Disappointed and Considering

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,

You are the best photographer I know and like every great artist before you it takes time for the rest of the world to recognize it sometimes. Keep plugging & promoting and I promise you it will happen!!!
I am emailing you a list of links to promte your url for free and next time we talk I'm going to get you the information for the ad sales guy at wickedlocal I met with Tuesday. It may be a good venue for you to consider as well.
KEEP THE FAITH!!! I love you and your work :) ~ Jenn
