The bazaar has ended and I've been slowly cleaning my workspace, which I left in a completely chaotic state. It's been a three day cleaning fest but I'm finally done and the space looks so pretty.
Now for the bazaar: We didn't really sell as much as I had hoped, we did cover our expenses (thankfully the participating fee was not high) and had a good profit but we sold a lot fewer things than I had anticipated. Another thing that bothered me was the reaction of a lot of people visiting the fair, they would walk by without asking any questions or even taking a business card from us or the other sellers. I don't know maybe it's the difficult economic state, I did expect that to be a negative factor. Still, I consider it a positive experience, we got to meet many other lovely artists and gained valuable experience for the next one!
I haven't started working on anything new yet, I have a lot of new jewelry to photograph and list in the shop. I started by listing a necklace and these earrings, I just love the green color combination. I was a bit surprised (and sad) that nobody bought them, I thought they are perfect for summer! Oh well, that just goes to show you can never tell what other people will like!
Have a great day!
