Spring has sprung, yippee :))) at least for a day or two, lawnmowers are buzzing and the smell of freshly mowed grass is making me want to get out into my jungle and start attacking it! Mothers day is looming fast, still time to post some lovely items out if you get your orders in quickly.
The weekend at the ETC show in Brighton was an experience but not altogether as good as hoped, the footfall was poor, my position was right at the back by the loading bay doors and away from all the action which was disappointing but non the less I had some lovely comments and met some really nice stall holders and visitors. the display went well and all the planning was worth it. Time will tell wether it pays in future enquiries but as the wise people say if you don't try you never know so we will wait and see.
This week I've been working on a few bespoke orders, One for an over the head style for a lady with problems doing clasps up, another for a chocolate necklace 18" and another for a rainbow in a 23 " length. All are finished and delivered. I've popped some piccies on here for you to see.
Today I spent the day staffing 'Traders' a crafter's co-opererative in Littlehampton High Street, its a lovely first floor gallery with the work of many different artists and crafters, a shabby chic furniture specialist and a weaver with her loom in a separate workshop. downstairs is an antique gallery. It was an enjoyable day spent chatting to some lovely local collectors one of old gramophone records and one of old postcards of littlehampton dating back many decades.
