Market Stall

Spitalfields Market Stall

My mate Brenda is an up coming artist and recently created some greeting cards with features of her detailed drawing style. She wanted to test the waters and get feedback on her greeting cards, so she hired a stall in Spitalfields market, last Monday. She asked me to help her out with the prep and on the actual day. Bouncing ideas off each other I quickly rustled up a mood board which inspired the look and feel of the stall; the idea was to create a rustic/vintage look. The hats are handmade from our friend's, mother's line.

We created mini feedback sheets and gave free 'thank you' lollipops for those who filled them in. It was definitely an insightful day and would love to do it again. 

Things we learned and Tips:
