Well, okay, it was held on the 20th of March. Technically, just 9 days ago!
Sarah had a family birthday party to attend, so my partner Scott helped me carry everything to the church hall. We were very lucky that we could actually walk to this venue from home. Although we’d decided to book two tables so we’d have ample room. so of course that meant we brought more stuff!
The hall was light and airy, however there just were not very many people around on the day. We even had a celebrity to open the fair (Graham Cole of The Bill). Graham hung around for most of the day in fact. He was really lovely and genuinely enjoyed chatting to people and finding out more about craft in South East London. He himself is a long time resident of SE London. He loved our stuff 🙂 I even had my photo taken with him.
And just as the market opened I had my photo taken for the local paper. For the Newshopper to be exact. I’ve seen the proof online (the one with Copyright symbols all over the middle) and I’m very glad that I’m out of focus! Should be in the paper this week.
Sales wise the market was honestly pretty sad. But, we met some lovely crafters we’d “friended” online on UK Handmade and Folksy. And we were given the details of another market to do in July. So all in all, not a bad day. And we’ve become such a regular at these Misty Moon Markets (we’ve done 4 now!) that we’re friends with the organiser and his wife and a few of the other stallholders too. 🙂
Right, so now to the photos. Our lovely readers can finally see what I look like. Aren’t you lucky? Anyway…
…and the one I know you’ve all been *dying* to see…..
