Yesterday’s final sale turned out to be a strong finish!
Once again, I had my first customer before opening, courtesy of Lisa Brightfire Photography. Also for the first time, I had more paintings sold which increased from the previous days. After Melanie Johnston bought a painting for herself, she bought one for her mom who made an appearance at my booth as well!
Probably my biggest disappointment was that the new Artist Alley coordinator Veronica Knowlton promised me that she would come to my booth and buy some cards. However, she couldn’t make it due to time restraints, although she did stop by to see how the sale was going.
While I was breaking down the booth today, I managed to stop by her office to give her a bunch of cards and a painting so she wouldn’t feel left out and I was so glad that she finally got to see it!
Overall, this was without question one of the best sales I’ve had this year because I was able to get more people to see it and buy stuff and I was able to get a busier time. One of the key things that attracted my customers was my new logo and business cards, which flew out the door like crazy, so people can keep in touch with me!
If I were to make any changes, probably the only thing I’d do is to make the sign larger so people could see the logo more clearly.
Special thanks to coordinators Melanie Johnston and Veronica Knowlton for their supporting me throughout the sale, my assistants for helping me put this together, and everyone who came out and bought something! Looking forward to the next card sale and future art shows!
