Last weekend I attended my first market. I had a stall where I exposed a selection of my paper creations: paper frames, handmade cards and paper accessories.
It was a first experience for me and I really enjoyed it.
The venue (Out of the Blue on Dalmeny St) is great, a good located venue offering a lot of space and a lot of natural light thanks to the huge rooflight. The Arts Market was organised by Out of the Blue, a company promoting creativity and art. They organise each week special events and they also rent studios.
I didn't sell a lot, just enough to pay the stall and buy me 2 coffees. I'm not complaining as it was also the first market of the year and there were 2 other big events on the same day (Edible Edinburgh Feed the 5000 and the Rosspapercrafts show at Meadowbank) attracting a lot of locals.
I also enjoyed meeting other crafters and was able to discover some original pieces. I will renew the experience and hope to sell more goodies for Christmas.
