Art and Craft Markets in Liverpool

I have been researching art and craft markets in Liverpool to discover which would be the best to sell my work at.  I thought it might be useful to other artists and makers if I post what I have found so far here on my blog.  If anyone has any more information to add to this list, please comment below.  Buying from local art and craft markets means buying something you often can’t find on the high street, something unique and handmade with love.  Buying handmade from markets supports local talented makers.

  2. Hello Paul. Thanks for your comment and best of luck with your future creative work. I shall be creating a new list for the new year so check back later on. Best wishes, Alicia

  3. Hello Alicia,

    I am looking for places to sell my dolls and I have alot of reseach like but I am finding it diffcult to select an event in case I dont sell anything so I am just wondering did you sell much at the capstansbazaar fair?
    I am planning on attending the bold street not just vintage fair next month.

    Kind Regards,
    Joanna

  4. Hi Joanna. I think with these things it’s a case of ‘suck it and see’. I sold a lot of cards but just as importantly met lots of lovely people and creatives and gave out quite a few business cards. I have decided to stop doing markets until I have a good stock of higher priced items because trying to make money back on mostly greetings cards is difficult. It was an enjoyable event so I will be returning once I have more stock! Hope that helps and I wish you much success at your upcoming market.
