[ my first harvest. don’t laugh. i’m proud ]
Heading out for another road trip today. This trip will be two-fold. I’ll get to enjoy visiting with my mom and sis in North Carolina. In addition, I’m going to show off my wares and hopefully sell a few – well, a lot.
You never know what’s going to happen with these things. (By these things I’m referring to private parties, private sales, trunk sales, craft fairs, etc.) My experience with fairs has left me feeling that I just don’t want to mess with it. This time it’s an event for realtors that will be catered, offer free manicures and pedicures, and have a couple of sellers (that’s where I fit in).
I am more excited about attending this show because it will be the first time I’ve come face-to-face with consumers who will consider buying my bags, which I’ve only been selling since the first of this year. I’m a little nervous, a little excited.
Now it’s your turn…
1. As a seller, what has been your experience with this type of thing?
2. If you’re on Etsy, do you inactivate your items or put the shop in “vacation mode” when you sell for an event?
and as a consumer…
3. What’s been your best experience with an artist at an event? Your worst?
4. What do you most like to see?
Hoping you have a great week!
