Marketing my product

This past week I set up my Etsy shop https://www.etsy.com/ca/shop/JeanCockburn

Today I took fifteen note cards printed from my watercolour sketches into Abraxas Books.

I checked into the Denman Craft Shop and found that a number of the items that I had in the shop sold over the summer. I added to my offerings two more crochet covered rocks (two had sold and one was left on the shelf), my Rose Garden quilt for $350.00 and my Garden Fantasy: Blossoms wall hanging for $325.00.

Then I visited Pelka for tea in the afternoon and we talked about how our art show went (very well!!), and where do we go from here, about artistic process, about marketing, about our upcoming classes at North Island College - and the sea, sun and birds were exceptionally beautiful - a great day!
