Yesterday’s sale was definitely one of the best sales so far!
Tons of cards sold like hotcakes and the new box set has started to become more popular now, thanks to the client who suggested it on the first day! Also, four paintings were sold, three water color and one acrylic.
Special guests included uCamps director Doug Cembellin and his fiancé Amy and Artist Alley Coordinator Melanie Johnston.
However, the real highlight was being interviewed by social media coordinator Megan Kreider. When she came to the booth during 4th of July, she took pictures of my booth to post on Instagram. Then, I noticed one of the other booths near me was doing a live interview and that was something that I wanted to do to promote my business.
The only other time this happened was during my first year in 2016 from The Filipino Channel. Originally, the interviewer Rommel Conclara was supposed to arrive around 6 PM, but came about an hour late. At least the interview was good.
After sending them a private message, I didn’t think they were going to do it. However, they did manage to show up early and the interview was on! Basically, they’ve asked me the same questions that everyone has been asking me such as where do you get your inspiration or where do you get them printed.
The main reason for this interview was to explain how it got started and to honor the anniversary of my grandfather’s passing. If that wasn’t enough, the real kicker was honoring Melanie because if she didn’t mention Artist Alley, I wouldn’t be doing it!
After showing her the interview, her reaction was priceless, especially when I mentioned her, which led her to break into tears! Maybe that’s why the sale was so successful!
Let’s hope for another successful sale today and I hope to see some of you today or tomorrow!
