Last Friday and Saturday I participated in this amazing market in Maple Ridge.
We had hundreds of people showing up, I am sure the total number was thousands by the second day.
This is a great opportunity for local artists show their bigger pieces, since we have spaces, not only tables, to show our products.
Here is the stuff I brought:
I love my pink elephant and dresser, but they came back home with me! Lots of people looked at them. The old picnic basket and the iron set sold.
I painted these TV dinner tables with ASCP Graphite and used dark wax on them. Instead of painting the top, I made it a chalkboard, so people can write on them: EAT YOUR VEGETABLES! LOL! This is how those black TV tables started…
I love their retro style… and so did my clients! Sold one to one lady and two to another.
Inside the basket there were 3 pictures of a little boy playing in his bath, and playing with his dog. The pics were metal, looked like from the 70’s
I absolutely adored them, but my son, now 18, said “NO” when I asked if I could hang them on his wall bathroom… it would have matched perfectly…
These bedside tables were the last thing I painted for the fair, and they sold quickly! The moon glow trays with little cups sold right the way.
The long sofa table sold as well as a bunch of the small stuff. The big mirror also sold. But most of my beautiful mirrors came home with me.
I will be hanging them on my hallway for now!
The greenery was hung correctly in the beginning, but the banner was never perfectly in place. It was an improvement from my first fair, but I still need to find a way to have a nice background for my booth. One that does not require any permanent damage to the walls!
I love my three-tier table, can you see it? Blue? I took it to add interest and lots of people looked at them but nobody bought it, thank God!
It is now back beside my dining table where it belongs!! I just wanted to have my best pieces at the market and because of my business class I haven’t been buying much, so I took some stuff from my house.
Actually, I could not find a pattern. Usually people buy painted stuff. This time, my big painted pieces sold, and a lot of my small not painted stuff sold.
I will post my big pieces in my for sale page soon!
Thank you so much for coming over to my new blog!
