Quieter than the first day, but that’s okay. Lots of repeat customers, or people coming up and telling they got a mug/plate/bowl as a gift and would like something else. I think that’s one of the most rewarding parts of a craft fair: knowing that something I made is brightening somebody’s day, every day.

My name is Maaike Charron, and I'm a potter in St. John's, Newfoundland. I started fiddling around with pottery in summer 2006, when I was told volunteering in the local clay studio would get me free studio time. I mostly taught myself, spending a lot of time poring over books, magazines and websites, and occasionally pestering the more advanced (but very helpful) potters around me with questions. After about two years, I decided I'd gotten good enough to go into business for myself. This blog, started after my first big craft fair, was created to document the process of becoming a wondrously succesful craftsperson. (Or it will document How Not To Do It. We'll see.)
