Saturday saw Handm@de Cambridge set up in the Guildhall. Some 43 stalls, with a lovely mix of items up for sale - including ceramics by Lauren Denny, wooden bowls and pens by Turned & Twisted, not to mention some stunning art, lovely jewellery and fabulous fabric goodies!
The word had gotten around, with a bit of a queue of people waiting at 11 when the doors opened. No doubt they were after one of the fab goody bags that we had put together. Over the course of the day we had just over 600 visitors, a wonderful turnout especially in the current economic climate. One of our visitors was Etsy's International Development person, Liz. A lovely lady! Another visitor of note (we think... no-one is absolutely sure!) was Rory McGrath... I didn't notice, but then I have the observational skills of a blind, deaf non-observational thing! There were great comments from stallholders and visitors alike, with many commenting on how much they liked that we had made a decision not to accept resellers.
I had a great day, and am now looking forward to Winchester on July 5th.
