- Where the selas blooms
I understand completely about not being able to sell your own work as well as your kids can. It's difficult to sell your own work; you're too involved in it and it's difficult to put yourself forward enough to close the deal. I used to do a juried show and always sold better when I had someone else there. It got to the point where all I did was come in, set everything up the way I wanted it and then sit back and let the now-ex-boyfriend do the selling. He was good for that, if not much else, lol! It worked well, and I'd come close to selling out on the first night, which was a wine and cheese thingy by invitation only. I also found out that if I put higher prices on my little ladies they sold better! Go figure. From that I learned that most people put value on something according to the price.
