The one thing you don't have much time to bother about when you do a craft fair is your clothes, so I carefully planned each outfit before I went, washed and ironed anything that wasn't already done, wrote down my plans and packed accordingly.
On Friday night I thought I'd be smart in my new black trousers..so I packed my new high heels to go with them..and then because high heels and I have an uneasy relationship I packed my flat black shoes just in case.
Then I packed my black top and a red shirt to wear with my black trousers, and just in case it was too hot I packed an alternative, a black shirt and a cream top to wear with my best black trousers.
I also packed my new patterned top to wear with my new black trousers, should I need a smart outfit..
Then I forgot to take my black trousers.
So on with the brown trousers and anything else I happened to have squashed into my bag.
It didn't matter in the end because it was a very relaxed atmosphere and I had a great time at the Landmark Arts Centre Teddington.
Here's my stand..really awful photograph..
I had the luxury of screens....so I had to use them. Another dreadful pic but it was dark inside.
I took a ton of stuff, I sold half a ton of stuff and am now about to list the rest on ETSY.
I met some lovely people including Pat from Altering Thoughts and her lovely friend Marien who had both travelled a long way to get to Teddington.
One of the best things about the weekend was getting to see the work of Karen of Contemporary Embroidery in the 'flesh'. I can't begin to describe how exquisite it looks in real life, it has a magical vintage-luxury quality. Beau...(.oops.)Daren't say it..and Karen knows why.
I also met Kirsty of meplusmolly and saw her lovely work.
But I didn't take many photographs..too busy chat chat chatting...and avoiding the cakes on the stand opposite which winked at me all weekend.
Back home to a house in need of some major care and attention.
Now, where's that mop...
You have noticed I am on line and not mopping the floor. I have zillions of blogs to read and I even added more by clicking 'next blog' on the top bar of blogger....just try it...random fun.
