Well it's 2 weeks today since I packed my bags and lugged my Mellybee range to the 2nd Annual Renegade Craft Fair in London held on the 15/16th September- and I've finally got round to posting some photos. (Yes it's been that busy here)!
Here's just a brief recap of what went on with some photos of the fair and people I met.
It was an early start on Saturday morning at camp Renegade sellers alike were setting up from around 8- I managed to get there by 9 and was greeted by Jam and Ali from Hellododo who were sharing the booth space with me. After sorting out how we positioned the tables we set to work sticking, stacking and general displaying of our wares ready for the opening at 11am.

I also had my photo taken by the very talented Karolina Koziel - you'll see the profile photo she took on my facebook page and other social media sites- including this blog!
Here are some photos of the other stall holders met:
|Custommade-jewellery and bags|
|Miso Funky and Finest Imaginary|
|Hand over your fairy cakes - all the way from Glasgow!|
|I am Acrylic- all the way from 'round the corner..|
|Mr. Sean Mort's Print Shop - our booth neighbour|
It was a great couple of days- not only was it a good opportunity to meet all the lovely customers that came but also being able to share advice and tales with other independent sellers in that kind of environment was invaluable. Folksy, being one of Renegade's sponsors made themselves available for questions and tips on selling online- they even bought us tea on Sunday for anyone who wanted to pick their brains!
