As my biggest selling event of the summer approaches I have had some thoughts on selling.
Some items you make to sell
like these seascape brooches last summer, or these bags now with new owners,(I have more!)
or a small Celtic panel which long ago went to a new home.
And you are happy when you have sold them.
Other items you make, and you like them and want to keep them, especially when they are the 'First' of a new series,
and although you have people who want to buy, no amount of persuasion will make you part with them.
There are others you don't really think about, put a high price on them, and in the blink of an eye, they've gone. (Apologies for showing this yet again, but it fits here)
And thats Ok. Its good in fact.
Except that 'data protection' won't tell you who bought it!
But there are those you made and sold without thinking
like this mostly hand stitched Celtic Panel,which was the one out of all the 15 I made that I liked best;
or this Fifties style piece. Again, I made a lot, but this was my favourite.
Even though you sold them to lovely appreciative people,and you know they will treasure them, you really wish you hadn’t.
Of course,there are also things you make to sell..and you just can't shift them at any price!
