Saturday 10th July saw Scott and I headed to Forest Hill in south east London. The fair was held at the Forest Hill Methodist Church. It was a hot day, so the market was probably quieter than we’d hoped. But we met some lovely crafters and chatted with them about crafting, other events, and generally networked. There was even a celebrity to open the fair. Well, one very far down the alphabet-listed celebrities anyway. But he was lovely and he bought a couple of things from us.
We met Mel of Mrs P’s Jewellery selling her wares. I liked her wire encased glass hearts.
And Anna of Black Cactus in London who is a screen printer. Cute corsages, and also an Australian lass.
And Ailsa of Coucou Heart who sells one off steampunk jewellery. I chatted to her about possibly selling my Lego jewellery at comic conventions. I’m keen to expand where I sell, and a few people have suggested it. Ailsa had sold her jewellery at one of the large comic conventions in London and had been successful. I’m very curious to see if we’d do well also.
In between sales and talking to customers, we chatted to the people above. It is always useful to chat to other crafters to find out what they’re up to, what they think of other markets, and where they get their ideas from. And what they think of your work. We chatted to Mel, Anna and Ailsa throughout the day, and hopefully we’ll see them again at the next Misty Moon market in September.
So there you have it. Go forth and check out their shops (and ours of course!).
