A Day at the Markets


Today I went back in time....to yet again sell goods at the Markets.
I have done this many times in my life and here I was back again.
I did a lot of market stalls when my big girl was just a baby.
I used to set up a cot and have her sitting in the back while I tried to make some extra money.It wasn't always successful, but then that's the markets for you.
Nothing has changed.
Thank you to all those girls, Jen, Deb and Michelle that turned up to give us some support today.
Kathleen and Diana joined me today and we all had sales!
Diana makes fabulous hand made face creams and oils, and even thought she just finished work last Friday, she still managed to make some items for sale today.
Kathleen makes her amazing whimsygal range of brooches and goddess dolls and she had a lady buy one and come back to buy another!
I also did not do too badly for my first attempt
All that fresh air is not healthy though....neither is getting up at 6am on a Sunday morning!
So I am suffering tonight.
A touch too much of sun and no sleep in make this old girl a little pooped out!
Our stall looked very fancy shmancy though.....I had a good day!
