As the summer Buyers Market drew to a close on Monday, August 3, there was a great deal of optimism from artists and retailers alike. Though gallery owners and craft buyers were still cautious, they reported that sales were picking up in their stores. Time to place their orders!
Exhibitors were not only making their costs, many were exceeding their own expectations. Pam Corwin of Paper Scissors Rock reported that it was her “best summer show ever” and picked up 13 new accounts! Several of the artists we’ve spoken to since have continued to get orders over the phone.
