I chose to display my most recent work; the Talisman and Adornment Series wall hangings. Below you'll see my booth, and the Inspiration: Wax-Print Cloth bamboo bowls featured on one panel.

However, I did gain some new collectors, and several pieces have now found new homes.
To end the show, we had two "firsts" as we were packing up to leave: 1. A new collector came by to purchase another piece which she'd had her eye on the first day. Since it was already packed up, I had to pull it out of its packaging, whip out my Square, and make the sale. Thanks, Phyllis!
2. While I was making this final transaction, Stan was breaking down the tent. He stepped outside the walls to loosen a bolt on the tent bars, and when he went inside again about a minute later, he found a woman sitting on the grass in the center of the paneled area, breastfeeding her baby! We thought we'd seen/heard it all before. Perhaps now? But no, after I posted this incident on an art fair Facebook page, I read an even wilder tale of an artist's tent which had been used for a clandestine tryst (after hours, thankfully). I think that trumps our story!
Looking forward to a bit of downtime before the African American Cultural Festival at the end of next month. I'll be doing a custom order generated from Eno, and a few new pieces, too. Photos to come....
