Craft show didnt go to great at the weekend, think I need to aim higher, trouble is when you do that cost becomes an implication, but have given myself this year to find out all about craft shows from the cheapest to the expensive, from here on in they just get more expensive Sad
this was an image that sold on a consistent basis, it is the closest I have come to producing a "botanical" image
This is something the public do like, I sell it at a size of 650mm x 350mm this type of size seems to suit Joe public

large is an absolute must...or you will miss it !

Just hang in on the craft shows it will work out, I know they are expensive, the company I work for, used to do them on a regular basis, they started small years ago and grew into a successful business. So I hope it works the same for your goodself.

I can see why this goes down well with Joe Public but I think your trademark chrissd images are equally - if not more - beautiful. In fact I've been on the brink of buying some from your website more than once (I really must get my act together and actually DO it!).
