This little blogger went to market
My first market was so much fun! Unfortunately the crowds weren't there, but my friends came and visited (and bought!) and Michelle and I had a lovely day sitting, stitching, eating sausage sandwiches and lots of chocolate and talking to nice people. I was happy not to sell out, and very happy to just be sitting still for the first time in a fortnight. The weather was perfect. It was just a lovely day.
Of course I took my camera and took photos of us setting up, but then the camera was packed away and I forgot to take more photos. But our stall looked so pretty. Here it is being set up (we fixed the skewiff table cloths and mountains of boxes and cases, and put a screen up behind our stall shortly after). You'll notice the priority early on was finding a shady place to sit. We like to be comfortable, us Michelles.
I made way too many sunnyboys and boxes for sockses and most didn't even see the light of day, as there was no more room to display them. So we got creative and used the hooks I'd brought along.
I'll be photographing and listing stuff for my Etsy store tonight (hopefully), so if there's something you were after as a Christmas gift, keep an eye out.
