We produced 65 new mini pieces in the weeks leading up to the October First Saturday Arts Market. Nell posted some of them on Facebook the week prior to the market, and 9 of them sold. At least 3 more have been placed on hold for specific collectors. And of course we sold more at the market on Saturday. We continue to get requests to post the Whimsitecture art for sale online, and we’re working on that. The issue we have is being able to identify specific pieces. We don’t title them, but we’ll have to find a way for buyers to specify which piece they want to buy. We did try Etsy for quite a long time, but it just didn’t seem to be the right venue. Online marketplaces get to be too big. We seem to get lost in them. We want it to be quick and easy for our buyers. We’ll figure it out soon.
In three weeks, we’ll be back at First Saturday Arts Market in Houston.
We’ve been a bit preoccupied with life stuff, and finally took a look at our inventory. Since it’s a bit low, I’ve done a stack of sketches for Nell to work her color magic on, and I’m sure we’ll do more than this.
I’ve also started doing a few little ones separately, just for some additional variety. These are all 2 1/2″ x 3″, pen & ink and watercolor.
This is what they look like in a mini frame.
We’re looking forward to bringing our own brand of colorful fun back to the Market.
