Winter Barn Market
Today's wet weather has reminded me of the weather we experienced at the recent "Christmas in Winter" Barn Market.
The Friday evening was so wet & windy that the outside stalls were cancelled - probably just as well too! So I spent a quiet, warm night indoors with pizza, red wine and good friends. However the weather did not dampen the spirits of the stallholders or the many customers who came out to celebrate this special event, as apparently it was a very busy and hugely successful evening.
Fortunately the weather improved dramatically on the Saturday with only a small shower when I was first setting up, and then the sun came out along with all the people.
I enjoyed a lovely day next to Pili Pala Pieces, Jasmine Rose & What Katie Did Next, was visited by some regular & new customers alike and also took some custom orders as well.
I was well and truly exhausted by the end of it as I had spent the week at a new job, plus preparing for the market along with juggling kids & being driven around the whole week by my mum, as we didn't have a car (still don't ... but that's another story!).
But I had a great day as did the other stallholders and once again Helen, Miriam, Dean & Jade did a fantastic job in making it all happen - thanks guys!
The next Barn Market (and the last for 2010) is on Saturday 9th October from 10am to 3pm - see you then.
