Handmade Monday - To craft fair or not to craft fair?
On Mondays I partake in Handmade Monday, hosted by Wendy of 1st unique gifts. HM is a way of seeing what people have been up to during the week, but it also helps me realise what I've achieved (or not).
In April I arranged to rent a cabinet in a shop, in Machynlleth.
By May I decided that I was not going to another craft fair (OH let me down twice for childcare, and attendances were very poor).
So in June I kept my jewellery stock at a limited level.
And on Friday 1st July, The Emporium, Machynlleth opened its doors. (read all about it here - well my cabinet anyway!).
So back on my workbench, there sat my earring rack, empty.
But then the voices in my head began:
What NO more craft fairs?
Not even at Christmas?
What about Dolgellau farmers market?
What about the Dolgellau Country Market?
By Saturday 2nd July I was back in the studio filling the earring rack! I concentrated my efforts on glass bead earrings, but my real joy is wirework jewellery so roll on next week!
