I’ve been doing the Neighbourgoods Market ever since it began in the first What if the World studio/gallery in Hope Street, and then also at the Biscuit Mill where it started out with Jesse and me running Handmade Now! (pic of our stand below)
It’s always been a pleasure to do, but lately, with my trip to NYC impending, and my work life barrelling along at a relentless pace, I find myself dreading the weeks where I have to add an extra day of work onto my already over-busy week, and also all the preparation that goes into a market day. So yesterday I squeezed my eyes tight, bit the bullet, and… I quit the Neighbourgoods Market.
It’s sad, as I really have enjoyed running my market stand, even on the windy and rainy winter days, and it was so great seeing the response to my things. I also got to meet heaps of amazing people. But enuff is enuff, and I feel so relieved at the idea of having my weekends back.
I’m planning on doing more studio-based open days and sale days instead (one coming up in early April), so keep an eye out for those, and let me know if you’d like to be on my mailing list.
