I just got back home after traveling to do the Long’s Park show in
Lancaster, PA. It was one of my best shows ever, though the 700-mile
drive and food and lodging have to be taken into account. Also, it
is a 4-full-day show-- very tiring.
It was a relief to be at a show where people just bought stuff–
especially on Saturday. The way you hope it will be. My work is not
for everyone, and it is always a struggle.
On getting back and doing my “post-mortum” analysis of what sold on
what day, etc, I see that still, half my sales were under $100, and
only one over $600. I didn’t sell any of my sculptural, mixed-media
pieces, which range from $400 to $8000. So the question is, those of
you who sell a mix of more elaborate one-offs and simpler pieces,
where do the “better” pieces sell? And who do I have to kill to be
able to show there?
These are the pieces I really want to make-- ones such as are in my
Orchid Gallery pages (http://www.ganoksin.com/orchid/noel.htm). I
have to figure out where they will sell, not just get lots of oos
I have been urged by a member of the staff at BMAC to give them a
try. Does one-off work go there, or would I only sell my low-end
production pieces I don’t really want to make?
