out & about

Strike Two

The mini holiday con that took place on Sunday didn’t go as well as I hoped it would — I didn’t sell anything. Not even ONE piece. I have to admit, I was a bit hesitant about doing the show because it coincided with a women’s basketball game rather than just being an event on its own like it was last year. And I wasn’t sure if it was publicized well enough (it wasn’t). Plus sports and nerdy things don’t exactly go hand-in-hand. I’m almost certain that if it was a quidditch match, the turn-out would’ve been a lot better. The circumstances for the event left other vendors quite dry as well, so I at least know that I’m not the only one.

But still, I went into it being hopeful. That’s all you can really be when you put yourself out there: hopeful. So I’ll keep looking at other venues to further expose myself and my geeky baubles and hopefully find success somewhere. Until then, there’s always the internet!

Take a look at my Etsy store to see if there might be any pieces you’d like to get for the geek(s) in your life this holiday season. 🙂

Cheers,
Nina

  1. I’m about to start selling my artwork at conventions soon so I’m crossing my fingers as well. You’ll do better next time. :3 I think your jewelry is super pretty, maybe once I start selling things I can finally get one! ^^

  2. I’ve had markets like that, it’s really hard to not just want to give up on markets altogether after an experience like that. But you just need to find your niche market where people are there for exactly the things you make and it’ll all be worth it 🙂

  3. Oh, honey. I’m so sorry that it didn’t work out as you’d hoped. But hang in there! Your stuff is amazing and you’re such a uniquely talented soul. Let me know if there’s anything that I can do to help out.

  4. I’ve only done two craft fairs before and it’s tough. It takes guts to put yourself out there. It looks like your Etsy shop is doing alright! Let me know if you ever want to do a combined giveaway or something!
