It pays the rent

I am fortunate to be able to also offer up my art pieces in my antique shop booth as well as furniture and smalls. In fact, my art is what is paying the bills. Literally. A couple of weeks ago, the owner called me and said that there was a lady in the shop who wanted to know if I could make 25 of these. SURE! They would pay for 4 months of my rent. After I hung up, I danced a little jig. Don't get excited. I'm sure that I looked like Elaine from that Seinfeld episode.

Congrats, now that's cool! I love your art and I can see why she does too!

I've thought about this for a long time, but I'm not as "creative" as most of y'all. I'd have to make thousands to cover my GIGANTIC rent. Sounds like she wants you to wholesale! Keep going.

Smalls are DEFINITELY carrying the day/month/year. YAY to you for making it work!

What great news! Not only does it pay the rent, but it's a huge compliment to your art. Doesn't get better than that.
