Music On The Square
Vendor events are quite scary to be a part of.
At least at first.
Music On The Square in New Philadelphia was my third vendor event in the last two years, and I had a great time.
But the initial fear was still there.
Until I met my vendor neighbor. His name was Joey.
He was friendly and I enjoyed talking with him, and he helped me relax.
Setting up was a fairly easy process this time.
I was running late initially, but was lucky enough to find a parking spot close to my vendor area so unloading was easy, and Joey was nice enough to help out.
Setup was easier this time around as well. I didn't bring everything with me.
By "everything" I mean the paintings I have hung up at the Artisans on Canal shop in Bolivar, OH.
My cars a bit too small to handle a 2' x 4' painting safely. 😅
But I still had plenty to show.
The event was from 3pm-10pm, so I took an old painting I had stuffed in my closet and worked on it to help the hours pass by.
I figured 7 hours would be enough to revamp this piece, but before the painting was even considered "done" a woman came up to me asking to buy it as was.
She didn't want me to do anything further to it, and I sold it to her for 25 dollars.
It's less than I would have initially asked, but she was happy to buy it and I was happy to see it finally find a home.
