So after another month of poor First Friday sales I'm thinking about packing it in. The competition for spot has pushed me into a different location and the crowd is noticeable different. I get less conversations, less sales, and more people just commenting on my stuff as they pass by. I'm making 1/4 of what I did last year at double the effort. On top of that, the location is going to start charging to sell. I'm going to give it one more month and see if things pick up, but after that I might be done.
That's fine. I'e been wanting to focus more on my own projects and been getting tired of remaking the same objects over and over. Plus there's always Etsy to work on.
