Day Two is now complete and I've been having a blast! I meant to post an update yesterday, but we didn't get home until midnight and then I spent the next two hours reprinting prints we had run out of!
I have to admit, I was pretty nervous about having a booth. Part of me expected to sit there all day, lonely and with no one purchasing anything. Both to my surprise, and to my great delight, we've been fairly busy! After two days, we've made back the booth cost! I can't possibly tell you how much this means to me (though, monetarily, it means just over $400 haha).
The first canvas I sold was Dipper and Mabel. The young boy who's father purchased Dipper and Mabel made my day. The little boy turned the corner to our booth and FROZE when he saw the canvas. His dad tried to convince him that it was only Thursday, and that they had the rest of the convention to purchase things, and that he would be spending all of his money on one thing, but he just wanted that painting. It was so sweet, and it really REALLY meant a lot to me when he said that was the only thing he wanted. He told me he was going to hang it in his room! So, thank you, little dude, for loving my painting. And thank you, little dude's father, for seeing the value in my painting. You guys made my day. <3
Thank you for all the love and support!
Hope to see you at the convention!
