Craft & Draft – all done!

The Craft and Draft Holiday Bazaar was a great learning experience and networking event for me. Things I learned today:

  1. Make prices easy to read. Keep it simple. Less is more. I can get a little carried away with borders and dollar signs and such. Price tags are not another art form!
  2. Stuff that people can touch with their hands sells quicker – the pins and magnets were a hit! Anything packaged, framed, or otherwise not super accessible is more likely to be ignored. At least for a “grab & go” shopping experience at a busy holiday bazaar.
  3. Bring more cash change. Cards aren’t always the preferred method. Again, with a “grab & go” shopping mentality, cash is king. Next time I’ll be prepared.

I will be listing the pocket mirrors, new magnets & pins, and all original prints on Etsy. I have an old account that needs quite a bit of freshening. What better way to start the New Year with a spruced up online shop?

Now that this show is over, I’m looking forward to a little relaxing, tea, and sending off christmas cards to all my friends and family. I have one illustration commission to finish up this week – and then it’s the official holiday season/break for me!
