"Singin' in the Rain..." (I'm sure you know this song). Well, maybe I didn't sing, but I certainly found myself in the rain at the Kings Heath Artisan Market. This marked my first experience trading in bad weather. Initially, I was concerned that the market would be empty, devoid of visitors. To my surprise, it was quite bustling!
I was impressed by the individuals who left the comfort of their warm homes to explore the market. Despite the weather, I had numerous interesting conversations because epoxy resin isn't a well-known medium for many people. I love talking about epoxy resin, explaining the technique, and discussing pigments (though I still keep some of my secret techniques to myself, of course). Engaging with people face-to-face is what I love about in-person sales—an experience that online shops can't provide.
I can't wait for another market, which will be on the 1st of December at Eastside Project Gallery in Digbeth. Stay tuned for more exciting news from my Epoxy Resin world :)
