Yep. We spent another day at the beach, I really had intended on hitting shops in the 3rd town and of course, who really wants to go home from the coast?
So town 3. Not exactly what I had expected, pretty tourist-trap like; lots of shops with monogrammed shot glasses and whale sweatshirts. I found one shop with some very pretty art and home goods in it and when I approached the owner she said "I only do AUDITIONS."
Well I am very happy for her :).
I dropped samples in 2 other shops, mostly because I was there- and just as I was about to think staying another day meant going well over budget I found the coolest little gallery that loved (and loves) my work. Yes, galleries consign, (this one at %55 to the artist though) so I didn't get paid outright but she placed a large order and based on her location and the work in the gallery, I think I might have found the perfect fit.
I haven't heard from the other 4 shops (yet) but last night a retailer from elsewhere popped into my comments section and said she'd like to order. (yay)
So, 3 shops, 3 days, lots of blog posts, a trip to the beach, shoes full of sand, time spent with Miles and a ton of new photos.
I'd have to say, all in all, my adventure in wholesale land has been a blast, hope you enjoyed the read as well.
Happy Happy Saturday all!
