Here is my report and photos of some of the sculptures, which went to loving homes.

I had a slightly larger stand this time; so my works were more spread out. Just before PV, I was told that one of my photos was in the Evening Standard. How lovely! PV kick-started with Grayson Perry looking at my stand for a long time. In fact, we were getting dressed at the back, so neither Mike or I was there. I came back just after he has left my stand. I would have loved chatting with him. Who wouldn't ?
|Alice - sold|
Friday was packed and we were very busy, and we also had the highest sales. I was unable to have a chat with old customers much. Sorry!
|Owl - sold|
Saturday was also packed, but somehow customers' main interests have shifted to smaller animals and by noon the shelves for animals looked bare. The trend might have been started by Keith Brymer Jones from the Great pottery throw down, BBC. He and his partner Marg were our first customers on that day. They were very nice people. I am aware that he is adored by lots of fans; I can see why he has been so popular after meeting him.
|Polar bear - sold|
In our limited experience, Sundays are usually crowded, but lots of people browse more than shopping, but this Sunday was different. Remaining animals have gone and quite a few big sculptures have gone. It was a very good Sunday.

I have recognised quite a few customers who came back. It is lovely to see them again. I will never talk this much until next show. Mike, post office counter lady and postmen are only people I talk between shows, as I am extrovert recluse.
|Enso - sold|
|Tulip - sold|
|Girl with blue shoes - sold|
Already one week has past since we came home. I have finally unpacked boxes. There are lots of follow ups and admin works after the show.
