Wow! I can't believe this...

Valerie, a friend of mine, owns an art gallery on Main Street in our little town. About a month ago she asked me to put some of my things in her gallery. Now, this is a fine art gallery, with really nice paintings by fabulously talented artists. I struggled with the decision for about 2 weeks when she approached me again about the matter. I asked her for 2 more days to decide. I struggled over the decision because her shop is so "up-town", my "stuff" didn't seem to fit. Valerie said "Willa, you are a local artist, why shouldn't I put your things in the gallery?" Finally I said ok. About a week ago she sold one of my items. Today she sold 3 more of my pieces. Praise the Lord, for both of us because she marked them up a pretty penny. These are items I am selling on Etsy (at a lesser price), so I've had to deactive them from my Etsy shop....because they're SOLD. I'm doing the Hallelujah dance!
