Arguably more art lovers walked through the doors than the organisers had ever dreamed about. The proof being that the wine ran out very early in the evening (with the organisers sending out urgently for new supplies, which incidentally also ran out very quickly) and the corridors between the booths were absolutely brimming with people.
Each booth seemed to have a constant stream of interested parties and no-one was talking recession !!
Today the Official Opening is at 11 am. It will be interesting to see how this develops. Back soon with updates.
