First of all I want to say a BIG thank you to all of you for the lovely words of encouragement you left me, in your comments for the fair on my last post. So v lovely and sweet of all of you, so thank you! x
Well as you will see from below I've included a few pics of my stand for you to see. It was a wonderful venue, an old gothic church with glorious stained glass windows (oops forgot to take a pic!). The organisers were great and the exhibitors were lovely. Such a great atmosphere amongst everyone there, exhibitors and visitors alike.
I had a lot of lovely comments about my work, sold a good amount (considering I was new, it was my first larger selling fair and the current economic situation for so many of us) and have met some lovely people.
my stand (not the best pic sorry!)
my skinny leg birds tweeting in their lovely cage
two abstract stitched works
my thrifted towel drier all spruced up and displaying some more skinny leg birds and clutch purses
some petite purses nestled at the bottom of my drawer unit 'borrowed' from my mum (which two little older ladies had their eye on and wanted to buy!)
It has been a great experience, good exposure for me and my work and I've met some lovely people, I'll be posting about one of my neighbours at the fair this week - the lovely Sue! but more about that later. It is definitely something I'll apply to do again, as Sue said you 'have to do stuff to get stuff' (or words to that effect!) which is true, if I don't get out there no one will know I exist!
I want to say a BIG thank you too, to my lovely Mum & Dad and my bootiful Sister for coming to the fair and supporting me. I wouldn't change you for the world ;0 x
So now it is time for a spring clean and tidy up, a little move around of furniture in the workspace and time to set fresh goals and get on with ticking items on the list of to do's!
And making a trip home this weekend for Mothers Day, see you soon Mum for some cooking, me for you of course! ;0 x
