So it’s the day of the local Christmas fair in town. Woke early and no good morning Swanage pics from hope as it was still dark. In town around 8 am.
So I went round to the shop and got set up inc art for fun space in case
Nothing got going really until 10. One commission client came and collected their piece. Most of todays sales were cards. Art for fun went better than expected with 8 boxes sold and drawn on – reached and went past 200 participants and the young lady no. 200 got £10 to spend on art and chose an original,postcard plus a Christmas card and a selection of postcards.
Chests were the most popular item to colour in with 7 done.
Visit from Charlie, Rob and Bentley saw yesterdays Autumn original postcard sold.
People asking about the postcard this afternoon were told – sold already. Another piece of good news was about the Christmas card design I did for Swanage RNLI shop – they had 2000 cards printed and have sold out.
Later this afternoon I drew another original,postcard to distract myself as the weather cooled.
At five I packed up after being there for about 9 hours with help from Anne. We saw a lot of friends, return visitors and people finding he shop for the first time. I hope that in the remaining week before Christmas that some prints and original art can sell too.<div class='sharedaddy sd-block sd-like jetpack-likes-widget-wrapper jetpack-likes-widget-unloaded' id='like-post-wrapper-123416164-6931-6381dcfb2cbd5' data-src='https://widgets.wp.com/likes/#blog_id=123416164&post_id=6931&origin=andyknillart.com&obj_id=123416164-6931-6381dcfb2cbd5' data-name='like-post-frame-123416164-6931-6381dcfb2cbd5' data-title='Like or Reblog'><h3 class="sd-title">Like this:</h3><div class='likes-widget-placeholder post-likes-widget-placeholder' style='height: 55px;'><span class='button'><span>Like</span></span> <span class="loading">Loading...</span></div><span class='sd-text-color'></span><a class='sd-link-color'></a></div>
