Nothing like a bit of last minute drama before a market. Elodie getting a fever the night before and me terrified she’d end up in hospital again. She woke up chirpy but hot and during the day retro daddy took her to the dr’s and you guessed it. Tonsilitis again. Back on the antibiotics and hoping we avoid hospital and convulsions this time.
So apart from worrying about how she was going, I had a great market. I adored having the double stall space, it felt like a luxury to be spread out over 2 big tables and it meant lots more space for customers to spread out.
Unfortunately the lovely big ladder display did not fit in the car. Just as retro daddy predicted. Looks like I need to leave little people at home next time in order to get it in the car. It sure is lovely and I think I might keep it in my craft room. $149 from Howards Storage because I knew you’d ask.
And I got asked lots of times today if my quilts were sale. Maybe next year, in my spare time with the twinnies at preschool. Who knows.
And I always wish I had more time to do a round of the stalls. Retro daddy is pretty happy that I don’t but today I managed to pick up a gorgeous top to wear this summer. I walked past it 3 times and adored it. It’s actually a maternity top and is so gorgeously soft and lovely to wear. You can check out the range here. I hope I can pull it off this summer.
And the lovely Sarah was now selling cupcakes and cake pops. Cupcake- a- licious. I bought a box of cupcakes that lasted 10 minutes after we walked in the door and Sarah ever so nicely dropped these cake pops off to me. They didn’t last long either. Retro daddy thought they were very delicious too.
One of the things I love at markets is all the people you meet. Old friends, new friends. I love catching up with the same stallholders and meeting new ones and of course my lovely customers. I wouldn’t do markets if I didn’t love meeting my lovely customers and readers and making new ones. It’s always fun. Thank you. And a huge thank you to my very gorgeous helpers Amy and Lisa. Such a pleasure to spend the day with you and consider yourself hired next year.
But for now my feet are up, I’ll get my quilting tutorial up later tonight after dinner and I’m taking it easy to recover. Markets take it out of me and especially when you’ve been up all night next to a sick bub. But I’ve got a tub or two I’d like to clear on eBay this week and will share links later this week.
