Whats next...

My next event is at the Mellwood Arts and Entertainment Center in Louisville, KY. My good friend and artist Robbie Moriarty has generously opened her space for me to sell my work on Friday April 23rd 5-8pm and Saturday the 24th. If you want more info I will be happy to send you a postcard with this image on it. Just email me at jse64art@sbcglobal.net be sure to leave your address.
I have been a busy artist who hasn't made any art. I have tired quickly of selling my vintage items online. I think the biggest problem for me is the shipping costs and the box issues. I hate guessing on etsy ....so how much will this 1 pound item cost to ship it to Washington State or Kentucky. Etsy desperately needs a shipping calculator. I have cheated myself out of money many times and then there are the sales out of the country. Which again I am complaining but you sell an item for $5- and then send it to France and it costs $18- to ship you are in and out of the post office and writing back and forth to the buyer for a profit of say $2 or 3 dollars. I just can't. So I have gotten a booth at Exit 76 Antique Mall and a case at Southport Antique Mall. I need some sort of steady money coming in. As soon as I move in April 1st I will post some photos here.
I have made some headway on our new place. The garage, basement and attic are basically organized thanks to hiring a strappy 16 year old who went from the basement to the 3rd floor walkup attic many many times. Once all my stuff is priced and taken to the antique mall it will eliminate the clutter in the house. But, as an artist there is always clutter somewhere.
Looking forward to the spring and my upcoming events. Missed blogging. Please let me know you have stopped by.

Hi Jenny! I'm here. Good to hear you're getting settled into your new digs and that Ed is feeling better. I saw your brother on TV this evening!

Non-sports fan that I am, I'm thrilled to see my alma mater is playing in the Final Four. I even went to the Butler bookstore today...hadn't been there since I graduated almost 30 years ago. Yikes! I was a good alum and bought some "stuff". Go Dawgs! Happy Easter!
