... and now i have an idea ... better thought out than most of my ideas .....

and my big idea now .... is to have another blog contest .....
mostly, just because i liked the last one ....
but partly because i PASSED my 200th posting without even NOTICING ... how can that be?
ImageChef.com - Custom comment codes for MySpace, Hi5, Friendster and more
so ....
the history:
a few weeks ago i did the norcross art show and sold fewer than 20 prints ....in 2 days ..... i was happy to sell any ..... so the fifteen or 18 or so felt great ..... i really don't know how many i sold .... more than 10, fewer than 20 .....
then, last weekend ...... at a one day art market, i sold 28 prints .....
so .... why did i sell more at a shorter event?
i don't know ... and i have some hypotheses, but, too dull probably for anyone but MOI .....
so.....
this weekend, the show is SHORTER still ..... just six hours long i think ..... and it is a market .... and i think MOST vendors there won't be artist booths .... does that give me a better shot or a worse shot of selling as many as last time ... as many as the time before? ... fewer than that? or could i even break 30? well, at this point who knows ...... that's the contest .... making your educated guess ....
the only variable i haven't discussed is that this show is at MY church .... across the street from MY house ... at MY kids' school .... so... chances are good that i'll know a few people there!! mabye even everyone ...ha! ......does that hurt my selling or help? again.... we can't know ....yet .... and that's why we are having this little blog contest .....

so ....
Glitter Text custom comment codes for MySpace, Hi5, Friendster and more - ImageChef.com
guess ....
comment on this post .... with a number.... and your contact info if your name isn't a link (or if i don't know you already!)
the person with the closest guess will win any one of my original art prints ....personalized .....
and heidi, you won last time, but you can STILL guess again .... you could personalize the print and give it as a gift if you are lucky enough to win again .....

sign up with your guess before saturday at 3 ..... good luck .... cross your fingers ... be optimistic ..... happy trails .....

ps... ok .... here's the ps:
Photo Sharing and Video Hosting at Photobucket
after posting i went to heidi's blog and found she was having a contest and that there is this whole blogarama thing going on... all sponsored by rocks in my dryer .... so sure, sign me up ...... i'm part of the blog contest FEST now ... groovy-toovy, huh?

Meldrims said...

Brandi said...

I'm guessing 103.

Marie said...

I think you actually have a better chance of selling more at the shorter show. People who are really interested in art are more likely to come in concentrated groups rather than random people rambling in just to spend a pleasant day. Also, as you said, there will be people that actually know you, who will be worried about upseting you if they don't buy something. Add to that the contacts you will be making for future sales, and possible commissioned work. Good luck!

Laane said...
