I was invited to participate in a book to be edited in China called Slow handicraft : 80 handmade creators and D.I.Y hot tips :-) I've written a small text about myself and then made a tutorial, explaining how to make my button bobby pins.

9  CRAFTY BUSINESS ADVICE / Tips for Participating in Craft Fairs / My first Crafts Fair! on: July 09, 2007 03:53:32 AM
Last saturday I've participated in my first fair that took place here in my city (Coimbra, Portugal) :-) It's a new concept of fair that's being organized that's called "No Rules Fair", where the only rule is that you can't be a professional sales person to participate. It gives room to independent artists and amateurs and one can sell pretty much anything: art, crafts, vintage items, clothes, the vegetables you grow in your garden, etc.

Me and a girl I met online went there to sell our creations, this was our space:

And here's a close-up of my part:

This fair takes place the first saturday of each month and this was the second edition of it. In the first one, more people participated and bought things, in this one there wasn't many people around due to vacations, but I still managed to sell 6 of my items and had a great day meeting new people and having this new experience :-)

I've bought a couple of buttons from another artist and traded a necklace too:

I'll definitely participate in further editions :-)
