...made it painfully clear that flea markets, or at least that particular market is not the correct venue for me. I only made one sale in the three and a half hours I sat there. Everyone wanted to look at junky antiques and bootleg DVDs but not the items I painstakingly spent hours creating. It was very discouraging. The wind also ruined my displays and the rain earlier in the day kept most customers away but left plenty of puddles for my displays to be blown into.
The whole day would have felt like a waste, but fortunately I met a very nice young woman up from Colorado and her father, we had a nice chat and they were my only sale. I think the renaissance faire/celtic fest/craft fair circuit will yield better results. I did have the distinction of having the prettiest table at the market.
I finished a few more pieces this week that there will be pictures of soon.
I'll also likely list a few more things on Etsy.
