Ok, so since I have this art fair coming up on the 24th and i am REALLY excited/nervous about it and I have been trying to make stuff every day for it! My original goal was to make 4 new things a day but that changed to three and then two when I realized I was spending like 12 hours a day on sewing projects!
So the whole reason for this (maybe) ridiculous daily quota nonsense was because at the last fair I did in June, (which was the first one ever for me!) it was raining, hardly any customers showed up and less than half of the vendors showed up.. (-->so I had much less competition for customers... although many fewer overall potential customers.) I did pretty well sales wise... (at least I think so, since I didn't really know what to expect!) and lots of my sales were from people who I already sort of kind of knew... so they didn't really count!!
ANYWAY, I felt really underprepared last time (with a small inventory - less than 50 items! and even smaller display area) and so I am trying to put a lot more thought into how my items will be displayed... which has of course become another source of art fair related anxiety for me!
Ok, so getting to the point... I thought I might post some pictures of what I've been working on lately so you know I haven't just been sitting around picking my nose or something. heh. AND if you can think of any display ideas, please let me know in the comments below!
|I have been working on these glass pendants the most recently, some of them are already on Etsy here.|
There are also a few felt pendants in this picture, and a few felt things are also on Etsy here.
All of these pendants are double sided, and are/will be sold with silver-toned chains, so they're like two necklaces in one!
All pendants that I don't sell at the fair ont he 24th will be listed on Etsy.
|All bracelets are double sided, with one painstakingly embroidered side and one side with patterned cotton fabric.|
They can all be comfortably worn with either side facing out.
