The Holiday Market at Stifel & Capra this weekend was a success! It was my first time marketing/selling and to be honest I didn’t really expect any pieces to go my first time out. I was pleasantly surprised to sell all my bigger pieces and a few accessories. Even made a profit, which isn’t the goal, but a nice surprise.
I learned people like dressers and people like frames.
I even had a couple that was disappointed when they came back hours later to discover that the dresser they were eying was sold hours earlier. I told her that I would scout out another for her and paint it to her tastes. She kept saying the dresser was perfect & what she wanted. Felt badly, but it’s a good position when multiple people want to buy what you’ve created.
Just want to thank all my family & friends for coming to support me. Thanks for moving my stuff, calling your friends, hanging out with me, taking pix and just being there. A special thank you to my BIL, Brado, for hanging out all day & helping me use my receipt book and to my girl, Greta, who stayed by my side, whispering, “I’m so proud of you, Mommy.”
Thank you, my Love.
