What would you do if you saw someone blatantly copying your work?
I was faced with this very dilemma today. I browsing in a vintage clothing shop (no names, but lets just say it was in Nicholson St. next to a lane way), when I noticed the woman behind the counter making a buttony necklace. Then I noticed one of my original lino necklaces laid out in front of her as she was putting together an identical piece.This must go on all the time , but to catch someone copying your work to sell in their shop was a bit of a surprise to say the least. I said something of course, but I can't be sure if she took much notice. If this has happened to anyone else I'd love some advice.( Sorry if I sound a bit cross!)
One big consolation is all the lovely people who stock my work are so loyal and supportive.
