My Display for today's community day event

It was a disappointing venue, no sales at all. I think my price point was too high for the venue, plus people weren't buying from anyone else either. It was a community day so people wanted fun stuff to do and freebies. People, lots a students, were not looking to buy art.

Oh well live and learn right? I did meet some lovely people and bartered some note cards for a foot message so all was not lost. I do have to get into more events where people are looking to buy art/photography and my embroidered items, eclectic assortment I know but I just can't settle on one, I'm lucky I've got it down to three! LOL

At least I took a leap and brought my stuff out for people to see, that was a little scary. I did however get loads of compliments so that; at least was very encouraging.

I will continue along until I find my way.

Spring and Selling

Dress of Shells

Pretty button dress

It's spring finally after a long delay here in the Northeast. Flowers are blooming, grass is being cut and the ice cream truck as already been around once. And I'm taking a flying leap and doing a community day event to sell my wares! I'm so nervous, especially about my display, I've been spending so much time making things to sell that I haven't spent much time on how I'll show it off. Being early in the season I haven't had the time to hit yard sales yet for appropriate items. I will do my best this time around but will make the effort to create a lovely setting improving it as I go along. It is after all a learning process. I just hope I sell something!

So wish me luck and I'll let you know how I do.
