To market, to market...

Saturday was a big day - we were up early (like too early for coffee at our usual cafe in town which momentarily looked to be an inauspicious start to the day) and off to Montville. We drove thru mist and gentle drizzle which was beautiful; but also potentially challenging for those doing the outside markets. In the end the weather was overcast and beautifully cool after our recent heatwave temperatures.

We set up in the charming hall along with three authors with their recently published works and another book artist; whilst out on 'the green' there must have been another twenty artists' stalls. In the end we had a reasonable day - never rushed off our feet; occasionally slow, and we did sell a couple of books.

It has been interesting to reflect on markets as a way of selling your work and already I have ideas about how I might do it differently another time!

Here we are all packed up and ready to go and a couple of shots of the set up. At the end of the day, Kim showed me her photographing 'box' and let me try it out - the timber book came up so well using this creation I think we need to make one.
