To craft fair or not to craft fair (Part 2)

So, if you’re thinking about selling at craft fairs, there is a lot to consider first. Think about the time you will spend on this – planning your stall, travelling to the fair and the setting up and packing up time, as well as the actual time of the fair….

Happy New Year!

I hope 2014 brings all you wish for :)

I’ve started the new year with a brand new shop! www.JustABitDifferent.co.uk is now up and running and selling alternative clothing for adults and kids. You may remember that www.Oshun.co.uk used to sell a mix of my handmade clothing and other quirky brands, but recently links to my Etsy shop. So I’ve decided to keep my handmade and vintage brand Oshun on Etsy, and start a new shop for the clothing by Phaze, Susu Mama, Hell Bunny, Feu Follet, Poisen Industries, Strangeways and others. I’m very excited to be re-visiting this business and hope it expands this year. I’ll be adding more stock soon and will be regularly putting items at a reduced price for a limited time, so please join www.facebook.com/OshunCreations for news and updates.

Well, I’ve stopped being completely distracted by that amazing Sherlock episode and will now post this post!

Eddie Izzard Force Majeure live dvd

I don’t know why, but I’ve gone off Eddie Izzard a bit lately. Maybe it’s because he was being a little too boastful about his wonderful mind when he was interviewed on the Last Leg earlier this year. Or maybe it’s his politics. I watched the dvd with an open mind though…
