Christiansted Jump-Up, first of the season!
Thanks to Alma's efforts,the Palletteers set up a Christmas Shoppe in the conference room Upstairs at the Comanche to sell our artworks during the first Jump-Up of the season, held Friday evening from 6-10PM. Alma, her husband Rudy, Marilyn, Carolyn and I were there to set up and help with the shop. Carolyn had brought a Christmas tree on which we displayed many of the ornaments our members had hand painted as a fund raiser for the Palletteers. Other items included original paintings, hand painted cards, and prints. The music was lively and the crowd was full of good cheer (and probably some rum and beer, too!). Although it appeared to us that fewer people were out for this first event of the season, each one of us sold something and we even sold some of our unique ornaments... so it was a good night for everyone!
