Having worked with ceramics for over 4 decades, I’ve sold and supplied work at a variety of outlets; flea markets, shops, hotels, restaurants, galleries and art shows. Selling at markets takes me back to the early 80’s where I first sold my ceramics at the Market Theatre –flea market in downtown Johannesburg. In those days we were still living under the apartheid regime, however the Market Theatre operated independently, accommodating a vibrant atmosphere of multi-cultural and non racial discrimination. Stall holders of all races sold side by side, jived to the music and mingled with the locals. There was a great buzz and the Market Theatre itself, hosted controversial shows and live music and dynamic dance performances.
Selling at markets is always a humbling experience, literally grounding one, bringing one in touch with reality. Last weekend, I had a stand at the bi-annual Potter’s Market in Rondebosch. I had great sales and wonderful feedback. The next Potter’s Market will be in November.
