Wasn't as productive as the day before. Lots of people walking through, only one customer. And that was at the very end of the day.
On the plus side, no complaints about prices. I sometimes worry as locally, prices are 'seen' as high. Which they're not. I am trying to make a profit, not a killing.
I will say this... She was the best type of customer. When she saw the necklace [which I'll leave a photo of below] she knew it was for her. Tried it on, and never took it off. And she may come back for another piece.
Even with the slow day, it wasn't bad by any means. And I had fun.
There was a minor controversy as one of the artists put up a sculpture at the front of the event, in a place where everyone could see it, included those in the major road just outside. I won't get into what it was, but I will say that it was in bad taste to place something that could be seen to some as highly disrespectful, at the entrance to an event. Something that specific sets the tone and implies that it stands for everyone inside.
Guess you could say that artistic expression is fine, so long as its kept at your personal booth, or isn't something that will upset other vendors. And that you should have the approval of both the event coordinators AND the location owners, if its held at a private establishment.
Enough about that. Over the next two weeks, I'm going to try and write a bit more about my design process, some writing thoughts and in general prepare for my Blog Tour. I have a lot to get ready for, but I want to keep you updated on how things are going.
Below, you'll find pictures from Friday and Saturday's events AND the necklace I sold last night.
