|New Celtic Spiral card debuted@Women's Gifts.|
I just had a successful day at the Buffalo Women's Gifts show last weekend. The organizers posted some photos on their Facebook page - great crowds, and wonderful locally-crafted work. One of the best moments was a repeat customer who stopped by to tell me how much she loved my work. Wow, that was just awesome. I love when that happens.
Most popular item of the show: packages of 3 and 6 mini-cards. I almost sold out of them.
Next up is the Last Minute Panic sale at the Western New York Book Arts Center in downtown Buffalo. The dates/times are Friday, December 16th from 4pm to 8pm and Saturday, December 17th from noon to 6pm. This one makes me a little more nervous than other shows I've done because it's a very print-knowledgeable crowd, and I want to show only my best stuff. Also need more prints than cards, I think. I really hope I have enough time to do all of the things that I have in my head!
464 Gallery on Amherst Street in Buffalo. The Gallery will also have a space at the Niagara Holiday Market, which I was invited to participate in but just can't commit the time. It's a great idea, and I really hope this first Market will be successful. Hopefully some of my work will show up there too if the Gallery folks need to fill some space!
Oh, and I think I may have tweeted this at some point over the weekend - I love my Square! So convenient, and so easy to use at a show. Beats the heck out of any other credit card system that I've used - highly recommend it to other artists and small business owners.
