This blog is not for the light-hearted or easily offended. If either one of those descriptions applies to you, i would suggest you start drinking before you read this blog. A sense of humor is suggested. If you don't have one that sucks for you … find one and get a life!
I really don’t want to 100% blame Kevin for me not having a post on Monday but it really was his fault. You see, some time ago he decided to start working from home on Saturdays (and some Sundays) and not go into work. What this meant was that we were sharing MY OFFICE (our office) and that’s all well and good because we do have two workstations.
BUT … we only have one chair. That’s because for the 13 years that we’ve lived in this house, he hasn’t really worked from home. So this past Sunday, after our workout and before we had to go to a funeral, Kevin worked in the office (sitting in my chair of course) while I painted. When he was done he said, “Lets do something” which really meant, “let’s watch the Duke game” (they got crushed) and I never got around to sitting in MY CHAIR and writing a blog post.
So if you have a problem, yell at him. Just saying …
Here’s news though. I’m considering renting a booth at the High Point Furniture Market to sell my artwork. Today (Monday) I’m going to see a booth and decide what to do. I did a bit of research and that means I have a lot of details to deal with.
Paint all the sides of the paintings black. I started this and I’m almost done but it’s terribly annoying.
Figure out how to hang said paintings.
Do I need to wire them for hanging?
How do I sell them? Do I need a credit card reader?
… or just take checks?
How do I make price tags?
How do I display 40 paintings in a 7×10 booth?
Do I need to make receipts?
A sign for my art?
I DON’T KNOW
Do I need insurance?
How do taxes work? Sales taxes I mean.
Do I have to ship stuff?
How do I drop off and bring in the art?
Do they bring in ladders? Do I?
See? THERE’S A LOT OF QUESTIONS.
Hopefully I’ll get some answers this afternoon and I shall let you know.
Have a great day.
