A Tisket, A Tasket, Check Out the Crafty Basket

by Kelly

Yay, I sold some things at the flea market! Here's my display basket -

I sold two of three afghans and a couple of blue bears. Colorful bears seem to be more popular than brown. Duly noted. Surprisingly the heart ornaments didn't sell at all. I thought they would be snapped up, since they're what I think of as 'Midwest crafty'.

I wonder why red yarn always appears so searing in photographs? Maybe next time I'll try using the 'red eye' remover in a photo editor.

Mixed results have to be reported, though, because my husband's beautiful dream catchers didn't sell. He was disappointed, but I love them so much I don't mind keeping them all!

Someone should really start the dreamcatcher revival. If bell bottoms can come back, so can beautiful things like this. Maybe they need to be more cold and modern, made from steel wire and dangling bits of broken glass.
Sort of the antithesis of what a dream catcher is for, and meant to catch the broken dreams of a struggling city dweller.

Do you think that would be a good platform for a modern art show?
