RISD Spring Sale

May 03 2009

Just finished with the RISD Alumn Sale that was held this Sat, May 2 in Providence, RI.   With the economy being so bad, I wasn't sure if sales were going to be good, but man, the morning was a madhouse.  I did much better than I dare hope and exceeded last year's sales so that was great.   People were in a buying mood.   Weather was typical New England - cool and rainy in the morning, sunny and high 60's/low70's by mid-afternoon.    My mother and I joke that the RISD Spring sale, which is always held on the first Sat every May, the weather is either miserable cold, runny and in the 50's, or blistering hot in the 80's.  Today, the temps were perfect.    Saw many of my customers and quite a few friends, so that was great to reconnect with them.    Now, I have to hope I can get into the October alumni sale but I'll certainly be doing the Dec alumni sale.  I had a chance to introduce my welded nails bird sculptures at the RISD sale.
