Winter 2D Art Market @ the Bluecoat, Liverpool

Here are some photos from our day at the 2d art market on 23 November 2013. We made special Christmas cards for this event since it was close to the holiday season. It was our first time having a table outside in the court yard and we had plenty of trouble trying to set up our gazebo tent.
