In spite of that I managed to sell a piece, Be It Known To All..., a black and white woodcut of an early period printer.
It was bought by an early period enthusiast, so I'm pleased it went to a good home.
I followed a bit of advice from Maria Arango's excellent book, Art Festival Guide, and rematted and framed a few of my pieces to show them to better effect. I think my display was much improved. It's a learning process.
The bidding sheets are a necessary evil that can't be helped. I did make a little handmade sign explaining my Paleo-Mythos themed woodcuts, which I added later. I'll make something more permanent for the next time.
All in all a positive experience.
