In terms of the goods offered for sale there is always change. In the early days, we saw lots of wooden toys, silk scarves and sewing-based crafts and simple pottery. Pottery now comes in so many different styles and colours; each artisan is truly one of a kind. Fashion is a big part of our show along with jewellery. Home decor, from sculpture and original paintings to acrylic and metal timepieces, is also a growing area. Artisan displays have seen a huge evolution. Each space is a mini-store front or boutique creating a visually exciting shopping experience.
Another trend we have noticed is an ever-increasing standard of craftsmanship. Art Market is a beautiful show that just keeps getting better. That is due to the high demand of consumers for finely crafted items. We have also noticed buying handcrafted, hand-made and supporting artisans directly is now in fashion.
