Last Art Show of the Season


Eiteljorg Museum In Indianapolis, IN



This is the last show of the year and I'm glad because I seem to have less and less energy and enthusiasm for some of these shows. The attendence was low because some type of basketball playoff going on the same day, so people were at pre-game parties and tailgating parties all afternoon. I should have packed it up and crashed one of those parties.

I did have a few sales and meet some really wonderful people. Let me tell you that it is a small world! I meet a couple at the this art show in Indianapolis, who live not to far from me in the greater Cincinnati area. They just happened to stop in at the museum to kill some time before the woman was flying out to visit some friends in New Mexico. Come to find out that she knows quite a bit about the small town I came from in New Mexico. At one time they were looking to purchase a house there, but decided against it. It was really cool!

Dommage pour l'achalandage a ton exposition, je suis moi même dans la même situation a Montréal Q.C.
pas beaucoup de visiteur, mais de belle rencontre.
Passe de Joyeuse Fête...

Shows with low attendance are frustrating - glad you did have some sales.

I wish I could have been there--I would love to see all of your art like this in person!
Shows are definitely not like they once were...

I know exactly how you were feeling! I did 4 shows this year and 2 were a bust. By the time the last one rolled around, I, too had lost my enthusiasm. Happily, my last show came thru for me. And I'm still making sales because of it, so don't get discouraged. Like Paula said, your online sales could (WILL) increase! Keep your head up, keep making FANTASTIC dolls and have an excellent Christmas!!

It must be discourage to have low attendance...so the fact that you did make some sales helps a bit! Time to enjoy the quiet of the season!!!
