Sooo, I’ve been extremely busy the last week. Flew home for a couple of weeks, so I had to pack, and now I am in dusty, sticky & extremely hot Bucharest. I already start missing cool and humid Muenster )
As you might know if you follow me on Facebook, I went to a Vintage & Handmade fair last weekend: Dress to Impress 3. Actually, I had no idea about this fair, but Alina Panait, who makes gorgeous print pendants and next to whom I sat at a couple of other fairs asked me if I don’t want to share a table with her. And advised me to bring my vintage jewelry along. This turned out to be really really good advice, since I sold only two handmade items. Yes, the fair was almost entirely populated by sellers with vintage and second hand clothes, some vintage jewelry sellers and one or two tables with handmade goodies which weren’t very successful. Anyway, the sales from my vintage stuff were quite ok (given the fact that it was very hot outside and I think many interested buyers chose to stay indoors, especially on Saturday), but I can’t help feeling more attached to my handmade stuff. I am always waaay happier if someone buys handmade rather than vintage from me. However, I did buy something too: a very ethnic dress with nice floral print all over (needs a bit of adjusting so I’ll post it in the next days), a scarf for wrapping around my head when the sun is too strong – I don’t own any hats – and a nice latte macchiato brooch from my colleague Alina.
Now I am photographing and editing the remaining vintage and handmade items for my Breslo shop. And I have to craft some big custom orders (mainly rasta bracelets) and have also some consignment work to do (yay! but it’s not 100% sure so I will tell you more when everything is ready).
