... it is one of my most favourite sayings and I have decided to finally take it's advice.
i have wanted for so long to try and sell my art somehow other than online - not that i have been online for that long. so i have decided to try a couple of art and craft markets. i have visited two in the past two weekends - the first not so great as it was full of hand made children's clothes. then i visited one today that was wonderful - Bella Vista Artisans Market.
today was only the second time it has operated and there were alot of stalls, although several sellers told me that it was very quite day. i remember reading an article years ago about establishing a market, and it said that it takes about 12 months for a market to be well know and establish, so there is alot of promise for this one as it is in a beautiful setting.
i did speak with a very talented stallholder there called genevieve who is an artist and sells online through redbubble.com. her artwork was wonderful and i really enjoyed talking to her. she was selling prints of her work in varying sizes as I want to do. she seems dedicated to the market and has been there for the first two and plans to be there next month.
so i am busy investigating the most cost effective and professional outcome for printing, designing the look of my stall (the fun part), getting insurance, oh and I must remember to book in to the market. Bliss
