LOML and I did the Brentwood Fall Art Show today. We had a good time at the show, but it was a bust. We sold a total of 1 pen for $40. Money-wise, it was the worst show we’ve done yet. Interestingly, the spring version of this show a few months ago was the best show we’ve ever done. Same affluent demographic, but people were being tight with their purses. All the vendors we talked to were having similarly dismal sales. It was a good-sized crowd, beautiful weather, and we had very positive responses from people who saw my stuff. Lotta people, but not many of them carrying purchased merchandise. This doesn’t leave me with a real warm and fuzzy feeling for next weekend in South Pasadena. Ah well, that’s the way the woodchips fly.
Here are the obligatory pics...
As I said, we did have fun. And I sold enough stuff mail order last week to cover our entry fee for this show.
