Fairs and markets are something which I do occasionally, and really ought to do more often. There’s no denying that they’re hard work, but I really enjoy the opportunity to see what people think of my work first hand. Making sales is also a good thing!
I haven’t done any since December, which is a shame, and I’m therefore really looking forward to Kensal Flea this month. It’s taking place on Saturday 24th March, and if you’re in London that day it’d be lovely to see you there.
In the meantime I need to continue to make more books, and then get them stamped and labelled. That’s the not-so-fun bit, making price tags and stamping my details into every book. Still, it’s got to be done and as fiddly as it is I do like the way the colourful tags look (all made from offcuts, very little goes to waste!), and although I still sometimes get the stamp a bit crooked there’s also something quite satisfying about seeing my little rubber stamp put to good use.
