The weather was perfect, the crowd was HUGE, the sales were just...ok. It was still worthwhile, especially since it is such an easy, close show. Luke and I have set-up for this show down (we've been doing it for several years). I no longer stress about it and lose sleep the night before. Only one show left for the summer- the July Art Market on the 20th (same place and time).
I've been throwing around the idea of having a sale table. I've never offered a discount or sale section at a show before, but I'd really like to clean house before going on maternity leave (I will be 38 weeks at the time of the next show).
Anyone have any experience with this (sale sections at shows)? Does it go over well? Do you think it "cheapens" the work? Do people only buy "sale" items then? Any words of advice would be much appreciated!
