Duckpond Market

Well I did it! My first art/craft market! It was a great day, so friendly and some wonderful stalls. I had a bit of a crisis the night before when I realised that no table was provided, but with some creative improvisation I got around not having anything to use (thank you to Mr Roselullabydolls for stopping me from panicking for long enough to think something up!)

I sold 2 dolls and and plenty of postcards, there was also a lot of interest in my portrait dolls, I'm very glad I put together some literature to give to people about them.


I didn't sell a single brooch though, which I was rather disappointed about, but I think I need to look at how I present them, I'm not sure that many people realised what they were, and I was so busy talking to everyone about portraits that I didn't explain them.

I'm really looking forward to next week up in Cambridge, and next month back at Duckpond!

Congratulations on the fair, I am sure people will go away and read your blurb and then come back with orders. I have never seen anything even similar, you have found a real niche here.
Well Done.

Congratulations; your stall looked really eye catching and different.
Maybe next time you could wear a brooch (if you weren't wearing one today of course)I find wearing some of your 'wares' can catch people's eye;especially as your brooches are very individual.

Well done...good presentation! I love the dollhouse. Good suggestion about wearing your wares- people often need to see how it will look on.

You're so right! and what's frustrating is that I knew I should wear one and somehow that knowledge fell out of my head today! will def do so in cambridge!

Your stall looks great, keep us posted where you are doing more, I would love to come along and see those gorgeous dolls!

I love the little houses for display. For the brooches you could simply add a printed label saying 'Brooches £x each'
and yes, I agree about wearing one,
