Let The Madness Begin!
As you can see by Frosty to the left, I've been working on some Christmas/winter related paintings. If I can get Zazzle to cooperate, they will end up as greeting cards, however, as of today the website is being very persnickety and it's making me nervous. I'd love to know if any of you use a different site or method to print greeting cards with your art featured on it. I'm ready to jump ship on Zazzle.
Our church is hosting a Christmas Gift Bazaar the first weekend in December and I've signed up to set up shop and sell my art. This will be my first experience offering art for sale in a live public format and my head is spinning. I would also love to hear from any of you who have done this sort of "gig". What do you find sells best (smaller sizes)? Do you sell greeting cards in packs or single lots? Do you paint while sitting at your table? How do you set yourself up....do you frame a bunch of pieces or just place them in sleeves (matted or unmatted?) I know....lots of questions, so little time. I'm just curious and want to be prepared for whatever I may encounter. I just hope I sell enough to pay for my $30.00 fee. (Although, that $30.00 will go to a local charity in the end....so it's all good.)
