It’s the first time ever that I decided to take the plunge and take my work outside Bangalore, my comfort zone.
It was a late decision, I had a few dozen things in stock that I had made for a bazaar but for some reason I could not attend it. Plus I was super excited about doing what I truly enjoy, the larger, much bigger stained glass door panels. But then I wanted my work to travel and I chose Mumbai and Kala Ghoda Arts Festival.
The day I went for the interview with my products, the love, warmth and confidence I received that day is unforgettable, the panel was waiting for me, they had seen my website and were welcoming and warm, at the end of the interview the products that I took with me were purchased by a panel member.
The event itself was overwhelming and 1400 plus handmade stained glass products that we made were sold out one day before the last day of the exhibition.
All this and the final sell out would not have been happened without our friends and family, it would have been an impossible task altogether.
The photographs below say it all that happened on Saturday 11th February 2017 at my stall.
I made 600 birds and I am overwhelmed, not just by the sale, by the re-re-re sale to the people who kept coming back twice/thrice to buy more to gift their family and friends 🙂
