We had a spur of the moment opportunity to have a booth at the Farmingdale fair out on Main St. over the weekend. Was a perfect day to get outside and I wanted to thank all the people that came through the booth. We are always grateful of the compliments and gratitude we get from people and am glad to add something different to these types of events. Graphic design, and good art in general, should always be something that is readily available to the people. I am glad we can contrast the things you see with something that is original, our own and as one thoughtful gentleman put it "valid".
It's also really great to see the disparity of people that buy from us. I sold to a woman who's sending a Long Island map to her family in Thailand, an Aussie who was bringing home a Manhattan map for himself, a ride your bike, jets and giants poster to a football loyalty confused bicycle lover, an Ireland map to and Irishman from Leitrim and of course several LI maps to people from the neighborhood. Indeed a few steps closer to global supremacy that even a little kid throwing up outside our booth cant stop.
One thing I wanted to point out, based on a comment from a customer, is that I was able to make an addition to the Long Island surf beaches poster. So welcome Tobay Beach, the often overlooked neighbor of Gilgo to the mix. Am having these printed as lithographs and are available immediately.
Thanks again to all the customers and other people who showed interest. I also decided to continue having free shipping so that you can get something you may have not pulled the trigger on, and not have to pay for the shipping. If you have any questions feel free to email me or drop a comment in post.
