Today was the Art in the Alley event in Casa Grande, AZ. It was my first time there and it was well worth my time. To my surprise there was a large crowd and a steady stream of people stopping by my table. A lot of compliments and lookie lou's. When I asked for feedback on what they thought and everyone loved the uniqueness of the pieces and the use of metals. One thing I heard was price was out of their budget but felt it was priced well because to the workmanship and creativeness. One story was particularly fun...a woman was looking for a wedding gift...come to find out it was for her partner. They have been together for 13 years and were heading to Hawaii to have a marriage ceremony. She was looking for a gift to give her partner on their wedding day. She had 2 favorites but decided on a beautiful red "LOVE" heart pendant. I asked her to please email me a photo once she gives it to her partner. What a honor to be part of something so special.
This Art in the Alley is something I need to continue to participate in. It's first Tuesday of each month from Sept-June. Along with the artist, there are food vendors, live music, activities for the kids and a great classic car show. There lots of men and a number of them came to chat about my jewelry. I think the use of metals intrigued them. I added earrings in this show and I'll have to say I'm so pleased with them, I could wear each one cuz I just love them. The other major bonus is the artists and women I met. Two in particular and I hope they follow up with an email to me.
I really need to get going on some kind of on-line shop, don't I?
