It's pretty funny in a way. When I first started working at this job I was still carrying around my tie dye in my car because I'd go every weekend to the Farmers Market. When the season ended I offered up to co-workers a bunch of shirts at $5. Not my best stuff, more like the stuff no one else wanted.
A year and some later, I don't have much of the clearance stuff left. And I've sent off most everything else, including new stuff, to a consignment shop.
So what happens? We get a new gal at work who loves my shirts. I've done 2 for her.... told her she didn't have to take em if she didn't like em... she was vague on what she wanted. No, she snapped em up. So then 2 other ladies want me to do dyed shirts for them.
And now I've got orders for 10 shirts AT WORK. Thankfully no one is in a rush. I only dye on weekends, and it pretty much has to be LWI when it's cold... Even tho I tie stuff up and then set it into a bucket, it's basically LWI. And that is what everyone loves... you can get "classic" tie dye anywhere I guess... but one of a kind shirts? Only from me around here.
It does figure that one older gal wants me to make 3 the same color and style. No rush... it's something she does for Christmas every year. (buys matching shirts for the 3 remaining women in her family, she's included) I did explain to her that my method didn't guarantee that all 3 would come out exactly the same, but as long as the basic colors are the same she's okay.
Still have an ongoing order for shirts for another friend.. so I guess I'll be busy for a while on weekends. It's just funny. And I'm probably too cheap.
