Altered Matchboxes


I have been making and selling altered matchboxes for years now. I have had few of them in my shop due to the fact the I can be a bit of a negligent photographer. Today is the first day that I have begun posting some, for real people!!! Here they are,  the first of many I will be listing. Matchbox beauties:

June Portobello Market


Firefly Notes (me!) at Portobello West http://www.portobellowest.com/ in June.












Ok, so I figure after my last post I would take my own pictures and share them with the world. Discard my fear of craft table photos and go for it.
Here are the pics my iphone army.... here they are
for you all to see and you didn't have to sneak them!
I still haven't figured out blogger so they are all over the map here. The pictures landed and I haven't a clue how to move them around. Damn I wish I knew how to make my blog look pretty!!

Portobello West. My first one and I loved it! Was next to a really nice lady selling chainmail jewelery: http://creationsbyuli.ca/ . We chatted all day and watched people come and go. Such a beautiful venue really, the Rocky Mountaineer train station. Lots of old exposed brick and very high ceilings. Tons of windows to let in natural light and fans way up on the roof and uber deluxe bathrooms too (hurray!)! I was very pleased with the response that I received from the Portobello West shoppers (oh yea baby!) and look forward to being there again in July!

To market to market!




I wish I had some snappy pictures from my last market to post on here but alas I do not!! It seems as though others do though as the lady next to me pointed out!! It never occurred to me that people walk by with there I phones and snap pictures of your work to scam ideas!!! When she suggested that this happens to her all the time I must admit I thought that she was totally blowing this way out of proportion and then I watched........


I couldn't help feel a bit paranoid as I watched folks cruise up and look like they were texting over top of my goods! Could this be true?? Will that lechery little lady with the iphone be making my style of cards at the next market? Do I have any right to be pissed (the vendor next to me flat out got angry at folks standing next to her table with an I phone). Do I call them on it?? I dunno but it gives me some food for thought. Rude I say!
FIGURE IT OUT ON YOUR OWN PEOPLE!!!!!!!!!!

Incidentally I am at Portobello West for the first time (at that market) this coming Sunday June 27th from 12-6pm. I am really looking forward to it. Come on down and say Hi but LEAVE YOUR IPHONES AT HOME!! ha!!
MUAH! xo
