As you know yesterday I was a little bit discouraged…but today was a much better day. Well I only got two hours of sleep last night..for some reason I just couldnt sleep and so when the alarm went off this morning, needless to say I was not looking forward to having my spirits sink even lower. And even though it was cold…I brought a foot heater and dressed in layers (we were indoors..but no heat in the big drafty building)…and tried to appear cheerful and not get dissapointed.
And I brought my camera today, and as luck would have it the little girl whose Mom rented the booth acrooss from me brought her bird. (pictures to follow) and I also started taking pictures of all the people, the merchandise and some cute little Chinese Crescents with mohawks and some yorkies that a lady was selling in a corner booth.
And then..as luck would have it..the people started flooding in despite the rain and forty degree weather. So I had a lot of interested viewers..answered a ton of questions… bought a couple of Christmas presents for my kids, made some more great contacts…one potential business partner..and managed to sell enough to more than break even… So all in all….it was worth it!
I even have a couple of little special orders for some small pictures and also some requests for some location pictures…. So although I have lots of inventory left…I feel like the last two days were successful.
On a side note….If anyone would like some signed numbered framed prints..I have a bunch left that would make great Christmas gifts…..just let me know…lol
So although yesterday I was a little upset…today I feel renewed and determined!
