|Putting the finishing touches to our stalls before opening on Saturday morning and checking out all the lovely things on each others pitches|
|My area set up and ready to go, I like the Wedding Dress contrasted with the Butterfly Sheba Coat|
|The wood burner has just been lit to keep us all toasty for the day and we are waiting with hope for a stampede of visitors|
Just as the doors opened the wood burner was lit and I noticed how lovely the window is above, the hall is so light and airy and everyone’s work looks great, so here we all are chatting before a jolly busy day and catching up with our friends.
|A very good day on Saturday, the weather is perfect to bring in lots of customers|
|Lots of sales all round on Sunday, even more folk through the door than on Saturday, it was great|
|As the day went on it just got busier and busier and at the close of the day the sun shone brilliantly - a wonderful note to end the weekend on|
As the day went on the numbers kept going up and up. Among the groups who came in the door were some of my clients with their friends and families; it was great to have a catch up and they told their companions all about the work I had done for them, personal recommendation is the best PR in the world. One of those I spoke to in the afternoon was a lovely young woman who was deeply interested in all things creative; she took time to talk at length with many of us who were exhibiting our work and it was wonderful to bounce ideas around with her, I find young people so inspiring because they make such creative leaps, teenagers are cool. To round the day off perfectly, the sun came out from behind the clouds and gave us a stunning evening before setting, it was pure joy to walk up and collect my car ready for loading up.
The whole weekend was fantastic and Carey & Teresa have my grateful thanks for creating such a lovely atmosphere. I have booked an extra date to exhibit on Sunday June 5th as well as the previously booked date in October, and as I sit here I am wondering why I have not booked a day on the last market nearer to Christmas, methinks I will revisit that thought when I check out my diary for later in the year.
Next Tinker Belles Market is on Saturday 4th & Sunday 5thJune, 10am-5pm and I will be there on the Sunday, look forward to seeing you there.
