Over the long weekend from Friday to Sunday, Singapore celebrated Heritage - Sparkles In The City. Many events were taking place simultaneously in the city and I was stationed outside the Singapore Art Museum for 3 days to sell my bags. All the craft sellers with me are regular sellers from MAAD.
Ok, so how did I do? I sold a total of 15 bags, 15 pouches and 27 hair accessories. I did good, didn't I?
This is me on Saturday. I wore my LUCKY roots T Shirt. It worked! I sold the most on Saturday.
Thru'out the 3 days, there were percussion performances in regular intervals just a few steps from my tables. The first time was rather exciting. But after 3 days, I became rather irritated and my good ear is still ringing from the plak plak chang chang cling clang tok tok PHIANG. On and on and on and on. Each performance was at least an hour long!
I did not take many photos of my customers. It was too hot, too noisy and I simply forgot.
July at Iluma Arts Market. She bought this drawstring pouch.
It was a pretty intense 3 days. I was hot and itchy. I was high on antihistamine. I have no idea if I was bitten on the chest or my allergy was triggered. On Sunday, my eyelids and nose and cheeks puffed up. I think I still looked human because no one screamed. I had good and bad taxi drivers. I don't know which is worse. The one who drove like a F1 driver or the one who let off gas mid-way. Anyway, I'm exhausted. I'm gonna take 1 day break before I start sewing my next batch of bags. My current stock is pitiful. I was almost wiped out!!
