My first art festival was a pretty nice success. I didn’t get a good location, so I didn’t have nearly the traffic many other booths had, but I didn’t let that stop me! I went out into the masses with business cards in hand – talking to the other artists and making some new connections. The good news was, nearly everyone who did come check out my booth seemed really intrigued and interested… and about half of them took business cards! A few people added their info for my mailing list. I got to brainstorm new ideas with folks more experienced than I on how to improve my booth next time. And I sold quite a few photo prints and some totem feathers. Overall I call that an awesome success for a first timer!
I’ll be posting many of the items that didn’t sell in my Etsy shop soon, including some one-of-a-kind earring sets and necklaces, so be on the lookout!
