It isn't about making a sale

Well that's what I keep telling myself. Yes our club had it's first market stall on Easter Saturday. It was a success. We sold around 30 items in the four hours we were open for business. I only had three items I felt were good enough to sell. The other members involved had a lot more pieces up for sale and I was excited to see many of their creations get sold. Yes I did sell two of my three items. But they were purchased by people who knew me in the last minutes of the market. It's not the same as unknown people loving my work so much that they want to pay money for it and take it home. I think there will be another opportunity in three months time. I will have more quantity and more variety. It was a great experience to work together with the other members of the club to promote our club. I am disappointed I didn't properly sell anything. But as I told my cousin who travelled all the way here from Melbourne to compete in the drag racing last night only to drop out due to a radiator problem...there's always next time.

  1. The money is the same; a sale is a sale no matter the purchaser. I always feel honored when friends buy my work!
