I have joined a group in my city called Arts Marketplace and the woman running it has decades of experience with helping artists to behave and appear and conduct their businesses more professionally, successfully and lucratively.

Saturday, La Pilita Museum is having their year end blow out t-shirt sale

and all their patrons, etc, come. I am offered a free table and haven't much to sell as I have been out of town or preparing for that.
