This is something I've been wanting to do for such a long time!!
Since I got pregnant I knew I would have to change things up with my business to keep things running smoothly both at the end of my pregnancy and once baby boy arrives. I knew that doing shows would become increasingly difficult as my pregnancy progressed - and that eventually I'd have to break one of the rules I'd made a long time ago when it came to selling work in my online shop.
A while back I made this rule - that I would only sell certain prints at shows - NOT in my online shop. It was a way of making the shopping experience a bit more exclusive and fun for shoppers and kept me focused on creating more originals when I wasn't vending. This worked for a long time, until this past Saturday in fact! Saturday was the Made by RVA Creative Market - the event that made me realize doing shows further into my pregnancy was not the best move. It was such a fun event and a great way to end this season until I'm able to pick things back up again* once my maternity leave ends.
*literally - carrying bins of art displays while pushing 30 weeks pregnant is NOT easy - shout out to my hubby for all the heavy lifting!
So the times they are a-changing and now that I won't be out and about vending around the city - rules have been broken and you can now officially purchase all RVA prints, illustrations, and paintings in one place in my online store - SHOP RVA !
There are 50+ pieces currently available with more that will be added very soon - including more 5 x 7" prints, and note cards with brand new illustrations featured on the front!
***PLUS with ANY purchase, you'll receive a FREE RVA Calendar (while supplies last!)! ***
As always - thank you for coming out to events and shopping local, for supporting artists and makers like me. I am so lucky to live in a city full of art lovers!
