International Women's Fair - Old Spitalfields

What an amazing way to spend a Saturday!

I was proud to be part of the International Women's Fair this weekend and it didn't disappoint! This was my first visit to Old |Spitalfields as a trader and really hope to back there again soon. What lovely people and space.

My stall was right opposite the stage area which with the speakers facing right in my direction and a great big drum kit being set up i was really worried! Was this a terrible place to be - would i be heard - would people crowd out the stall - it wasn't a cheap fair to attend so i was really worried......but i needn't be!

Yes it was noisy - yep - people stood in front of the stall, blocking access and no i couldn't be heard - but this all did not matter when the band started playing the atmosphere changed into a great big party - and i got the best seat in the house!

Have added a couple of pictures.....

So lots of happy friendly shoppers - lots of lovely comments and lots of sales - all while listening to the fabulous Electric Landladies......Simply Perfect!

A Crafty Weekend

Had a lovely, if slightly chilly (note to self - always pack an extra cardi in my kit!) weekend at the Cabbages and Kings Market in the lovely Abney Hall, Stoke Newington.

Met some lovely people - saw some beautiful crafts and art - so many talented people!!

Also met some lovely customers - was very happy to see some of my items go to lovely new homes.

Oh and did i mention the delish goodies from the cafe.....mmmmmmm.

So thank you Of Cabbages for a great weekend! I will be back on the 7th May
