Christmas Craft Fair
Here's a close-up of my brooches, a couple of pouches and you can just catch a glimpse of some hand made buttons I made at ceramics class. I might make some more if the tutor will let me use white clay. The teracotta is fiddly to get nice colours on.
Someone asked me if there was one particular thing which sold the best. I have to say that it was pretty even across the range of stuff I had with me. I sold a couple of shibori felted scarves, the felted soaps flew off the stall - I could have sold twice the amount - and the brooches and cards were popular as well. My husband and my eight year old turned up for a while and I took the opportunity to look at some rag rug brooches at a stall across from me. I couldn't decide which one I liked so I called my husband over. When I went back to my stall my eight year old was handing a woman some change - he'd only sold a hat for me! He's very chuffed and has decided that he's going to be my manager. I'll make it, he'll sell it. Seems like a good idea to me.
Anyway, I'm hoping to have a bit of time in the next couple of weeks to catch up on other people's blogs and find out how everyone is doing. Right now I haven't got time to scratch my backside. I have someone interested in stocking my brooches and I have Christmas orders for felted soaps and kits coming in. It's all gravy as they say but it means I've somewhat neglected my blogging duties and not had time to read what other people are doing. I mean to rectify that as soon as possible and will turn up at your blogs with mulled wine and mince pies very shortly!
