In my last post I wrote about the upcoming Christmas Fayre at the Red House Cone in Stourbridge. I didn’t have any high expectations, but it turned out very well. There was a fair amount of people coming through on both days, and although I didn’t sell any big pieces, there was a steady trickle of smaller items, and in total we took just under £300. Considering the table fee was only £65, and we had no other expenses, I’d see this as a success. We met a good number of people who we knew, and some of them bought something, and there were a few new customers as well. One even tagged me in one of her posts on Instagram. Nice one!
And then it got even better. A relatively new acquaintance became really enamoured with some of my work, and then proceeded to spend £250 on two vases and a hollow form, and he’s now come back wanting to buy another hollow form for £160. So all in all, I’ve had an excellent week.
Plus, I am about to deliver my second 2-hour lesson to a new student. Hopefully this will last some time, It’s all coming together at the moment. I’ll enjoy it while it lasts, who knows how long that will be.
