This past weekend I had the awesome opportunity to sell my batiks at the Emerson Umbrella Winter Market in Concord, MA. I had a ton of space to hang my tablecloths, and great natural light:
The show was full of friendly people, great connections and conversations. I canâ€™t count the number of women who told me they had â€œtried batik a long time agoâ€¦. back in the sixties.â€ Somebody also ask how much for my fish stamp! It was a high caliber show, with an amazing array of artists, and I felt honored to be a part.
I especially appreciate my Uncle Remy & Aunt Carla for their company and help watching my booth for most of Saturdayâ€™s sale. It allowed me to briefly chat with some of the other vendors, as well as head to the cafÃ© and refill my tea on a regular basis.
I also appreciate all my friends who showed up to visit and shop (I meant to take pictures of everyone, but forgot): Julie (who told me about the organization in the first place, and was my first visitor on Friday afternoon), Tara, Marty & Susan, Kate, Cam & Rachel, Dan, Doug, Ann & David. (gosh I hope I didnâ€™t forget anybody!) AND all the folks who purchased batik items…. maybe they’ll subscribe to my blog….
