Handmade Arcade

Last weekend I got up super early along with Holly Liminton to go to Exeter and sell our wares at the Handmade Arcade Craft fair organised by No Guts No Glory

The idea behind this fair is for illustrators and artists to have a place to sell their handmade items. The No Guts No Glory shop sells all sorts of Illustrated things from mini-zines to sweatshirts and badges so we thought it would be a good fair for us to go to!

We took work by a few people on my course which meant we had a wide variety on sale. We carried it all in a borrowed suitcase (thanks Katie) which we also used as a display case, it looked pretty decent in the end :)

It was a very, very chilly day, we did a lot of foot stamping and taking it in turns to get up and walk around. Ben and Abby came down halfway through the day to help with the selling and let us takes breaks to go out in the sunshine and warm up!

The NGNG team kept us happy with vegan chocolate cupcakes and hot cider which was amazing. All in all it was a fun day and we will hopefully be back next year with more to sell (and hopefully it will be a little bit warmer)
