Art walking weekend event.....Sales Report

April 28th, 2008 at 09:01 am

I was a vendor in a city sponsored, well attended art walk event over the past weekend. I had 2 spaces:
1. A single 6' table in the thick of the highly visited pedestrian area

2. Unmanned display in a room off the main drag

Cost of the first was $33
Cost of the second was $0

Sales from the first $150+ **Smile**
Sales from the second nothing yet, (I haven't picked up my stuff yet).

It was a looooong 16 hours manning the table over the 2 day event, but I enjoy meeting and talking to my customers (otherwise it wouldn't be the right business for me).

Wonderful to feel validated by folks buying your crafts. I sold some of everything: bracelets, fancy earrings, casual earrings, men's jewelry, photo albums (like the little one shown in the left column), cross stitched cards, pressed flower cards.

Pooped but satisfied.

    I set up at book fairs and festivals, so I know all about the long hours- It was aboput $90.00 to set up at a festival last year ( samll town) and I made my money back, plus a little- I am doing fairs this year.
