I was next to the guy with imported handbags from Taiwan, oh yes..., amongst other stalls of similar stuff...... he looked with concern at my stall, full of etchings and linocuts and handmade cards etc, during the whole 10 days!! of not selling anything,
and gave me this piece of good advice when we parted ways on the last night
- "You should think about changing your product, Miss".
This has stayed with me all these years, and been cause for many a good laugh, and also some rather caustic remarks from other artists...... well, etsy, reminds me so much of this now.....which makes it pretty obvious.... time to walk away!
PS: the photo is only there cause I miss her!
