Need more customers? I spotted this creative and resourceful artist while walking around the Cottonwood Art Festival in Richardson, Texas this past weekend. Standing in front of his booth, he displayed the clever idea of offering "Free Hugs" to attract customers. I can't say if he sold more art, or even if he gave out any hugs -- but he sure did stop a lot of traffic. Heck, it even grabbed my attention long enough to stop and take this shot.
Hmmm ... offering free hugs to increase business? It's a thought.
