Where's me bag ! ! !

I went to the Arts Centre today to take a photograph of the canvas bag display, thinking they would have received some more in the post. What did I find, not more bags, but one less! My bag has been sold.

Don't know whether to be sad or happy. I'm pleased that somebody liked it so much that they wanted to buy it, but now that it's gone, no one else will be able to see it in the exhibition.

Normally when items are sold from an art exhibition the buyers can't remove them untill after the exhibition has closed. I have just checked the brochure and it states, 'There are sure to be some unique and beautiful new creations, all of which will be available to buy and take away.' So there you go then, that's plain enough. Flog them all and when there's none left the exhibition is closed.

I asked for two more bags, better make some more to replenish the dwindling stocks, ha ha.

  9. I am very sorry, Jane. I didn't know that was going to happen, I'm a bit peeved that they let it go so soon. I'll crack on with some more, but I don't want to be churning out the same stuff, need to think of new ideas.

  10. Love the bag, so unusual and would be great for beach holidays. If you do make more, perhaps you could show them here and have people make offers. You could agree that they would be shown in the arts centre first and then to the new owner afterwards.
