September Catch Up

Well it would appear I forgot to keep my website updated on all the activities I’ve been up to so this time I will do it by month!

September 2nd I was a vendor at a Winlaw Art Show! It was such a sunny and gorgeous day, I ended up selling 5/6 colouring books I brought with me, made some new friends and watched a grown adult deny his kid a push on the swing because he was admiring my mushroom canvas paintings that are left over from ArtWalk. See below images from the Winlaw Market.

September 2nd in the evening I participated in an Art Throwdown at The Royal (a bar on Baker Street in Nelson). There was two rounds, three artist are put up on stage with their backs to the audience but easel to the audience so they can watch the art live in real time, we are given and hour to create! Then there’s a raffle and the winners get to take a piece of art home with them! I had a secret weapon… I really hope it worked and whoever got my painting I hope it absolutely glows in its new home (: See below images from the Art Throwdown.

September 3rd, yes I know the next day. I had a stall at the Pride Market, it was supposed to be cold and rainy.. it rained but was terribly humid. I was extremely excited because I had designed some Pride stickers and I was so ready to show them to the world! (They can be found in the pride section of the store on my website) I made some connections with other vendors and saw lots of smiles! I also shared the table with my cousin tiger.tuesday , who was selling cards and prints. See below images from the Pride Market.

September 16th, when Nelsons Farmers Market opened for vendors I applied and was just put onto a wait list but on September 16th it finally happened and I joined the Saturday Cottonwood Falls Farmers Market for the first time ever! It was a super sunny day, I met some interesting people and neglected to bring myself lunch but overall had a pretty great time! This was also around when people started recognizing me from other events like the Throwdown and Pride Market and even as far back as the Polka Dot Dragon Festival! See below images from the Cottonwood Market.

Sept 17, yep I know another back to back weekend! Once a month there is a Sunday Market hosted at The Royal ( a bar on Baker Street in Nelson). Magnificent Monsters (Instagram) and I shared a table at this one. It was super busy but I didn’t end up making too much sadly. Although recently I have changed the layout of my setup and I think it really helps with the engagement. See below images from the Sunday Market.

National Truth and Reconciliation Day 🧡, Sept 30, A very busy month was ended with the second Cottonwood Falls Farmers Market I attended. I got to be honest I do not remember to much from this one, I think my brain was tired. I do know I was in the paved little round about area by the live music, it was a tad rainy and a lady started crying at my booth, she was quite emotional over I believe the message behind the moose hide squares. See below images from the Cottonwood Falls Market.
