The Art of Sitting and Waiting
Has never been something I've been terribly good at. I'm a pretty restless person (as aforementioned gypsy tendencies alluded to) so I like to be up and about doing something. Today my older sister and I braved the morning crisp to have a little market stall at her university which is in the heart of the city. She's studying in the design faculty so they were encouraging students to showcase their creative wares. It was also a great opportunity to test out the market experience because up till now I have only sold things on etsy or to family and friends.And though I employed my best saleswoman skills it was fairly quiet - if it wasn't for the funky music they were playing in the nearby "Interactivation Studio" I would have got very bored indeed! That said, we did make a few sales between us and lots of people seemed to love the blue labels and yoga bags which are new additions to the brood!
