Hello! what a couple of great weekends in Sydney.. Last week the Finders Keepers, which i have to say is going from strength to strength. Its' only downfall is how busy it is.. My tip for the organisers is at least have the stalls 4 metres apart as it was getting a little competitive! Click on the above link for some decent shots of the scene. Personally i was so glad that Shannon from Aunty Cookie had flown up from Melbourne - I had to buy this whimsical piece for my wall. My other great discovery was this beautiful scarf (the picture here not quite doing it justice) from states of nature. go have a look..
So then, yesterday Sydney's Zine Fair. WOW what a blast. Amzing how such an adrenalin rush can stop a person eating for 6 hours! Thanks to everyone who dropped by to say hi and for your support!
As a busy human, (there's a lot of us out there) full-time working, mother, i don't get out to sell my wares often - so was very pleased to have this opportunity. It always fascinating to hear peoples reactions and to see what sells.. (who'd have thought that so many people wanted to read about a fluffy white cat named 'Elvie' who wasn't so charming leaving a pile of vomit outside the bathroom door in the early hours of this morning).
i did have a quick look around and this is what i found..
My absolute favs are the girls from tiny paper hearts, they just have a great way with words and pictures. The 'mini zine pack' by the Fetus was my pick of the day... sure this the downturn - but hey handmade is definitely going strong!
