Saturday Market


I was pleased with my first showing at Saturday Market. I sold 6 pieces and 3 cards. I had lots of positive feedback which I needed to hear...don't we all need that. Two of the adjectives I kept hearing to describe my art was fun and whimsical.
I had told Marianne that I was waiting to buy my own canopy to see how my first day would go, if this was something I would even do again and she said oh, it's lots of fun, even if you don't sell anything just seeing all the people etc. and I agree It was nice to be out, It didn't hurt either that the weather was really nice and my set up was on the shady side of the square so I didn't get hot until almost the end.
My husband was out of town with the truck, so I had to borrow a car and then my daughter overslept and didn't come to help me. So the logistics of doing it all by my self were a little daunting. But I did have my friend Sharki who lent me her car -ride her bike over to help me set up, so that was nice. Now I need to get busy and make some more stuff! Nancy was a doll and found me a couple cute little things at a garage sale that I can use in a project.

Good job! It's amazing how much encouragement you get from selling something. I'm getting ready for my 2nd year at the Boulder Art Fair and hoping I'm as successful as you are...
