Back from the market!

Whew, what a day! After a week of stressing over the Saturday Market, I finally made it! I was so nervous about it this morning for some reason, but as soon as I got there and got everything set up it was actually really fun!! The weather was perfect, there was a good crowd and I really enjoyed it.

I sold several things, which is good! I was hoping that some of the bigger priced items would sell, but I mostly sold cards, unframed prints and a few smaller framed pieces. I'm happy with that though, it was a really good learning experience for me and when I do it again I'm going to know more of what to expect.

I saw a few people I know, which was fun, and I had one SUPER nice lady come over and mention that she read about me in Boise Weekly and she stopped to chat for a bit. Even though I didn't sell a ton it was a really fun, successful day. I'm not used to displaying my photos in public, so it was kind of an interesting experience. It was kind of neat to see people come by and look at them. Lots of little boys wanted to stop to look at my Thomas train silhouette and lots of men stopped by to look at the guitars!

So all in all it was a really good day and I'm glad that I did it. I will probably have more opportunites to do it again in the future and I look forward to it!

But for now I think I'm going to put my photos in the spare room, close the door and spend a few days thinking about anything BUT my photos!! It was a good day, but I'm ready to focus on something else for a while. You never know what's going to happen around here next! :)
