Hello everyone. Well, I survived it. It wasn't quite a disaster of Titanic proportions, but it came pretty close! Not many sales at all but at least I ended the day in profit, it was a brilliant first experience and I met some wonderful people.
From talking to other stallholders, it seems that sales were down for the entire event - too many other things going on locally apparently, as visitor numbers were much lower than they've had before. But never mind, there were a lot of people showing a real interest in my cards, even if they didn't buy any, and asked me lots of questions and were, I think, genuinely complementary. Quite a few stopped to watch me painting images too.
Would I do it again? Probably. The next one is at Easter and the organiser has already asked me if I would like to reserve a table, so obviously I wasn't completely terrible!
Anyhoo, onto a card for today. I feel pretty shattered after yesterday so this one is a bit ..... oh I don't know, a bit ..... well, you'll see what I mean. Oh, and it is straight - even if the photo does make it look squint!
