Yesterdays Christmas Fair!

It makes a huge difference when you go to a market where the stall holders are selected and just happen to be the nicest people ever! I had such a great time it was like we were all just one big family! There was lots of chatting, laughter and of course the customers were all so nice.....a few of them mentioned they have been following my blog, one lovely lady called herself the stalker, she was the sweetest customer I'd love to chat to her again one day because she was so funny!
I've been to markets before where the stall holder next to you doesn't even say hello.....like get over yourself it doesn't hurt to say hello does it! That wasn't the case at the 2010 Annual Christmas Fair for the Brain Foundation, one of the organisers ( Pip ) even looks after your stall if you want a loo break or to get a coffee and lunch! How amazing is that!!
I had a great day on the sales front but that was way surpassed by how much fun I had with all the gorgeous people I met.....some of which I had met through blogs previously, it was like catching up with old friends!
Now I need to get my sewing space cleaned up so I can start fresh, I only have two weeks ( 4 Dec ) until the next market and I'd like to get another big parcel filled with goodies off to Shop Handmade also!
Have a lovely day and thanks for stopping by.

So glad it went well for you Brenda. I agree is makes a huge difference to your market day when all the stall holders are getting along and the organisers are helpful. It's a much nicer vibe for the shoppers to shop in too! Your work is of such a lovely design and quality - you deserve great success! Good luck for your next market.

Hey Brenda :) So lovely to catch up with you again in person yesterday. The Xmas Fair certainly did have a good vibe - I think the shoppers picked up on that too! (I'll get that info on Mudgee to you soon).
