I was thinking of doing my traditional Sunday Snippet and making you wait until tomorrow to hear about my market, but I know so many of you are looking forward to the run down so I won’t be mean & make you wait.
Today I had a stall at Market Girl – The first time I’ve entered a boutique market.
Here is a photo of my stall at the beginning…
I was pretty happy with how it came together really.
Here are a few shots of the market while we were all setting up. So that’s why there aren’t customers yet…
The calibre of some of the stalls was very high, and I must admit that I found myself quite intimidated amongst many of the very seasoned “market girls”. But the lovely ladies in the stalls around me quickly made me feel relaxed.
I feel quite pleased with how it went. Overall I don’t think it was quite as busy as I was expecting, but I still did well enough to make it feel worth it.
I have some work to do this week to replenish my stock before next weekend’s market, but thankfully in some ways not enough to make me panic. A happy medium I feel!
And between you and me – I’m just happy to have survived it in one piece!
Because I am a really good advertisement for a person requiring cold & flu tablets at the moment… I spent all of yesterday in bed feeling like I wanted to hide from the world thanks to the most wicked sinus headache I’ve had in a long looooong time!
Drugs did not touch it and I was kind of worried about if I’d be up to today!
But I prayed with all my might that I would be over it in time, and thank God my prayers were answered and my headache was gone this morning.
I did lose my voice on several occasions throughout the day, but thankfully I managed to restrain from sneezing or snotting on anybody 😉
I couldn’t have done it without Mr Flutter though. Huge thanks need to go to him for helping me get there this morning (I would have got terribly lost if I hadn’t been following him) and helping me set up & down.
Yay for husbands! 😉
Here’s hoping that next week is at least as successful and my budget for FQ retreat in London will be feeling much much healthier…
