I can feel it. Today's the day I'll get a bunch of sales at the show :) Yesterday was the first day of the Durham Art Walk and while I got lots of 'ooohs' and 'aaahs' I didn't sell a thing! Everyone who stopped by would say wonderful things, so very sweet, and then move on. When I did the Art Walk in November, it was a huge hit for me so, I guess I was hoping for the same success this time around.
I know my prices are high to some people. I get that. For a long time I've sold items for so much less than they cost me time-wise. I can't do that anymore; give away my time. So, I guess it follows that not everyone will buy. I remember one lady who purchased 3 of my mini albums in November's show saying 'I feel like I'm stealing from you'. I love that lady. I hope she's there today and steals from me again :)
The silver lining? I've met some great people, put my name out there to potential new customers, and had another one of life's learning experiences. That's never a bad thing.
So, friends, I'm gonna get ready for my last day at the Durham Art Walk. Wish me luck!
I'll leave you with a few of my new mini albums. These little paper bags are so awesome! I've only got a few left so I might try to hang on to them for a while. :) I made these with Mother's day in mind...
