When I signed up for Aki Con my goal was to make back my table costs. I had a number of items for sale that I had made for the Pratt Fine Arts Center’s annual Holiday Sale. I made extra owl pins and sugar skulls. I thought I’d sell a few of these and then replace them in time for the sale.
Sales at Aki Con were much better than I had anticipated, I have almost no stock left and now I really need to get my butt in gear if I’m to have enough to cover the week long Pratt Holiday Sale. It’s all good though and an unexpected surprise.
And the very best thing that happened? This wonderful woman bought my squid and made it a part of her gothic Lolita outfit! It looked amazing perched on her shoulder with his tentacles wrapped around her arm and neck! I was so thrilled when she came by to show me!
