Spring Market

Well, I survived the Spring Market. Thanks largely to the good company of good friends who managed to put up with me for an entire day-and-a-half.

Even with no drinking involved.

Now that it’s over, I’ve been just kicking back, mentally decorating the Alys Beach retreat I plan to buy with my profits.

Maybe this one. Although a three bedroom seems so … economy class.

Okay, perhaps not.

I did make some money. But I had a very full car on the way home. Lots of people exclaimed over our merchandise only to buy … none of it.

Even so, I found the event to be very productive as market research, so I know what to focus on down the road.

The Tulsa Destination Blinds were big hits.

My friend Neil made the fridge magnets and these beautiful paper wreaths.

Neil’s sister Amanda came up with these lost sock boards which are a stroke of genius in my book. I also sold quite a few GooRoos but didn’t get a frontal picture of their display (the bassinet in the photo below).

I also got a few hits on people interested in custom vinyl.

All in all, it was nice show. I’m not sure how much I would have to have sold to be “thrilled,” but apparently, I need the affirmation of my creative spawn flying off the shelves to feel fully legitimated.

I guess I’m just needy that way.
