Thank you so much to my beautiful sister Meg for sitting in the car with me outside the shop for ten minutes debating the pros and cons of selling my craft.
It has been more than six months since I have had my work in a shop and although I have been doing the odd market here and there I'm still a bit unsure about the sale thing.
Making, sewing and crocheting is something I do to relax and to express myself. It is never going to support my family or probably even pay me for the hours I put into it.
But there is something about that feeling you get when somebody else loves what you make enough to pay for it and take it home. Meg, a writer, compared it to getting your book published by a publisher rather than publishing it yourself.
I am a prolific crafter and there are only so many brooches, hair clips, granny square pencil cases and bowls that my family and friends will ever use or want.
It would also be great for my craft supplies addiction to be able to pay for itself.
Magali (below) and her partner Jason, have put together the most beautiful shop. It is filled with amazing handmade objects and art and feels more like a gallery than a shop.
If you are ever in Daylesford, take the ten minute drive to Hepburn Springs. It is situated between the Palais and Red Star Cafe.
