Saturday evening I loaded up my car and drove out to East Lancaster to the Antelope Valley Indian Museum. The AVIM is way out in the middle of nowhere but the drive isn’t too far from town. About 15 miles.
Once I arrived, I pulled in behind the Joshua cottage and unloaded my stuff carrying it inside. I’ve done this event I think three times before, and the lady who runs it knows I like being by the door. She stuck a post it now on the table she knew I’d pick with my name on it. Nobody else got a reserved table… Lol.
I got set up, and my table was so cluttered but I was hopeful it would be okay.
As you can see, it was kind of a mess.
The first hour, we had almost no one come through. I got the first sale though of two face scrubbies at $3 each. And then there was nothing for a while.
I think we were all feeling a little let down by how slow it was, but going into the second hour, it got really busy and people started buying.
I had set prices on all my items except the stuffed toys and the paintings, which I told people I was open to offers. I didn’t really expect anyone to want the paintings; I had nearly left them at home.
I was happily surprised though when people loved my paintings! I ended up selling 2 of the 3. Not for a lot but they didn’t take a lot of time to make either and costs were super low.
All in all, I sold a little of everything except for earrings. It was a really good night, and I made enough over my table fee to pay off a small bill in full, and in the next few days I’ll replace one of my tires on my car.
