I have an event coming up in July, and I have a question for those of you who have had any success marketing your work outside the internet. Has anyone tried to get your pictures into a shop or store? How did you do it -- go down there with your work?

I'd love to get my work to a wider audience, but I'm not good at self-promotion and dread walking into a place with a portfolio. I'll be showing my work at a local garden/antiques store this summer, and rather than just hoping that people will see it and be interested, I have an idea.
I've had a very nice postcard made up with the date and one of my pictures -- how about if I mail it to a bunch of shops a week or two ahead of the event? I'll write my website on it, and if they're interested, they can come by the event. What do you think? Other ideas, from those of you who are a step ahead of me?

I hope you're having a great weekend!
