... but let me address this because it is very important. I'm very happy that there are still folks processing for the art rather than the profit. I was once blessed with a local guy who spoke just like you... but then he wasn't able to feed his family and had to close shop. I still see him and the part that hurts is that after re-wickering his business he still can't feed his family. He was always satisfied being a "poor artist" but being a starving artist is something he simply can't share with his family. As I said... I'm very happy that there are still folks like you and I hope you continue to be profitable enough to stay in the business and eat/feed yourself an dyour family too.
