Kollision Con was last weekend, and I had an Artist Alley table for the first time. I spend months preparing for this convention. Before this year, I'd never been to Kollision Con.
I knew that it was the second year for the convention, so I expected it to be small. I also figured, that since this was an Anime Convention, loads of people would just go nuts over my jewelry, so I made a TON of it! I had hundreds of items ready to sell.
Sadly I overestimated how much I'd sell. I was disappointed at the low sales for my first event. I spent many nights staying up late, working on jewelry for this convention, and it was kind of a bust. I still have at least 300 items left. The good news is, I won't have to kill myself making stuff for the indoor craft show I have in January.
The plus side to Kollision Con, is that lots of people had a chance to see my work, take some cards, and become fans of my store's Facebook Page. I have a couple of people interested in custom orders too. You have to start somewhere right?
I didn't bring my camera, but I was able to snap a few pictures with my phone.
