Two years ago I traded at Portobello market, and sold some arts and crafts, I remember selling some of these african fabric scarves which sold out on the first day. I had to make more that night because they were so popular. I made quite a bit of buck and maybe I may do the same thing this year. These are all made from left over fabric that I have used to make dresses and stuff...All veritable and Vlisco fabric from West Africa.
I will be focusing on accessories for a while because spring is round the corner and feel that they are worth the promotion and advert. The scarves can be won on anything,,,, I remember this guy was wearing a suit and he bought one and wore it immediately, I was chuffed yes...but I thought he was brave. I mean...this guy looked great....
For the corsages,,,,see pictures below... can be won as brooches, hair clips (they all have the necessary clip ons on the back), attached to a bag or belt...or even as a ring...believe me...I have rocked one as a ring...and it worked.
I am going to try and focus on African style clutch bags...I think they will sell well.....xxxx (like the clutch in the picture below)
