In the past Wendy has told me that I put out too much, disjointed merchandise. Then I spent the winter reading about the juries for higher end shows. Then I panicked. Wendy is right, a booth that resembles a flea market with a glass theme is not the way to go. So I've spent the last few months focused on 4 themes:
1) Paint with frit - general
2) Paint with frit - garden
4) pattern bars
Within these themes I have everything from wine racks to glass blocks and enough to fill my booth at a non-flea market density. The booth will look cohesive and upscale (yea, new wood shelves). But will I sell less because I don't have EVERYTHING out? Sales guides say I'm doing the right thing. Juries say I'm doing the right thing. Wendy says I'm doing the right thing. Intellectually I believe I'm doing the right thing. But what about the customers? Will they buy?
If the weather is good and sales are bad do I go back to the flea-market? I guess I'll have to sort it out on Sunday.
