This Saturday, I'm participating in my very first ever art sale. Yikes! In my preparations, our living room is officially...
Staging Area # 1
Bags of clothing, home goods, a lamp, and a borrowed card table...
Today, I added more mayhem to...
Staging Area #1
...two 6' industrial strength folding tables (only $49.99 at Costco!)
...and started assembling my necessities (clockwise from the top right):
Original collage pieces (signed, dated, cellophaned)
Velvet giclee prints (signed, dated, cellophaned)
Cash for change
Marker, pen, box cutter, tape, price tags
Soon-to-be trimmed bookmarks for promotion
My 2010 Journal book
What you can't see is what I haven't done: set it all up. The tables will be set up Doodlebugheart style: covered with antique table cloths and propped up chalk boards (see Home Depot reference above -- only $9 each!). I'll glue down the bulldog clips so I can easily attach prints and originals for display. On the side, I'll set up our vintage-esque metal ladder with framed prints and my 2010 Journal book.
I'm anxious about all of this -- this is my first show! And even though my friend suggested not to expect anything, to simply go "for the experience", let's face it. I am hoping.... just a little... for some sales.
If you're in the area, stop by! I'd love to see a friendly face. (If you mention this blog, I'll give you $5 discount!)
