Over the weekend & helped out the in-laws on their garden glove stall at The Spring Gardening Show in Malvern. It was physically tiring to be on my feet for 10 solid hours for 2 days running. But it was a well received change from the usual stress of 9-5 office job.
I found the whole experience very rewarding. Selling a simple garden glove to an avid gardener is not a taxing task. After a week in web development this was such a joy. There’s no system requirements or ongoing support. No compatibility issues. Gardeners weren’t going home to find their version 2.10 latex rubber hand protection is not going to work with a “Lawn95” suburban garden.
Knowing that the product I was selling is of top quality & selling it to a happy customer for a reasonable price was very satisfying indeed.
