Did you ever think of selling your creative photography work? How about having some return in all that money and time invested in the making your images?

We are booking a space at the next Rose Bowl Flea Market to be held March 09. It will be in the “Arts and Crafts” sector. A tent 10’x20’ with side panels will be provided and the prints will be displayed to be sold. Featuring over 2,500 vendors and 15,000 to 20,000 buyers every Month. The Rose Bowl Flea Market is one of the most famous markets in the world. Celebrating over 40 years of continued success at the world famous Rose Bowl in Pasadena California.

Registration will be $22.00 to cover expenses and is limited to 20 participants. No limits for the number or size of the prints provided by each member, since it does not exceed reasonable limits and does not interfere with overall member participation, however our goal is to give everyone an equal opportunity, so If you decide to submit more the 5 images, please consult with the organizers first.

All prints should be conditioned properly, a mat and a backing board add value and a plastic bag is a must, framing is optional but your prints will stand above the pack. All participants have to provide a list with the print title, size and price as well as a sticker have to be placed in the back of every print with the same data, plus the photographer’s name.
The organizers will not take commission on the sales and the sale price will revert in its totality to the participant member.
We suggest that the sale price for unframed photos as follows:
8x10: $ 25.00
11x14: $50.00
16x20: $75.00
Nevertheless you can sell for the price you think they are worth.

Participants can visit the show but will not be allowed to handling the material or interfere in the selling process.

    It was a great experience. Probably not the best venue for fine art photography, but fun nonetheless! Thank you Alfredo for all your hard work. I actually had a fun day, too!

    It was a fun, beautiful day. Hard work to set up tent and pictures, but thanks to Suzanne and my wife Mara we did a fast and highly presentable job. Lots of people and all kind of merchandise in a very happy environment. The only negative point? Unfortunately we didn't sell anything. For some mysterious reason our beautiful images didn't impress the public. We have learned a good deal though, it will be very important if a new similar event is proposed. Thank you again Suzanne, Mara, William and Cathy for hard work support and presence.

    Hi Alfredo, it was nice meeting you today, I am looking foward to this Sunday. I have looked at your website and I am sure that I will use your services very soon. I enjoyed visiting at your shop. I will see you on Sunday.

      Great, William! I'm pleased as well see you soon!

    I do darkroom prints. So, there are no digital files. If I can leave them at the buildings front desk or something, I can do that.

    March 2, 2013

    • Alfredo T.

      Too bad I had to leave for a little errand, but your work is safe with me, I'll keep you posted with the updates in the event. Thank you.

      March 4, 2013

    • Eric

      Thank you. I appreciate it. I am sorry I missed you but I know I won't have the opportunity to stop by the rest of the week.

      March 4, 2013

  • Alfredo T.

    Hello everyone attending to this event! This is the last week, so please remember: don't leave for the last minute to bring your prints to me. The Rose Bowl don't allow merchandise coming in if you don't have a vendor ticket. So you won't be allowed to carry your prints in the fair area. All prints have to be with me by Friday. I'll not be available Saturday to receive prints. Any question please email me at [masked] or call 310.972.9003. Thank you all.

    March 4, 2013

  • Eric

    I have tried dropping off my prints and called a couple of times but can't get in touch with anyone. Is there some time or place where I can drop off my prints. Thanks.

    March 2, 2013

    • Alfredo T.

      Hi Erick, send your files to my dropbox

      March 2, 2013

  • Catherine

    Perhaps at a later date I can participate.

    February 28, 2013

  • Alfredo T.

    I created a event in my FB page. Maybe you guys can do the same in your pages encouraging your friends to go and maybe raising the selling chances. Putting Catalina's idea in practice!

    • Catalina

      I saw it and shared when you posted it. I think I'm the only going to your event. ;-)

      February 27, 2013

  • William B.

    I work until 2:30 PM and I come by and bring my pictures after 2:30?

    February 25, 2013

    • William B.

      You are at the studio everyday until 4:30?

      February 25, 2013

    • Alfredo T.

      Mostly likely, but before coming give me a call[masked] just in case...Looking forward for your visit!

      February 26, 2013

  • Noel R

    Where will your booth be? I might come after lunch to check it out.

    February 18, 2013

      I don't mind being there at the crack of dawn to help, Call me, my cell:[masked]

      February 25, 2013

    • Alfredo T.

      Because we are first timers we don't choose our spot it's "first come first serve basis". The fair organizers don't allow merchandise coming in after set up time (around 7:00 am). The plan is: all prints can be brought to my studio on Friday 08 and I'll take care to take they in. I'm located at 225 E Broadway, Glendale. Please email me any question.

      February 25, 2013

  • Alfredo T.

    Attention everyone participating this event! The time is approaching fast. I just learned that no merchandising is allowed after set up time. This means that all photos have to be entered with the organizers at once. So all prints have to be delivered to me no later than Friday, March 08. (I will not be available on Saturday). Don't forget to make a list with your name, and the title, size and price of each print as well labeling the prints so they can be identified. Thanks to everyone!

