Hey everyone! Hope you all had as good a First Friday as I did!
For those in and around Portland, Maine, I’m sure you know what First Friday is! But I’ll explain it a bit for those outside the area and for those who have yet to try it out!
The full name of the event is “First Friday Art Walk.” It’s held the first Friday of each month in the Arts District of downtown Portland, Maine. From 5pm to whenever people decide to go home, all of the art galleries are open and offering free snacks and wine. The artists of the works are usually there in the galleries as well. So you get to talk to the person behind the art!
There are also vendors lining the streets (when it’s not freezing or raining) selling their art and handmade things. Sometimes there are people dancing, fire juggling, or playing music. And especially during the warmer months, there are tons of people out participating in this event!
The city really comes alive!
What was I doing during this event? I was selling my merchandise in the lobby of my school!
I got a lot of great feedback for my work, met a lot of cool people, sold some stuff, and had a great time! Thank you so much to all of you who came to my table! And thank you to Jamie Hogan who took this nice photo!
I realize I have to make more clothes because of my decrease in supply from sales. (This is a good thing!) So, I’ll be working on some new designs over the next few weeks and putting them on the clothing. Look for them in the coming weeks! It’s almost time for the Farmers Market!
