This weekend a couple of us Pottery friends got together for a Summer Pottery Sale. We did this last year and it was a reasonable success, so we thought of giving it a shot again.
This time around we managed to sneak in a article in the News Tribune talking about the sale. http://blogs.thenewstribune.com/arts/2008/08/19/pots_pots_pots
This made a huge impact. Customers were lined up Friday morning and I would have to say that 80% of our sales were from people who read the paper. Advertising does help...duh!
The pots from all the artists were just wonderful. There was a great variety of high fire and mid fire work. Also great discounts on seconds.
I had a good response on my new slip decorated bowls. I have to now make more of them. Got to get busy.. latersss!
