Fishinkblog 9385 Fishink Artwork 6  It’s the Sale Arts Trail this weekend Woo Hoo !

The shop that I’m displaying work in, will be open 10am – 5pm Saturday and 11am – 4pm Sunday. I’m at Minikin Emporium, 11 Northenden Road, Sale, M332DH on both days with a selection of work on this blank wall below..on the left… assuming all goes to plan today, whilst I’m putting the work up ! (flippers crossed).

Here is a little Q&A session I did earlier for the Sale Arts Trail, giving a little more information about my work.

Last weekend, I looked at other people’s work….

Just around the corner from our house is a lovely buzzy little place called Beech Road.

Where you can find, a selection of wholesome restaurants, quirky bars, gift shops deli’s etc. Once a year they shut off the street and hold a Festival. This year it was on Sunday, a day of half baking sunshine, t-shirt and shorts kind of weather, and the other half of cold torrential (soak you through to the skin) downpours. Luckily we picked the sunny half to explore the festival!

Lots of colourful characters, a great selection of food and drinks to sample …

Lambert & Sons  have the skills to re-purpose furniture or more specifically suitcases and create very individual tables, hampers and bathroom cabinets.

Laura Nathan had a beautiful collection of paper stitched art and printed cards. I couldn’t resist one of her Hares, and a photo of these wild Elvis shoes from another stall. The blue suede ones must have all sold out !

More eye-catching goodies on Clair Templeton‘s stall. Cushions, cards, tote-bags and even doggie-bandannas. (No I resisted )

Lastly you can see my exciting bargain-finds of the day below. The Whitefriars glass vase has a tiny, tiny (I mean you can’t really notice it) chip and the Staffordshire Cat bookends are crackle glazed, but in top condition. Would you believe that all of them set me back just £6 ! Unbelievable, I was a happy soul. I hope everyone didn’t get too wet during the afternoon and had a successful day, thanks again for letting me take photos of your fabulous stalls.

      Do tell her to say hello. Thanks for the well wishes. Have a hot Venetian one yourself… not meant to sound rude but as you live in Venice and it’s going to be warm : 0
