Green Walk a blinding success!
Blinking blimey flip, I cannot BELIEVE how well I did over the weekend at Green Walk Arts festival. I sold 500, yes 500 cards!!!!!!
I couldn't keep up with the sales, it was like a rugby scrum. I'm soooo happy because I've spent nearly a year trying to get this off the ground, I've been ridiculously skint, confused, frustrated, really down at times, I've nearly given up 4 times and had a little blub more than a few occasions.
Then suddenly, like a little ray of sunshine it all just happened. Everybody loved my cards, some people bought 15 at a time (ok, they were also cheap!). The feedback was so positive that now I feel really confident to go for it and get another (expensive) print run done, then do a trade fair in autumn.
Here's a rubbish pic of me selling my wares on a coffee table. I had a flashback to when I was a little girl and I used to play shops on my grandma's coffee table with a little vintage tin full of coppers and lots of packets of tea from her cupboard. I think I just came full circle!!!