    1 · February 25, 2013

    • William B.

      I am not sure what you mean by deliver? Where do I bring my pictures to be sold? Don't I just report to the booth with my pictures to sell?

      February 25, 2013

  • Alfredo T.

    Anyone has any idea how can we improve or sales? I am accepting suggestions.

    February 21, 2013

    • Catalina

      Ask everyone participating to invite their "friends" on FB? I'll be happy to do that. Maybe 1 out of 258 of my "friends" will actually show up. Other than "advertising"/­mentioning it on each participants' personal websites & at place of work, I'm not sure how else you can get the best reach. At the event -- talk to everyone that comes near the booth/space. Invite them in. Don't be too pitchy -- tell stories that engage. If engagement works online it should work in real-life.

      February 25, 2013

    • Alfredo T.

      Hi Catalina, excellent ideas! I'll, for now on post regularly at my web site and in my FC about the event. Actually I'll create a event in my FB page. And I encourage everyone participating to do the same! Thank's Catalina!

    8x10 Print,Mat,Bag $12.81 with tax
    Total printing 5 ea $64.05

    Total cost including entry fee 86.05 or $17.21 per print

    Assuming you sell all 5 prints at $25 ea your profit is 45%.

    Shelly

    • Eric

      Thank you, Shelly!

      February 21, 2013

    • Alfredo T.

      Assuming you don't have any print yet, you are welcome to bring any prints that you already have.

      February 21, 2013

  • Alfredo T.

    Hi Shelly,

    Anna is correct, the $5.00 in the other trend is for the 8x10 print mat, back board and plastic bag to protect the print. Hope to see you there, it's going to be fun!

    February 20, 2013

    • Eric

      Thanks, Alfredo. Is there a paper you would recommend in terms of quality and longevity?

      February 21, 2013

    • Alfredo T.

      All papers are archival and best quality (I use original Epson Papers, except the Metallic witch is by Arista), so the paper choice depends only on your subject and the mood you want the image to pass.

    Treading on unknown territory out of curiosity.

  • Shelly

    Hi Alfredo, I would like to submit five prints for the flea market. I saw in another thread it's $5 each, is that still correct? Thanks Shelly

    February 20, 2013

    • Anna

      Hello Shelly, not really, it is $22 to participate, then each print would cost depends on the size( that information is above), however you can print your own, but it has to be a quality print, Alfredo is offering great quality and very affordable price. Now, once the image is printed you would need a frame or sleace

      February 20, 2013

    • Anna

      sorry, sleave of som kind, and Alfredo is offering that as well. I would suggest to read the discription of the event carefully and then if you have other questions, please ask. Keep in mind there is a deadline.

      February 20, 2013

  • Eric

    Is there a specific day when we should begin to bring our prepared prints to Alfredo Tisi Imagery? Thanks.

    February 18, 2013

    • Alfredo T.

      if they are ready, a week before the event

      February 18, 2013

  • Jan A.

    Just a comment. I print my own images with an Epson 3880 and Epson Exhibition Fiber Paper. I can't print mine for the price Alfredo Tisi is offering. That is a great deal.

    2 · February 18, 2013

    • Alfredo T.

      Thank you for the comment and for joining to this event. I'm sure that will be great!

      February 18, 2013

    February 18, 2013

  • Alfredo T.

    Hi Folks,
    Time is running! The event will be on Mach 09, make sure your prints are ready to participate, don't leave preparations to the last minute. I'm sure that it will be a beautiful show based on the amazing shots that the members post constantly in here.

    February 18, 2013

  • Steve

    ok, thanks.

    February 8, 2013

  • Steve

    Can we drop off prints, and have them mounted?
    thanks

    February 7, 2013

    • Steve

      8 x 10. probably no more than five

      February 7, 2013

    • Alfredo T.

      Sorry for the delayed answer Steve. It can be mounted in a acid-free pre-cut 11x14 mat with a 8x10 opening, with backing and a plastic bag. For that you will pay $5.00. If you want your pictures mounted please bring them 2 weeks before the show.

      February 8, 2013

  • Eric

    I have darkroom prints I would like to sell. I would be interested in learning more about this.

    February 3, 2013

    • Anna

      Hey Eric, Do you have any specific questions?

      February 7, 2013

    • Eric

      I think most of my questions have been answered. I am now just sorting through which prints I want to use.

      February 7, 2013

  • Alfredo T.

    No Eric you don't have to go.

    February 3, 2013

  • Eric

    Wonderful idea! Do we have to be there or can we just send them?

    February 3, 2013

  • Suzanne

    Are you saying five pieces total, or multiples of five images?

    February 3, 2013

    • Alfredo T.

      Hi Suzanne! You can bring more than five, but we are giving equal display space for each participant.
