Anyone who missed my past card sales or didn’t get a chance to buy any of my cards, this is your opportunity! This summer, I’m returning to Artist Alley at the Alameda County Fair to sell my new cards and display my past creations.
For those who don’t know what Artist Alley is, basically a lot of local artists from the Bay Area display their masterpieces such as sculpture, jewelry, handmade crafts, or anything else creative.
This will be my third year doing it and I’m hoping for a successful sale. The first year I did it back in 2016, I only displayed my paintings and did a demonstration of some paintings I created. It was okay, but the problem was that it was a little too much work because of all the set up and clean up. Plus, I didn’t get a lot of people to come watch my demonstration.
Last year was my first card sale and it was a better idea since I didn’t have to do a live demonstration. The only downside was that I only had three days to sell everything, but not a lot of people came due to the extremely hot weather. The other thing was that I didn’t have a logo or business card at that time.
Since I have these things now, this will be one of the key points to a successful sale and this will give people a chance to contact me if they’d like to order cards.
The Alameda County Fair is June 15 – July 8 from 11 am – 11 pm (closed Monday and Tuesday), and my card sale will be the last week of the fair from the 4th of July (Fair Closes at 6 pm) – July 8.
More details will be announced later, so if you’re planning to go to the fair on those dates, I hope you stop by and buy some cards!
