I didn’t make much money at the Artisan Market in Soho. I was kind of stuck downstairs in a corner. I did get some good exposure, but not enough to justify the expense. Anyway, back to the street idea.
For those of you who might be interested:
Mayor Bloomberg put all kind of restrictions on where artists could legally set up…..and in a way, I understand that. When you see three vendors in an area selling the same photo of Justin Beiber, that really shouldn’t come under the cover of freedom of speech. Maybe that’s a necessary evil. Hopefully, Bill De Blasio will make it easier for real artists.
