Today I spent my time at King George Square for the Suitcase Rummage – basically, people were allowed to bring a suitcase full of whatever they wanted to sell, and it was all free!
I was there to sell some unframed paintings, my keepsake boxes, pendants and cards.
I wish I could say it was a really successful day, and I was busy the whole time, but it was not to be. I was surrounded by people selling pre-loved clothing for 5o cents or $1 a piece, so I guess in contrast my stuff seemed expensive to people.
I did get lots of lovely comments though, and I’m hoping I’ll have more success at the Handmade Expo next Saturday.
If you live in the area, I’d love to see you there!

By the way, you can see one of my brand new paintings in the middle there. I’ll post about it here soon 🙂
Hi, Thanks for plugging The Handmade Expo Market. Sometimes it is all trial and error to find the market that is best for you. Lots of blogging, Facebooking, sending press releases to your local paper, handing out flyers of where you are going to be etc, etc, will attract people to your stall for a look as well. If everyone does this it will attract lots of people to the market and in turn get lots of traffic to you as well, more people, more chance of you selling your art. Hope you have a much better day on Saturday!
