Usually, Easter long weekend is a busy market day and this year was no exception, especially when it comes with ideal market weather.
My first customer was a young man from Queensland. He bought a “Garden Roses” and “Sitting on the Fence” print.
A Melbournian couple, visiting a family member living in Tasmania, purchased a “Bunk Beds” print.
I had an 11-year-old peruse the stall and then he went and got his family. He bought a “Silent Disco” print with his own money (I gave him a hefty discount).
A young couple from Sydney bought a “Lovebirds” print and another couple from Sydney purchased a small original sitting wombat painting. They also purchased a “Hanging Out” and “The Three Amigos” print. One is going to the UK. She hadn’t decided which one of the two she was going to keep.
Another original painting of a wombat, this one with a flower, is heading to the Central Coast, NSW.
An original painting of Collingwood AFL emu supporters is going to New York, USA. I’m not sure if they picked up on the football theme. There were a lot of people in the stall when they were making the purchase and I didn’t realise that they were American until they told me it was going back to New York with them as they were leaving the stall.
Somebody came into the stall and asked if I had any prints with a frog and were very happy to see “Kiss Me Please”. A lady who overheard this question said she’ll give it a try and asked if I had a print of a bat. Unfortunately, not. I can’t imagine that a painting of a bat would appeal to many people (lol). I’m glad that bats have fans though. Every animal is important.
The new greeting card “Buddy Pals” went quickly along with prints, originals, tote bags and pouches. It was a hectic day and full-on trying to keep up with the restocking and serving customers.
Wishing everybody a lovely Easter.
