I got absolutely saturated setting my stall up during the early hours of this morning. Thankfully the rain did stop by the afternoon. It felt like there weren’t as many people at the market today.
My first sale was a small original painting of a wombat with helpful lady bugs. It’s similar to this one, below.
Parents and their son, from Allandale, NSW, http://www.australias.guide/nsw/location/allandale/ purchased an “Emu Boogie” greeting card for their son’s piano teacher and a large “Salamanca Saturdays” tote bag for themselves.
Parents and their adult daughter stopped at the stall. The daughter really liked the original titled, “Holding Hands”. They left and the father came back and bought it to give to her for her upcoming birthday. Later in the day, a lady who been eyeing the same painting, came back to buy it and was disappointed to discover it had sold.
A mother and daughter, from Poland, bought “The Three Amigos II” and a “Suspended” print. The kookaburra print is going back to Poland but Suspended is going with the daughter to New Zealand where she has done one year of high school. She’s going to do one more year of high school and then start her university degree in New Zealand.
A son and mother purchased A-3 sized prints of “Enchanted Forest I” and “Enchanted Forest II” for their renovated house in Newcastle, NSW.
A young lady, who has just moved to Hobart to start her university degree in media and marketing, bought “Lost Worlds” and “Poppy Fields” to brighten her room in her share house.
“Piggyback” is going to the Central Coast, NSW, and a “Hanging Out” tote bag’s destination is going further than NSW. It is a gift for the person taking care of their house in Texas, USA while they are holidaying and travelling the world.
It was good to get home, hang up the wet things and have a hot, slow-cooked, curry dinner.
