"I wonder how much a booth cost....I want to sell my old shirts."
Luckily he was walking by my booth and not in it. My mouth fell open and then I started laughing. Yeah...thanks dude. Like we all want our work compared to your old sweat stained shirts.
It was a great show!!! Friday it rained during set-up but stopped by showtime. The only problem was the rain brought out the smell of dog in the park. I brought Oust spray with me on Saturday but once everything dried out the smell went away. Saturday and Sunday were roasting. The tent was under full sun and it turned it into a hot house. That was miserable. The guys on either side of me had battery operated Ryobi fans. I have to get a couple of these before the next summer show.
But I can't complain too much.....jewelry was flying out the door. I went home Friday and Saturday night and worked in the studio to make more necklaces. That was the big seller at this show. Usually it's earrings.
I also had two gallery owners talk to me about putting work in their shops. This is something I want to explore. Anybody got any experience with this?? I don't know the first thing about consignment....which is probably why I haven't done it before now.
I don't do another show until November. I have 5 months to play in the studio!!!! But first I have to clean it...LOL....I can barely walk into it right now.
Bonne Nuit, Mes Amis
