Skype Sales

7:55 AM

Some day, I'm going to sell art somewhere. This blog has been the beginning of the long process towards me doing something with it...Baby steps! This week my friends were urging me to sign up for a local craft fair and get a booth where I could sell some of my art. I've been working on a lot of projects lately and it seems like a cool idea to generate interest and make a few sales...but there's a catch. It would mean that I have to stand at my booth all day, trying to get people to buy my stuff. Yikes! That makes me so nervous. It feels like I'd be trying to sell myself. I don't know if I can do it. (No offense to anyone I may see at my booth some day - I'm sure we'll have a delightful conversation.)

But then my friends and I had a great idea - I should just set up a laptop with skype at my booth and I could talk to my customers from the comfort of my own home! That way, I could sell my art without having to actually interact with humans! Maybe it would generate mystique about me if no one ever met me - I'd be like the Banksy of the craft fair industry! I'm kidding, of course, but I thought the idea was so funny that I wanted to draw it so I wouldn't forget.
