I'm going to be honest and say I'm a little spoiled with the ease of selling online. You know it's hard to imagine that before the internet, working a craft fair/show was one of the few ways an artist to could their work with an audience. Thank you *internet* and a BIG hats off to the artists who do these kinds of shows regularly. After a few days of recuperating, reflecting traveling, visiting, packing, re-packing...it was a great weekend and well worth all the work that went into making those two days happen. Now I don't know if I will ever do it again...but I probably will. As awkward as it is to stand smiling, sometimes yawning, behind your work in a huge room filled with hundreds of other artists, I can't stress enough how important it is to for an artist to experience this~ especially getting the chance to see and visit with their customers in person.
Thanks to all of you who came out and took the time to stop by the booth and say hello! It was great to meet you!!
