Made in Brighton – makers market

Last weekend I had a stall at a market for arts and crafts held at Brighton marina. Aptly called Made in Brighton and organised by the Laughing Dog Gallery. Now I’m no stranger to doing market stalls, having worked on several stalls at countless festivals over 20 years and I used to have a weekly stall in Oxford selling retro skate wear and the silver jewellery I used to make. However this was the first time I’ve been trader trash in a while and I’ve not laid out my arty wares on a market pitch before. It was a great weekend punctuated by fabulous entertainment from class acts such as the Polyester Fiesta ‘fashion show’ and The Swinging Ninjas, which gave us all a break, a workout and kept us going. I had a 3 for 2 sale on my prints which went down well. All in all my nostalgia for having a stall was raised and I wouldn’t say no to doing it again.
