So, we're finally getting around to some pictures from this past weekend's festival.
It was the first real art fest we have done and for a first I think it went pretty well.
I took the advice of a fellow local artist that this was a good newbie event and it was...not too crazy busy, but enough to make back my booth fee plus some. They offered a higher price booth that included the tent, peg board, table and chairs...which was excellent for us since we don't have those things yet.
We also took advice from the same person (thank you Erin) on accepting credit cards and signed up for an online credit processing account and got ourselves an old-school knuckle buster to imprint cards. This was a good idea which did lead to a few more sales.
Of course our only problem was the oppressive HEAT. We are talking 90+ degrees of humid, stagnant heat all.day.long. We both guzzled water by the gallon, but ended up with headaches and were exhausted by the end of the day...but it was still a great experience despite the GA heatwave.
Here are a few photos from the event...taken by none other than the talented Mr. Shearer of Gonzoriffic fame. Thanks Andy!
We have a few more pics of the entire set up taken by the Mister and we'll probably share those soon as well.
In the flurry of work leading up to the festival, we completed a few new pieces that went up in the All Night Diner shop last night and one that will be going into the Percilla shop soon! Alas, we did not photograph the cute mini pac-man family we did before it sold, but we'll be making more as soon as our order of hoops arrive.
