 fabrics and are filled with sand, so they can even be used on the console of your car without much fear of slippage or sloppage. A very nice small, inexpensive, "packable" gift.) Here's our Aussie visitor showing off her purchase.
Ron M. helped out today, and Robin and Phil stopped in for a while, too. It was a rather quiet but satisfying day.
