Had a very nice Saturday playing shopkeeper - check out my wares -
I wasn't particularly organised, as though I started off noting down what I sold, at some point I just stopped. Subtracting what I have left from what I took down with me, I got rid of -
8 x Shorty Loves Wing Wong
12 x TeenWitch
10 x Garden Funnies
0 yes 0 x PQC pennants (though did give a couple away and swapsies). Will do a proper photo of these as I picked them up the day before heading down there and they are fantastic!
1 x tattoo sheet, again gave a few out as treats
0 x posters (the philistines)
(at some point I will sort out a working online shop, with all this clutter available for all to buy)
Sold a good handful of Alex Pott's Lost Shoe comics, and Oliver East's Trains are Mint went down very well (a massive £53 winging it's way to him).
All in all I broke even and covered my costs. Until we all went to the pub, and I forgot to remember that trains stop at midnight which cost me £45 in a taxi back to my dads. Easy come easy go.
I knew I wouldn't be returning home with an empty bag and bulging wallet, and actually the most rewarding thing about the Thing was meeting Mr's Tillotson and Tingley, both Garden Funnies contributors. Many other fantastic folks, too many to list.
did return home with a nice pile of people's stuff, which I may post a little of here at some point, once I've got a bit of proper work done. I will mention the incredible 'Muppet Maybes' by Roger Langridge - strips originally produced for a Disney magazine which got cancelled. Made me all warm inside.
