Weekend Of Setbacks
This weekend was one of setbacks.
as "#2 in Northern Virginia and #4 in the State. Consistently Named a "Top 20 Show" In The Nation - "100 Best" Show - Sunshine Artist Magazine 2014.
Thank you for the kind comment Roberta!
Yes, I did fantastic in Gaithersburg. Y'all really like me up there. I meant to make a blog post about that show (soon). I was in 'the barn' in November 2015 and I did just okay. I think the new location helped me get more notice and allowed me to display more of my work.
I WILL be back there in the Fall of 2016, hopefully in the same space as April. I plan to have more inventory as I keep shooting and finding these gems in my travels.
Please keep checking my website as I am adding new stuff all the time.
Sorry about your difficulties but so happy you were at the Sugarloaf show in Gaithersburg, Md. I bought one of your prints as did my friends visiting from PA. I am in love with your work! This Sugarloaf show was so much better than it had been for a couple of years (and I have been attending since the 80's.). You definitely were a highlight and look forward to seeing your work at future shows but might not wait and will buy from your website!
Thank you Jason for the encouragement.
I am trying to network as much as possible with other vendors to find the 'good shows'. Also I have subscribed to Sunshine Artists Magazine in hopes of getting some insider information on these shows before I commit to them.
So of these shows were 'great' the previous season and nobody know why they were down this year. One common refrain I am hearing is that 'during an election year, sales are down because of the uncertainty'. I can't find data to back that up. It is just what a lot of vendors are saying.
I will try to ice the toe and stay off of it as much as possible.
Sorry brother. I know these are growing pains. You need to figure out where you don't do well sometimes before you can tell where you will do well. I know you and know you'll persevere and thrive soon enough. Hang in there, and keep icing that toe.
