Yesterday we (MichaelA and myself) Had our booth set up in Rockport for market days. This was our 4th show in 8 months. We did really well at the first 3. The bad news is we sold absolutely nothing yesterday. The good is the attention that Michaels’ Octopus and shark carving got! We placed it in the front corner of the tent. This thing truly is a monster! It takes both of us to pick it up. It’s 38 inches tall and 48 inches at the widest point of the bottom. I would say that 90 % of the people who passed by stopped and stared at it. I can not count the number of wows, oohs and ahhs it got. All the children were mesmerized and couldn’t help but touch it as well as alot of adults. It was a conversation piece with everyone asking questions about it. I believe it stole the show and as wonderful as all the complements were, hindered our sales as all eyes were on that one piece. If we would have charged admission we would have done well. Note to self…..maybe at the next show we should put it in the back of the tent, after all the first rule of business is… Location,location, location.
