We did a one-day show in Thousand Oaks today, about 45 miles west of our place. Great weather, big show, tons of people, but relatively slow sales. Sold a little over $300 worth, but I about doubled my entry fee, so I don't feel too bad. This was definitely more of a street fair than an art show, so there weren't as many people shopping for $100+ items as at some shows we've done. Nonetheless, we had a fun time, I got a boatload of compliments on my work, and we made more money than if we'd been sitting at home. Here are a few obligatory pics...

And here's a pic of my most commented-on display. This bowl is not for sale (I tell people it's because LOML put her dibs on it), but I bring it to every show with a series of photos showing the progress from root ball to bowl. The display never fails to get a lot of amazed looks, and I could have sold this bowl a dozen times in the last year. (The other reason it's not for sale is that I messed up the bottom, tried to patch the mistake and made it worse, so I stopped before I ruined it completely. Even though this piece gets tons of positive feedback, and it looks great until you turn it over and look at the bottom, it doesn't meet my standards for something I'd want to sell with my name on it.)
