Craft Sales Are… Learning Experiences
So I showed my work at a craft sale over the weekend.
Standing in the thick of it, I was worried it wasn’t a strong presentation, but I felt differently after reviewing this photo.
Truthfully, I find it almost easy to forget this was my table. ::laughs:: Silly, but true.
Positives, to take away from the experience would be…
- I earned enough to cover my table fee
- I made business cards, and a few were taken by potential customers
- Practice making a nice display and getting a feel for next time
- learning from a very experienced artist that KeyCon’s art show will probably be a bad venue, unfortunately, so be cautious there.
- I met some really nice other artists
- I barely earned enough to cover my table fee
- There was hardly any foot traffic, which is almost a neutral, as I may have sold more, if more people had come through.
I made some new things that no one batted an eyelash at; I’m not terribly worried. Not sure if they weren’t well displayed, or thought to be over priced… I think I’ll turn my little “witch potions” into necklaces, and then they’ll be more attractive. Worst caseÂ scenario, the snakes become dragons ::coughs::
Speaking of dragons… I’m working on custom USB keys.
I don’t remember if I mentioned that? This is my second one, which is a work in progress. I think the side with the red dragon is a little… empty, and it’s the front, so I need to do a bit more before I can post it to Etsy. Already some love for it on Instagram, so that’s heartening. I have a second one waiting to be varnished at the same time. I have one pre-sold, so I shall let my customer pick their favourite, and list the other.
I am going to try very hard to post here at least every week. ::nods:: No guarantees, of course, but I shall try.
