It was very disheartening to find how few people bought my products at a recent church fair event. I barely sold enough to cover the cost of the booth, so basically made nothing. I now realize, this is not the proper venue for me.
Even though Etsy is slow, at least all shops there have handmade items or supplies to make handmade items. This church fair, sadly, allowed not only crafts but most tables with flee-market/yard sale type items. Attendees were looking for a bargain - not a decent piece of art to hang on their walls. So, a lesson has been learned.
I'm considering what to do going forward with all aspects of my life and work; once I figure it out I'll let you all know. For now, I'll keep plugging at what I've been doing, maybe try to find a job, and contemplate to answer to the bigger questions.
Peace to all,
