Sparkle

Well hello bloggy bods! well the weekend has been and gone so quickly so I thought I would get back to you with some pics of the event.

Sales were made and goods have found new homes despite the terrible weather that we all seem to be having! It was grey, windy and intermittently rainy all weekend so not especially conducive to people wanting to come out and brave it. However a good weekend was had, such a lovely venue and I haven't found yet such friendly exhibitors! It's always good to somewhat immerse yourself in the company of like minded creative folk at times, don't you think? you can have a good ol chin wag about the ins and outs of your creativity and ideas. Much like we do here amongst our online blogging but I have to say it's always nice to put faces to 'online' names and to see work in the flesh, it's always even more stunning than the photos you see.

So to my pics, I was a bit better this time and actually managed to get a few snaps of the building, in between the raindrops!

The Landmark Arts Centre


A small part of the stunning ceiling


More beauty above my head!


And so to some of the stands there
The lovely Sue Allan was opposite me, which was fab, love her work and I have posted about her before back in March I think



The fabulous Ian, Potnotch, next to me whose ingenious pot hangers sold sooooooooo well


The absolutely exquisite, delicate and stunning work of Karen's, contemporary embroidery, her detail is amazing!


The lovely Jackie and her gorgeous tactile accessories, such vibrant and rich colours with stitched textural details


And one of the delicious food stalls , Planet Cake, that was opposite her, I'm not sure I could've coped sitting opposite it all weekend, I would have succumbed to the lure of the cake.........


And finally some pics of my wee stand, with me trying my hardest to make the best use of the space I had available to display my 'wares' on! With ladders, muslin covered pin boards, mannequins and shelving...........


scarf roll close up


festive skinny long stockings


purses for your pennies


And a small switch around to hang purses off the rungs instead of the fabric scarves


I am now packing up all stock to roll onto my next port of call this week, Brighton Open Houses where my work is being displayed for the next three weekends at Kate Lulham's abode - 'Delicious Delights', so if you live in or around the area be sure to check out some of the houses on the trails, you won't be disappointed!

See you all soon, avoid the raindrops if you can! ;0 x
