Well, it was a big day! A few late nights in the lead up and a head full of things to remember. The whole process was an insight into what dedicated stall holders put in to their businesses week in and out. Hard work.
The organisers of the event were at it all day, setting up and coordinating all the arrivals and setting up. It was lovely to glimpse all the handmade hard work as I arrived to put together my little making room. The atmosphere was friendly and everyone seemed curious about each other’s wares. Many beautiful things.
Once the market was ‘open’ it was a buzz of people. I think that our area really needs these kind of events. They bring people together and expose talents, creativity and an all important community feeling. That was certainly my feeling, anyway!
I slept very well afterwards and felt proud to have held my first stall, and a few people even took home some of my treasures!
