So far the Matrix Set sale has been going well, with a strong first day especially. (It ends tomorrow.) This is really Ctein's personal sale and not a regular TOP offering, but, before every sale we're associated with, I ask the artists how many sales it would take for them to feel: a) bitterly disappointed, b) adequately satisfied, and c) over-the-moon happy. Then I ask them to make a prediction—and I make mine. One thing I've learned: different artists have very different expectations!
It's always a guess—this time especially. At any rate, the number of Matrix Sets sold is already just short of my own prediction for the whole sale, despite the very unusual and specialized nature of what's being offered. There are still many excellent sets available.
I still plan to buy a set to donate to my local museum, pending hearing from the curator, which should happen tomorrow. Posterity will reward you if you do the same...this is just the kind of thing that will disappear from the planet unless someone has the foresight to set a few aside.
Meanwhile, plans for our next sale have still not yet gelled, despite several possibilities. One thought is that I might have a sale of my own work to try to help fund a move to better office space...so I can hire a temp to help me with the sales. (Life's a circle, you see.)
I have some nice things planned for this week. For one thing, we'll catch up with some of the other cool photography-related stuff that has appeared elsewhere on the Web recently. There seem to be more good sites now than ever, even though a fair number of them just exist to sell gear. (Not that there's anything wrong with that.)
