Here I am, back from the Punk rock Flea Market. a very cool event that attracts very cool people. So cool, in fact, that I immediately felt somewhat uncool. As a vendor, it was a wash. Folks said they liked my stuff. they were intrigued about the lotion bars and I sold a few, But mostly it was an observation opportunity. I thought the fabric jewelry would be a hit, especially at a low price. Not this time.
So, I continue to wonder if I should keep doing these fairs. Maybe try to only put out a few things next time. The journals people like, the lotion bars they are curious about. I know the eye pillow/hand warmers sell. We'll see.
But, i do have to say that the best part was that I had a goal - something to work toward. It gave me energy and inspired me. I need goals like that, otherwise I flounder and get distracted easily. Making stuff that other people like is hard - taste is so very subjective.
So, we shall see what comes next... until then
