Market Day

Hello Blog World.

So market day has finally arrived.  I was soooo excited for Kel and it wasn’t even my own stall, I can’t imagine how she felt.  We were up til after 12am the night before preparing all the last minute preparations and had to get up at 4am to be there by 5:30 to set up for opening to the public at 8am!!! Wow what a morning!
I should mention the name of the market is The Handmade Expo, and it’s on once a month here where I live.  If you live in SE QLD go, check them out.

Kel set up everything beautifully…

Look there are my little cards and 2 of my photo pegs. Also check out that fab owl material she has used for a nappy clutch!

There’s more my pegs and the pink box has all my cards in there

Look at the material on that hard clutch! So divine, unfortunately it sold.

Some beautiful boys clothes, I love the cars material…very cute.

market day 5

And some pretty girls clothes.  The strawberry short cake material takes me back to my childhood and I wanted to steal some of that black and aqua fabric for a handbag but Kel wouldn't let me.

And that’s everything all set up!  It was a great day and we had some lovely ladies either side of us.  2 sisters that made handmade soaps, the yummy smells were wafting over all day and a very talented young lady who is into millinery.  Beautiful hats, hairclips, fascinators etc…

Of course being a market I had to spend some money too… This is what I scored

market day 7

A beautiful one off girls dress for my friend in Melbourne.  This is one of Kel's designs.

And then hubby popped by after work and bought me this…

market day 8

It’s a silver ring with a tanzanite gems shaped as a flower.  Gotta love him.
I also bought something for my daughter as a stocking filler for Christmas but 13 year olds read so I can’t say what that was…not yet anyway.

So I still have all of Sunday left before heading back to work, I want to get some crafting in today, not sure what yet, but until then happy crafting.

Linking up with these fab parties

Serenity you
