If you are a connoisseur of the most exquisite forms of tedium then I recommend 6 hours at a market stall in winter. I’ve never known time go so slowly. The bits that just about made it worthwhile were those when I got chatting to some really interesting people, and the overall factor which put some plus signs in the balance was learning about selling to the general public. I’m still not sure about the best way to present my work in a form which will bring some money in, but making the stall much more professional looking is essential if I am to get more satisfaction from market trading.
Did I sell anything? Yes – 2 pictures and 3 packs of Christmas cards. This was just enough to keep this option going. For now though a return to activity!
