That's how it works. I've now invested hundreds in setting up my portable store. At least I don't have to rent a venue to sell, but I have thus far purchased a portable table, a stool, a folding handcart, matte frames, art sleeves, prints, clips, art business cards, and so on, and I am ready to go. Tomorrow will mark my first day of selling my art out for the day! Look out for me on Bedford Ave. in Williamsburg. I'll be in the vicinity of N. 3rd St.
Or, you can buy from me online.
I'm finally really setting out to make real money pursuing what I love!
