Well the Mini Auction and Fair has come and gone. Last week this time I was working like a raving lunatic trying to create some stock for sale. I managed to make about 60 items before I ran out of steam at around 2:30am Saturday morning. Set up was at 8am. Suffice to say I arrived late! LOL. No worries – didn’t have that much to set up anyway.
There were some incredible items up for auction this year – oh to be a millionaire! I behaved and didn’t spend any money which I didn’t have! I got the reserve price on all my submissions and managed to sell about half my stock. Came home with some orders too. So all in all it was a really good day business wise. Even better was the fact that I got to see friends I’ve not seen for ages!! Once a year really isn’t enough, but somehow none of us get to travel that much – I’m not just around the corner and don’t belong to the Guild anymore. I’ve been asked to do the miniature fair in September and I think I will. If I keep plugging away at stock I should have way more than the 60 items I had this time around! ROFL
Aside from that I’m working on getting pictures and prices up so I can start selling items via the Internet. I have a blog – not a website! Wonder if I’ll ever master that particular monster? I’m definitely technologically challenged.
