Well….

two days into Artisans on the Beach and I have paid off the hut rental and just another £6 will see my daily parking fees covered for the six weeks too.

Yes, I am very pleased with how the event has started. I have learnt valuable lessons – it’s too cold for sandals and bare feet now in 8C or below and a coastal breeze. Food is a great trade between hut holders. Knowing more people in the town pays off in terms of knowing visitors beforehand.

Main sales are cards including the very popular Santa over Swanage new Christmas card. I have sold one miniature and a framed print today.

Now a break for other jobs to do then back on Tuesday and I need to top up Santa… stocks and hand-coloured cards especially for Cromer and Studland.
