Market stall - 5th July

well we had our market debut on Sunday 5th of July in Newgate Market in York. It was an interesting experiment to find out what the public thinks of our work, I found it very helpful to be able to talk to the public about what we are doing and who we are. There were some very positive responses and lots of people stopped to talk to us - including other stall holders, who were for the most part very intrigued and full of practical advice for us for next time (and there will be a next time - watch this space!)

The display itself looked really good with Ben's prints hung from the top, clothes down the sides and a varied assortment of things on the stand itself. Jewellery went down well, and nearly everybody stopped to admire the rag door curtain - children especially had a fantastic time playing with that!

We will be displaying and selling at the Made in Yorkshire Fair next month on Parliament street in York, and we are looking for any craft fairs or local village fetes where we can get a space - so any suggestions, please feel free to tell us!
