Sometimes Less is More

This is a display from a trunk Show I did a few years ago.

When I look at this picture I realize even more that I have a hard time editing.
…and maybe I work too fast.

Look at all of that stuff!
That isn’t work from a group of artists…that is all me. It’s too much.

For most customers it can be overwhelming to walk into a show with that many options. What to look at first…how to see everything…which is the “right” choice.

I think it would be OK if it was a store where you expect a large variety of items to choose from and where you can visit repeatedly but a home or trunk show is generally more successful with fewer choices and a more focused approach.

I also think it is kinder to customers who might be unsure of their tastes and a little indecisive to narrow the options.

You're SO prolific! I don't know if it's too much for some people to browse through, but I think the variety and volume is luscious!

Hmmm. I don't know. I like a lot of stuff. The more stuff the more likely I am to find something I want, and the less stuff the more likely I am to buy something that I don't really want just to be polite.
