It's a wrap

My second Made'n'Thornbury market was just as exciting as the first, and even busier!

This is the before shot, as I was setting up.....


The sweet little donkey apron found a new home...

It was lovely to see so many bloggers - Bev, Nikki, Bec, Fiona, Jacinta, Anna, Melanie, (I hope I didn't miss anyone) and to put faces to names....

JasperBoy Jen (blogless) came to visit and bought me a heart biccie....isn't that sweet!

....and Liz came to visit and not only bought me some vintage linens, but this amazing Betty Jo vintage lino brooch for my birthday! Sorry about the blurry photo, I was trying to take a photo of myself wearing it yesterday. Thankyou so much Liz!

If you love Aunty Mabels Handbag as much as me, there's a similar one here on Georgielove, and Liz is also having an amazing Mothers Day giveaway.

As per usual, I had to have my own little shopping spree at the market, but I haven't unpacked my goodies yet, so I'll save them for later on this week.

A huge thankyou to sister, Mrs T, my nephew Mr X, and Tinniegirl for helping me out yesterday. I couldn't of participated without your help, and I'm very grateful!

Wow looks like you're really getting into to swing of markets now! A real pro! I wish I could get to something like that, sadly it's a 3 hour drive. Poo. I enjoy seeing your beautiful stall though- even if it is only in blog land!

Hi Cam,

I hope you were happy with your sales yesterday and that you are inspired to keep selling at future markets.

It was a pleasure meeting you! Thank you!

For those who haven't yet visited this market, I can highly recommend it. It had a real community feel and had numerous quality products available. I spent up big $$$$$$

PS - Did I buy the bag that Mrs T

I know exactly what you mean, I was too sleep deprived to make too many introductions on Saturday. I apologize also for not introducing myself. I was very admiring of you however. I shared my table with Tania from Cheeky Little Monsters and she is in fact the clever creator of the vintage toys:)
