For all you people who do not know, I had a stall at the Art in the Garden event in Sheffield Botanical Garden selling my kanzashi. Although I didn't sell out (which I didn't expect too), I received a lot of positive comments for my creations with many people saying that it is nice to see something different. Also quite a few of my business cards were taken so hopefully they will become future orders!
Of course to receive maximum attention I had to wear one of my bold kimono and what better then my new purple yabane ko-furisode. My helper for the weekend, April (who was kind enough volunteer her time and effect) also brought along her kimono to wear. So a big thank you to April!
Unfortunately I don't seem to have any photos of myself in kimono despite spending a total of 17 hours in kimono (which is a record for me). Never mind but I did notice a lot of people taking pictures of April and I, so one is bound to pop up on flickr for me to copy (I hope).
Anyway, now I have the long task of listing my kanzashi onto my etsy shop which I'm looking forward too.
