Today was my first time at Waikanae Community Market. Sunny but windy; had to move some jewellery stands off my table and onto the handy ‘shelf’ in the car boot – which actually made a nice display area for the non-featured jewellery.
My main display was of “Floral Bouquet” and “Flora” ranges, and I bought some gorgeous flowers from another stallholder that really complemented my display.
I added a few “Halloween” pieces – for dress-up parties, or lovers of the vampire movie genre. (The pieces have names like “Eudoxia”, “Morticia” and “Blood Lines”!)
Because al fresco jewellery making is just too difficult, but I need to be occupied, I worked on my latest EclecticYarn creation between customers. Almost as many people stopped to admire the stitching as the jewellery; maybe I should take some of my smaller fibre artworks next time.
I was lucky to get a space near friendly neighbours who shared some helpful market tips. Several people asked if I’d be back next week: weather permitting, yes!
