Sorry for my absence. I was suffering from technical difficulties. It was tragic. I'm bakk now though with good news to report.
I went vending at Mount Pleasant Missionary Baptist Church on Saturday w/ the mommy. I've sat at many a table in the past, but this was my first time vending alone. I usually team up with someone else. It was my first time paying to vend. It was also, by far, my best experience thus far. So much so, that I'm actually looking forward to doing another event.
I woke up the morning of, only to realize that I had yet to sign any of my pieces. I did that and took this picture: I LOVE IT!!! Then I also had the grand idea that I would take some paint with me and paint on site. I'm not too keen on people watching me paint. I find it distracting, but I thought it would be cool, plus I figured I could probably knokk out a few pieces if anybody wanted something on the spot. It turned out to be a good decision b/c it also resulted in my first sale! She said she needed something soon and I was all too pleased to say you can stop bakk by the table and pikk it up before you go. Here's what I knokked out:
Oh, and I also displayed and sold some of my new gift items. These were a big hit: Infant washcloths wrapped like a lollipop on a spoon. I've been trying to replicate this on a onesie, but I'll refrain from discussing that tragedy. Lol.
All in all my product was well received. So, now I'm just waiting to see if anybody else contacts me.
