    Very innovative, never would've thought of this one myself.

    So people were genuinely interested or did you have to really sell it to them?

    How much did you sell the postcards for?

    Which sold better?

    Definitely doing this next year......my city annually has a huge July 4th festival, and people from all around come to visit it (in the tens of thousands). We have a lot of old landmark buildings nearby....so I could just take some nice pictures (or find them on the internet), then frame and sell. Better yet, just buy a stand at the taste of Chicago. :)

    Was this the Pickering Steam/Traction engine fair? i was there with a stall too, made a boat load with vinyl stickers.

    Also got to drive the hummer around the asault course, it was a good laugh!

    Were these pictures as big as a normal size piece of paper right out of your printer?
    I'm assuming you signed them yourself. When a customer asked if you painted them did you say yes? Or did you word it as.. "I crafted them, yes, took me hours ;)"

    Great post.

    You've given me an idea that could end up buying my house.

    Thanks

    I assume this only sold because of the "limited edition" advertisement and because it was a "steam fair". Theres tons of people selling framed pictures at every flea market and fair
    in the world and they sure ain't selling out and making that much in one day.
