Lessons Learned : Oddmall

This weekend was my very first event as a vendor. I learned a lot and have things that I can approve one.
First off, I had a lot of fun.  Sunday was better than Saturday.  Not necessarily because of sales, but people were more talkative and actually asked questions.  I am more than willing to talk about the art all day long.
Stock:  I do not have to bring nearly as much as I did.  Three or for prints and cards of each design is plenty.  This will lighten the load and everything should fit in a rolling suitcase or something similar.  Maybe I should try to get one of those crates on wheels.
I also learned that there is never enough table space.  I was so sure that I would not have enough stuff to fill the table.  Hahahaha… Boy was I wrong.  I could have used another 2 feet of table.
I was grateful for the lulls in traffic.  Making sure I ate and drank appropriate amounts was important and having restroom breaks was handy.  Oddmall offered booth sitters, but I found that they never seemed to be around when I needed them.  I had great people on either side of my booth.  We watched over each others things during quick breaks.
I look forward to doing more events.  I cannot wait to learn about the challenges of doing outdoor events.  I already anticipate sunburns and things trying to blow away.
There is only going forward now 🙂
