When a Sale is not just a Sale
We were at the art show for four very long days, from noon until 11 every night. There were going to be lots of people there and compared to the past year we expected to do well at the show. Yet sometimes there are moments that make you so happy to be doing this for a living. To have it happen several times in one show is exceptional . Late on the first night we met them. They were the vision of hope,love, and the promise of a very bright future. They were infectious. They said they were getting married in the fall and loved our art but had never been able to buy art yet on their own. Over the course of the next few days they kept coming back, they brought their family to look at the piece they wanted, the family even came alone to look. Then on Saturday night very late they came back together hand in hand and with no one around sat down in our booth, heads together and made what for them was a big decision. They bought their first piece of art together and in the process reminded us of how we felt in those early days together when we also made those same first important decisions together as a couple.
