A big special thanks to Emily from Pop Glass who had the stall next to me and to the Lovely girls from 3 Blind Mice, Kate, Claire and Alice who were friendly, bought some of my things and modelled them and sent other people across to see my clothes they were just plain gorgoeus. Also a big thanks to Sophie Hill from That Vintage who is always a joy to do a market with and so helpful. And to Isis and Sam and Maya oh and every one really that made it such a wonderful experience.
Next weekend is the Xmas sale at the place where I have my studio, The Tin Shed Pottery, 13 Russell St Invermay. Friday 5pm - 8pm, Saturday and Sunday 10am - 5pm. Hope to see you all there.

I did the market and it was ok but not as fabulous as I had hoped, this was made more difficult by the fact that my position was so dim people were having to peer to see what was for sale. And quite honestly my stuff probably didnt exactly fit the demographic of the market. So more research is most definitely needed to find a market were I am a more comfortable fit. On the upside I did manage to buy myself a few pressies, a couple of books; Handmade in Melbourne so I can see what is happening and where and a book on Encaustics which is an area I would like to explore next; a funky owl who I just couldn't resist when I saw him peering quizzically from his branch in the window of a florist. And there was much looking and eating and drinking and hanging out with my best friend. But now It is time to return to work so today I am back in the studio gearing up for the Niche market on friday.
