Fall Designer Fair in Strasbourg

Finally, the designer fair time has come and gone ! It was in Strasbourg this week-end (in the East of France), which is a really nice city. I wish I could have stayed one more day to visit... and to see it in the daylight!

I did not bother too much about the booth, since it is all ready to set up now ! I just had to finish a lot of pieces to show there... The hard part about it was having to get there for 7 am in the cold ;o) It took us only 3 hours to set it up.




Many different crafts were exhibited there: painting, sculpting, metalworking... Made me wish I had a big house and enough money to buy one of each!

There weren't too many visitors on the first day, since it poured down all day long. This is how I realised the tent was waterproof... only up to a certain amount of water !

But the following day was great, it even almost felt like summer ;o) Luckily, there was two of us to welcome people on the booth, because I would never have coped with the crowd by myself ^-^


All in all, it was a tiring, but great fair. And now... I'm off to start all the custom orders!

Your stall looks great! I've been trying to get mine to look more welcoming but it has a big pole down the middle,and Irish people won't step over the invisible line at the front. Congrats on the etsy featured seller.

Hi, enjoyed reading your interview on Etsy, congratulations! Admire your work and language skills too. Did you pick an Indonesian shop name ('night') or is this a coincidence?
Keep up the lovely work!

Looks so fun! Congrats on your Etsy feature! Three cheers for living the dream!!

Marie said...

Thank you all for your lovely comments!
Paperfection, it is a coincidence, but I learnt about the Malaysian meaning before choosing it for good though ;o) It also has meanings in many other languages.

a gorgeous, inviting display you have put together... love the rug! I wanted to do one in my booth as well but around here it stops people coming in, they don't want to 'dirty' the rug!

and so FANTASTIC you got featured on Etsy, may much deserved success come to you...
