The past few months have been extremely busy! Starting with preparations for Perth Upmarket, followed by preparations for the Made on the Left market, as well as the Montage pop-up shop! It's all happening at once!
One of my new items for the Perth Upmarket was this screenprinted squirrel cushion. It has a cute acorn patterned fabric on the back. I think he looks quite comfy on this retro armchair!
Now on to Made on the Left - this was the first MOTL market where I have been a part of the committee organising it. I got to find out how much hard work and planning actually goes into a market (a lot!) and all by volunteers! I really enjoyed being part of the team and helping to bring this great event together :)
The venue for this market was the one40william building in the Perth CBD - it had an industrial look with unfinished surfaces, lots of concrete and tubing but unfortunately included zero lighting! Fortunately it had big windows to let natural light in and some hired spotlights attempted to light the rest of the area (when they decided to work!). I really liked the feel of it - I just wished I had had time to look at all the other stalls - there were so many good ones! It was great that so many people came along too. Here's my table all set up with some new bunting for decoration.
As part of the build up for the market, I was interviewed for an article in the Post newspapers! See, I'm famous! :)
I haven't even got onto telling the adventures behind setting up a pop-up shop yet! I think I'll have to save that for another post. First I'll have a little lie down :)
