Here I am at the Christmas Market. I sold over half my stock I think and made over £60. I also have a commission for some more cushions and will be sending things to the Christmas Tree Festival, so will make more on top of that total.
A lot of good fun and money raised to keep the village church watertight for the whole community!
I sold all the clay snowmen and the gingerbread men with a 'bite' taken out of them.
Unfortunately I did not take individual photos of things before the show as I was still making things at 11pm the night before and needed all my time for setup once the hall opened in the morning. So anything which sold out isn't there anymore. I may make some more of things which sold very well for the Christmas Tree Festival.
Note: I think having a Christmas tree to display the ornaments would have really helped. I had planned to take one but just forgot to get it out of the garage on the morning of the market.
I'll do some posts this week on the things I made (remaking where necessary). The gingerbread men with a bite out were made from air drying clay from an art shop. I rolled out with a rolling pin and cut out with a cookie cutter. I then used a different cookie cutter to take the 'bite' out allowed to dry and then painted with a 'gingerbread' colour paint I had mixed up. Once the paint was dry I threaded ribbons through the head (or limb) and they were ready to sell.
