Well, the July Art Walk was definitely fun and I'm so glad I did it with a friend. I think it takes a lot of the nervousness out of doing something new because you can encourage each other. And we definitely learned a lot about selling our crafts as well as hosting a physical space. We took notes and have already started discussing what we'll improve on for next month's event.
One of the best things I learn from hosting a physical space, is seeing what others touch and what they say about my items. I've had suggestions for wine cozies due to a woman's cooing over Longies and a washcloth mitten from a soap saver.
I always try to note what people purchase and what colors. I haven't been able to really find a pattern yet to predict what will sell, but at least I know what to make more of. This time: one yellow/white soap saver, one set of blue/green hot mits, and one grey and brown thick crocheted hat.

I've also learned what items' inventory I need to bulk up. Namely: hot mits, baby socks, coaster sets, and now No Scratch baby mittens (a new obsession thanks to Field Wonderful).

I also offered a free bracelete to anyone who mentioned seeing my posts on Facebook but I didn't have any takers. I did get one on Instagram, though! My cousin from Georgia will be getting a few in the mail in a few days. :)
So that what July's Art Walk. A fun time with good friends. We had many friends & family members stop out and support us which was GREATLY appreciated!
