Business improved even more at the WPB show last weekend. Most individual sales were small, (I define "small" as a single transaction under $ 500.00), but the trend is a good one in that there are more and more individual transactions occurring. People seem to continue to loosen the purse strings little by little. Cash is flowing.
That's what our little art market needs, public spending (on unecessary items). The show was much busier than it has been recently, attendance was strong.
There is, however, a lot of empty time as we wait for someone to take an interest in art at these antique shows we attend. I mean, we are there usually from 9 to 5.
So, to eliminate personal boredom and to try to stay sane, I read books.
My friend, Peggy, gave me a great one last weekend in WPB and I can't put it down.
It's called Water For Elephants.
